Allen & Heath XB10
10 Channel Compact Broadcast Mixer Console

OUR PART #  XB10


The Allen & Heath XB-10 is perfect for small radio or internet broadcast studios, college and university radio stations, podcasting, content creation and more.

Despite its tiny footprint, XB-10 is packed with the kinds of specialised broadcast features that normally come at a much higher price. 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 excellent linearity. Each mic channel comes equipped with our innovative 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.

Allen & Heath XB-10 Features:

  • USB : XB-10 comes with a full duplex USB soundcard built in and many useful routing options for recording and broadcast applications.
  • MusiQ: XB-10 features a responsive 3-band, swept mid-frequency EQ design which utilises MusiQ with optimized slope for a variety of sources.
  • Output Limiter: A variable limiter ensures the level does not exceed a pre-defined level. Back panel option switches allow the limiter to be bypassed. A trim pot is used to vary the threshold and an LED on the front panel indicates when the limiter has triggered.
  • CompACT Compressor: XB-10 features the ComPACT compressor on each of its mic channels. CompACT (Adaptive Compression Technology) is a program-dependent audio leveller. Unlike other compressors, which are effective only at reducing loud sounds, CompACT combines both downward and upward compression with peak limiting. Low level signals aregiven a gain boost, mid level signals are mildly compressed with a soft knee response, and high level signals are limited.
  • 3 mic/line and 3 stereo inputs
  • Telco channel with optional USB routing for VoIP
  • CompACT compressors on mic channels
  • ON switch logic on mic and telco channels
  • Start/cue logic outputs on stereo channels
