There mixer layouts are always over the top. Just too damn busy! Kinda played out!

Busy yes but more refined and spacious then the 92.

I like the easy filter setup and 'flexfx' design; I'd opt for one over a DJM800.

Maybe a fun DubStep mixer?

Plus colored blinky lights look cool when you . . . do drugs!

They do seem to lack consistency in their layouts... the flex-fx thing is a welcome addition. Using an EFX with the 92 is a pain.

Only thing I don't like is the crossfader assigns (even though I rarely ever use a crossfader)... you can assign each channel to X or Y, then enable/disable the crossfader with a separate button. Why not just do an X/Post/Y switch per channel? More flexible.

Oh, the USB connection on the top is another oddity. Unless there's another one on the back, then it's fine

I do love the cue buttons on the Xone's. Much more rugged than the ones on my 2016a.

just noticed that it's a full-cut three band EQ now instead of the four band they used to use.
i didn't really mind the four band, but i know lots of people did.

it looks like you can run all three filter types at the same time - am i right?

It's that way on all their other mixer, so I assume it's the same.

I never really got too excited about the 4 band eq on my 92 when I had it. Doesn't make much difference to me.

I don't understand why A&H fails to provide a rotary kit option. I know that the XONE 92 can be purchased as a rotary but it would be great if their entire mixer lineup has provisions to swap the linear faders for knobs.
