    Why don't you try them both and decide for yourself?

    no, i have played on both though n i have a xone 92. i've played on all xones and the filters are made for dnb. they jus do all 3 or 4 eq's (depends on model) in one button. i dont use effects and dont think u need to with dnb and thats what the pioneer has which i think is more useful for house and other genres. both are wicked mixers but if u want something that is built like a tank, has the best sound quality then xone anytime. if ur after effects then pioneer. xone ftw!

    I'm gonna go with the xone 42 aswell, the fact that it's about 100 pound cheaper helped close the deal really. The cheapest I can find one for is about 650. Anyone know of a site which is selling them cheaper??

    I had a go on an xone 42 and I thought it was pretty solid.
    I haven't tried the Pioneer though.

    DJM by far mate....

    the only Xone i like is the top end one... all the other are just pants.... DJM's feel like they've been built in a Iron Mongers... PURE QUALITY!!!

    Vestax PDX 2000 pros... and DJM 800..... BEST COMBINATION ON THE MARKET!!! NO NEED FOR DISCUSSION!!

    IMO - Technics Mk5 g's + Zone 92 are the best combo in the market love mixing on them its like butter all around!

    I own Xone 62 and tried a Pioneer (more of an after thought thou...I was never gonna get it). My matie has one from the DJM range and it a good all round mixer, but I'd never swap it for my Xone.

    The entire A&H range has amazing build quality, amazing sound quality and control. You can add effects units if you feel you really need them. I'm not sure about the pioneers but the Xone series all have hardcases available, made to measure.As I bought both mixer and case at the same time from the sameplace I was even able to haggle a discount.
