    Xone96 vs Djm 900NXS2

    Which one would you get if you want to use it with a pair of xone k1īs and traktor. !??!?!?

    Both are Traktor ready now.
    Both have great sound now.
    Both have dual audio cards.
    Pioneer has lots of effects.
    Allen has 2 send/return channels (pioneer just 1).

    i think is just a matter of which one you feel more confortable with. huh guys?..
    There are other differences....

    I've owned a Xone 92 since they were released and bought a few over the years. It's a sturdy mixer with analogue sound, the knobs are not plastic feel as many pioneers are.

    BUT...

    Aside to what has been mentioned on this thread, no one mentioned the parametric eq's with two mids. Have you ever played on a mixer with two mids? I don't know of another branded mixer that has such a great feature and when you have a main stage, when you twist those mids magic happens! Once you play like that for a while you realize some things that are fun and sound great, and without that, you cannot do what you want. I love those two mids and Allen & Heath are a brand i trust, get the 96. I'm looking to sell the 92's I have and upgrade myself to where your headed.

    I'm looking to get a mixer and had my eye on the xone 96 for the extra channels and EQ, but what happens when you play out and they have Pioneer mixers at the venue?

    It must be a bit hard having to play on something you are less familiar with. If you are practicing at home with 4 band EQ and then faced with 3 band in the club it must mean changing your mixing style on the night. Plus different FX and layout?

    Do you take your own mixer? or do you just adjust to what they have?

    I'm looking to start DJing/performing my own tracks - with a sort of hybrid setup using Traktor and Ableton and an X1 and probably something like an apc40 or maschine jam controller but it all starts to get a bit unwieldy to carry with you and bringing your own mixer just seems like going too far. They are pretty heavy for a start.

    A mixer with built in soundcard at least reduces the need to bring your own soundcard and cables but then what if the drivers are different to what you have at home.

    I wouldn't worry about playing out on the Pioneer.

    It's painfully obvious how to mix on one. The Xone 96 is a beast in comparison.

    If you really wanted to become proficient at effectively using the DJM's effects, that would be a good use case for owning one.

    Otherwise, I would take the Xone 96 any day.
