    The Behringer is a good mixer but does not compare to the Allen & …So far this mixer is working as expected. Had a Behringer but will just keep that as a backup. The Behringer is a good mixer but does not compare to the Allen & Heath. I did pay much more for the Xone:43. If I had to find a con with this mixer, it would be that the LED’s in the meters are not isolated from each other. This makes (for example) the +3 glow when the zero LED is the last one to be powered on. Gives it a cheap look.

    Best 4-channel dj mixer for the money right nowI’ve had this mixer for a year and I’m convinced it’s the best 4-channel dj mixer available now for the money. I even like this more than the 92, but that is personal preference. And I paid $750 new at Guitar Center right when it came out. It appears retail price has decreased $50 everywhere since then.Rather than pouring over the details of why this mixer is amazing, I’ll focus on some improvements and a few complaints compared to the the Xone 22/42/92 (I used to own the 42, and I’ve used the 22 and 92 a lot).This has phono option on each channel, whereas the 42 only had two phono.External effect knobs: The external effect send/return knobs are nice and fat, compared to the smaller ones on the 42. One complaint here is that it’s too easy to accidentally nudge the knob, which basically starts killing your signal even if you aren’t using any effects. Just leave that knob down all the way at dry (to the left) and don’t touch it ever. I wish there was a way to deactivate these knobs, but there isn’t. This is a minor complaint, but it still effects performance; if you’re in the mix and accidentally nudge the knob up, you’ll lower the output on that channel and it will sound bad. I’ve seen some people play with these always at noon, but realize when you are playing this way the you are continuously playing with an attenuated signal. The output signal will be significantly less than what the channel gain is set at. You can do this if you want, but it is not how I prefer to dj.New cue and filter buttons feel great and they are quicker to punch on/off compared to the 22/42/92 models. The filter itself is exactly the same.Easy X / OFF / Y channel selector above each channel.Single fat, burly ground screw. Easier to ground than the older model.Overall better appearance and finish than the 22/42/92, and I love the top finish. I could do without the orange accents, but I’m not going to dwell on that.Phono pre-amps are significantly weaker than the 22/42/92. This can pose a problem, especially if you’re mixing digital and vinyl at the same time. It’s nearly impossible to clip a record on this mixer — there are literally only a few dance records in my collection that can make the red LED light up. While this can be a good thing sometimes, it’s also not good when you can barely get a record to hit zero dB channel gain. You will often have to play with the gains maxed when using vinyl. On the other hand, it does allow for more fine adjustments of channel gain compared to 22/42/92 models.Also regarding channel gains, I like the design of the new LEDs on the 43 and I like that they are flush with the top panel, but there is too much signal bleed among the LEDs. Sometimes it’s difficult to discern how loud the track really is — this was not a problem on the 22/42/92 and it seems to be a design flaw here.43 has both 1/4 inch and 1/8 inch headphone out.Overall an amazing analog dj mixer for the money, and in my opinion even better than the 92 if you’re like me and you don’t like 4-band channel EQ and you don’t need two filters when mixing.
