    There both good just be aware that the channel faders on the Allen & Heath 62 only have about 3 lights to indicate there volume. This is a little shit.
    My advice is to get the Pioneers or the Xone 92.

    Thanks for the help , my mate has a Xone:62 that I use quite alot and I really like it but all the knobs/faders just feel a bit cheap and plasticy for such an expensive mixer. The channel faders/Crossfader have all broke at one time or another as well. Probably go for the pioneer still but might have to have at look at this Mackie. Iv never used one before , what are they like?

    Looks like a really good mixer , quite pricey tho. Probably stick with the Pioneer but thanks for the help.
