Some features have been duplicated on lower price point mixers since this launched about 5 years ago. Other gear has hit market Since also that I would find intriguing (Model1, & FF6.2, each for different reasons, those in the know would know why). After 2 years of home studio use, I can say this sounds miles better than the Xone:92 it replaced. I’ve also owned a Xone:62, Xone:S2, Vestax, Roland, Numark (gag), Tascam, and DJed on the Pioneer line that’s been around since the late 90s. Really it’s the best audio quality I’ve experienced myself. Never had the pleasure of playing on the creme de la creme units I read about (Urei, old Rane rotary, Bozak, Formula Sound, etc), and hopefully that’ll change someday, the latter mentioned being a goal to demo someday (or even buy if the lucky stars line my pockets). Analog vinyl signals sound superb, it’s a digital mixer so good files sound equally pleasing. DJing in the red is a no-no, but in this unit with vinyl is okay to do on occasion, with certain records having an odd improvement that I rarely expect, but am tickled pink when I hear it, saturation that can only happen from components that focus on audio quality. Each of the 4 channels can easily select between the sound card inputs, and the connected gear on the rear. More per channel switches are on the rear to select between SPDIF-phono-line. The switches are a tad small, and take some getting used to if you desire to not move from the DJing position to change selection. I got used to it, though on occasion I still need to walk around to the rear of my desk to confirm correct selection. The FX send/return is routed magnificently, my RMX-1000 has been all but ignored over the previous 5 years before I got this for myself. I use it all the time now. That’s for another review. But turning FX on and off, selecting which channels to route, with a small bit of practice, displays no volume changes, no clicks, and a predictable workflow I was never able to achieve on my 92. Isolator EQ gets used more to soften low end for the sake of happy neighbours, but would see use in a club. I’ve been eager to play this thing out and I hope to real soon. Expensive, yes. Justifiable price point, again, a whole heartedly expressed, YES!
