Allen & Heath is opening the gates on their brand-new Xone:23 DJ mixer set to début on Thursday at the opening of the NAMM show in Anaheim, California. The mixer, designed to be a feature-heavy update to the Xone:22 mixer, keeps the same two-channel design but adds a unique new form factor to the steel faceplate and a number of features – watch the video introduction and then check out the full details from A&H below.
- 4 RCA inputs – two PHONO, two line
- 3-band total kill EQ
- XONE VCF filters – low pass and high pass, with the frequency and resonance controls seen on the DB:2/4 mixers
- Replaceable crossfader with curve selection
- External send/return FX loop
- RCA Record out
- Balance XLR mic in with 2-band EQ
- Balanced XLR master out
- RCA booth out

The Xone:23 will cost around £242 (excluding VAT) – roughly $400 USD, and is expected to start shipping in 2014.
what do you think about numark m3 4 the money..
Id like to see A&H get an effects device out.
borrowing from the db series
They should update the 92 but leave the wings off
everything about this looks perfect except for the price
Nice RCA cables! does anyone know who makes them?
d+ Series RCA Cables
Missed a trick not including a DVS loop as per the DJ Tech DIF-1S I think
frequency and resonance of the DB2/4? is this analogue, or digital ? is the mixer analogue ? interesting that they revamp the 22, when the 32 is quite outdated. do they plan to make more analogue mixers ? so many questions..
I was looking in the user manual on A&H’s website and I saw that the PHONO inputs can be converted to Line inputs (similar mod to the Xone 92) which gives this mixer so much more potential.
I ques new Xone DB mixers are coming soon…
That makes no sense. Those are almost brand new and A&H has product cycles almost as long as Rane.
I hope they will also update the DB:4.
The Xone:92 was the perfect mixer for me and has been since 2009. Sadly I’m slowly wanting for an integrated sound card. I don’t need a DB4, it doesn’t have the same I/O as the 92. I don’t want Pioneer it just isn’t as warm as an Allen&Heath mixer. I don’t need every mixer button Midified, I just want too lose my NI Audio 8 and I’ll be a happy man.
check out the Denon Dn-x1600 mixer…. i was having similar issues with finding the right mixer for me and the x1600 is what i decided on…. for the price and abilities build into it is a phenomenal Mixer…. fully midi mappable built in sound card had the lowest latency i’ve seen out of any midi device. Traktor scratch certified right out the box… 4 channel, 2 mic inputs, built in rout able FX unit, midi out,
Could this be a sign that there is a revamp of the 92, or possibly the entire line, coming?
I’d like to think so! 😀
Finally the mixer I have been waiting for, and it doesn’t have a filter per channel, and it’s really ugly. I would cut those wings off first thing.
I feel exactly the same way. No way I’m buying that.
+1 looks terrible! What on earth were the designers thinking?
It just look like shit. You cant only select between the two filters not like the xone42 where can select several filters. And those cut off design ugly
