  • 1Description

The XB-10 by Allen & Heath is a compact broadcast mixer designed for self-operated broadcast applications in small radio and internet studios, as well as larger facilities with multiple rooms.

It offers a host of features such as a telephone-communication (Telco) channel, ON switch logic for automatic muting of speaker outputs, start/cue outputs for CD deck-transport control, separate headphone mix & output for guests, built-in mic compressors, output limiter, and more.

The XB-10 audio circuitry employs three mic/line channels equipped with high-gain preamps, 3-band EQs to help cut sibilance & lower popping noise, and 2-band EQs for use with music. Each mic pre is equipped with a compressor, and a limiter on the main output ensures that the final mix does not exceed predetermined level.

The full-duplex USB sound card offers playback and record to & from a computer as well as voice over IP (VoIP), and it's compliant with Mac & Windows core audio drivers.

  • Three mic/line mono channels
  • Three stereo channels
  • Telco channel with optional USB routing for VoIP
  • Aux / Alt bus for external processing, recording or auditioning
  • Separate headphones mix and outputs for operator and guest
  • Auto mutes on control-room outputs
  • ON switch logic on mic and Telco channels
  • Start/cue logic outputs on stereo channels
  • Talk button for off-air conversation with guests
  • Input signal and peak metering
  • Ground-cancel switches on RCA outputs
CompACT compressor
Each mic channel has its own compressor to even out the microphone's dynamics. Low-level signals are boosted, mid-level signals are mildly compressed with a soft-knee response, and high-level signals are limited. This automatic compression is activated with a switch, and an LED indicates when compression occurs.
Output Limiter
The main output on the XB-10 is equipped with a variable limiter to ensure that the final mix to air does not exceed a pre-defined level. The limiter can be selected or bypassed with a switch located on the back panel.
MusiQ EQ
The XB-10 is equipped with a 3-band equalizer circuit on each mono input and a 2-band EQ on the Telco & stereo channels. The frequency and response of each EQ is optimized for a wide variety of sound sources.
The stereo bi-directional sound card offers playback and recording to and from a computer. The Telco channel can be used directly from the USB connection, and callers can be accessed via Skype or similar VOIP applications. The USB 1.1 audio codec is compliant with USB 2.0 ports and Windows & Mac core audio drivers.
The dedicated Telco input channel features a selectable clean-feed output (LR PGM or Aux), a 100 Hz HPF, and a 2-band shelf EQ. The Talk button allows for off-air conversation with the caller.
Remote Control
The XB-10 has a 25-way D connector on its rear panel to allow for a number of extra functions. The mic and Telco channels have ON switch logic used to remotely control external equipment. They can also be remotely muted from studio-located mute or cough switches (available separately). The stereo channels have start and cue logic outputs used to operate external equipment such as CD players.
Robust Construction
The XB-10 features individual vertically mounted channel circuit boards with rotary controls fixed to the front panel using metal nuts. This robust construction allows for removing channels from the mixer one at a time and for easily changing faders, making servicing minimally disruptive.
