Allen & Heath XB-10
Compact broadcast mixer
The compact XB-10 is for small radio or Internet broadcast studios, college and university radio stations, podcasting, content creation and more. Radio-friendly tools include a telephone communication (telco) channel, mic channel on switch sensing, stereo channel start/cue outputs for CD deck transport control and automatic muting of speaker outputs. A separate monitor mix can be created for operator and guest or presenter, and the operator can speak off-air to the studio or telephone callers using the talk feature. XB-10's preamps use low-noise discrete transistor circuitry to achieve high gain and linearity. Each mic channel comes equipped with a CompACT compressor to keep the dynamic range of a presenter microphone under control. A variable limiter on the main output ensures that the final mix to air does not saturate expensive broadcast equipment. The plug-n-play USB connection can be used for VoIP telephone calls, recording program material, playing jingles and more.
