Notes: ARS's new flagship tabletop mixer is a serious piece of kit. Hand-made in Japan using proper audiophile-spec components, it's a strong contender for the title of ultimate rotary mixer. DJ Harvey's already bought one. We don't blame him.

Notes: A&H's flagship DJ mixer, replacing the much-loved Xone:92. Tweaked and upgraded where necessary but still a clean analogue signal path and lovely filters. It's this or a Pioneer DJM-900 really, isn't it? Your call.
Xone:96. The long-awaited follow-up to a genuine club classic.
A new, uncompromising analogue DJ mixer, destined to be the heart of your creativity, Xone:96 takes the legendary soul of the acclaimed Xone:92 and redelivers it, enhanced, and with state-of-the-art digital connectivity.
It's all here. The huge, detailed, space-shaking analogue sound that only Xone delivers. A refined, precision 4-band EQ. Unrivalled dual Xone:VCF filters with CRUNCH harmonic distortion. And a dual 32-bit USB soundcard (24 Channels @ 96kHz) with Traktor Scratch certification right out of the box.
Xone:96 lets you connect your whole rig, from laptops and turntables, to pedals, synths and drum machines.
Two dedicated FX sends, four stereo input channels (with 4-Band EQ), two stereo input channels with all new 3-Band Parametric EQ + two auxiliary stereo return channels. And a separate master insert for your outboard hardware.
Explore new possibilities with a familiar layout of beautifully tactile controls. And rely on the industrial build quality that exceeds the demands of relentless back-to-back performances, night after night.
