Allen & Heath ZED XB-14-2 Compact Radio Broadcast Mixer

14-channel broadcast console with dual Telco inputs, USB I/0 and 4 stereo inputs with logic start
MFR# AH-XB2-14

Product Description

The Allen & Heath ZED XB-14-2 Compact Radio Broadcast Mixer offers a host of specialized broadcast features that normally come at a much higher price, including telephone communication (telco) channels, mic channel ON switch sensing, stereo channel start/cue outputs for playback device control, automatic muting of speaker outputs and much more.

XB-142 incorporates new features and styling based on feedback from the many broadcasters who have built their operations around the original XB-14. With a wealth of routing options, dual stereo channels for up to 7 stereo sources, and the addition of a dedicated Audition bus, enhanced microphone preamps and stereo channel gain range, XB-142 satisfies the demands of small radio and internet broadcasters as well as larger studios with multiple rooms. With no less than 27 logic I/O for remote control and 15 configuration switches, XB-142 is a highly flexible solution.

SELF/PRODUCER OPERATED

Whether you need a mixer for a self-operated broadcast situation, or whether you have a separate studio and engineer, the XB series has features to fit. Separate monitor mixes can be created for operator and guests or presenter, so the engineer can check levels and cue sources while the presenter or guest can listen to a different source. The engineer/producer can communicate to the guest or presenter using the Talk feature, as well as speaking off-air with telephone callers. There is also the facility for remote control of channel mutes from the studio using the remote interface connectors – ideal for studio situated mute or ‘cough’ switches.

DUOPRE PREAMPS

The XB-142 pre-amps use a two stage design, with carefully controlled amounts of gain in each stage. When amplifying the signal from the XLR input, the gain range is huge (69dB of range to be exact) and is very evenly distributed around the gain control, meaning better control of signal level. There is no “pad” switch, or pad circuit — line level signals are simply plugged into the second stage of the pre-amp by using the line input jack socket. This has the great advantage of lower noise when using the line input.

USB

XB-142 comes with a full duplex USB soundcard built-in and many useful routing options for recording and broadcast applications.

AUDITION BUS

The dedicated stereo audition bus can be used for auditioning or off air recording. Pressing the button marked AUD on the channels required transfers the mix from the program feed over to the audition bus.

TELCO

The two Telco channels provide a selectable clean-feed output (LR PGM, Aux or Audition bus), variable high pass and low pass filters to reduce the frequency range of the channel when used with a telephone caller, and TALK button.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
