    I think this is a poop product, hey A&E Nice mic input placement..classy : and wheres the traditional 4 band eq your so well known for? UGH….

    • Chet Manly

      traditional lol?

      • BiGMAc

        sorry chet maybe I haven’t been around long enough to be using words like that…

    • MrNozzi

      agreed mic placement, sux. other than that.. its not bad.

  • bigbeatzz

    It seems like a great little mixer but, why the heck is it so ugly? What is the benefit of the faceplate design?

    • synthet1c

      your looking at it from a standalone photo.. if you look at the last image pushed up against the reloop decks it look fine. the reason the edges are there is so you can attach the mixer between two turntable cases

    does this mean i can get a xone 22 at a discount now :D

    Thanks for this very good review. It’s great when a product is put into context and compared to other models of the same brand (something I miss very often in reviews).

    Just one question on the dual input: it seems innovative, but is it also practical? In what situation would I want a second signal to run through my channel? Wouldn’t two simple AUX knobs that don’t go through the EQ and volume of the main channels would be a better option? But maybe I’m overlooking something.

      It’s useful if you want one mixer but switch between PC/turntable/CDJ inputs.

    I would still buy Xone 22 over this one. Well for EDM mixing. For scratching this one may be better. For flawless mixing Xone 22 has longer upfaders and separate filter per channel. So IMO if you scratch Xone 23 if you mix club music, Xone 22 still wins in my books.

    Well. Short story. I tired most mixers on the market. Starting form Numark, Denon, Pioneer, Ecler and finally recently just bought Xone DB2. OMG! Now I understand why people love it so much. AH mixers have souls! Sound spectrum is something else :)

    If you can, and have cash, just buy Xone DB2. Sooner or later you will end up with one. Why try something else… I am telling you. At the end of the line there is always AH mixer. Best in the world! (well there are Rane mixers but they are for scratch perverts, similar sound quality but shorter faders for scratching).

    My 2 cents…

    • reqz

      The Xone 22 doesn’t have separate filters per channel either..

      • mikefunk

        Yep. You are right. Sorry. I forgot. I had it for short time.

        Still not real upgrade. Rather different arrangement plus more scratch oriented and some tricks.
        It’s seriously missing audio card upgrade here (digital). I am sure they will get next version with sound card (or new model) but it’s still kind of Apple type dick move, Nothing new really. Just other version of same concept focused for different market segment within same price-range.

      I got a DB2, LOVE IT!!!!

      • MrNozzi

        DB2 is for a different type of DJ all together.

        Techno, house, electro… DB2
        Turntablism and flipping records and scratching youd want something like this… I guess.. you know a battle mixer.

        I have a DB2, play electro and use four decks and I couldnt think of a better mixer that has everything.

        Ive asked some of my hiphop DJ friends if I should bring the DB2 to their sets and they said that it just wont do.

        • Clay Ford

          Very true. It has a shitty crossfader curve for scratching.
