Allen & Heath launches updated XB-14 broadcast mixer

Allen & Heath has launched a new version of its compact broadcast mixer, XB-14. Based on requests from broadcast users, XB-14² incorporates several new features, including a dedicated audition bus, enhanced stereo channel configurations, updated mic preamps, more flexible monitoring and a new matte paint finish.

Designed for a broad range of applications from small radio or internet broadcast studios, to hospital radio, university radio, community radio and larger studios with multiple rooms, the XB-14² is equipped with a wealth of features specifically for broadcasters, including telco inputs for telephone callers, mic fader start sensing for external connection and internal automatic muting of the speaker outputs, stereo channel start/cue outputs for transport control, multiple headphone outputs and an additional stereo bus (Mix B).

The new model includes a stereo Audition bus that allows individual channels to be switched away from the main program bus for off-air monitoring. The telco channel EQ has been replaced with variable high-pass/low-pass filters for control of the telephone caller feed signal, there is a new external monitor input level control, the preamps have been enhanced for lower noise and higher bandwidth, and the stereo inputs have more gain and routing options. Finally, the mixer is finished in matte-effect paint to reduce surface reflections.

Available immediately, the XB-142 retains its existing retail price.
