About Allen & Heath
Heritage, innovation, and a mission to just keep doing it better.
Allen & Heath was in the vanguard of the first wave of great British mixer companies, starting life at the heart of London’s swinging music scene in 1969. In those early days we hand-built mixers for the top bands of the era, including Genesis, Pink Floyd and The Who.
Fast forward to the second decade of the 21st Century and as well as touring with the likes of Lewis Capaldi, Bring Me the Horizon and Billie Eilish, we’re proud that the A&H range is used and loved by gigging bands, rental companies, installers, houses of worship, DJs, clubs, broadcasters and studios across the globe.
Our Best Ever Range
Our current digital console range spans four iconic series, each a class-leader in its own right. The 96kHz dLive pro touring and installation family is founded on a uniquely flexible architecture, underpinned by the mighty XCVI FPGA core. Avantis is the latest 96kHz addition, turning heads with its twin HD touchscreens, super-slick Continuity UI and tough full metal chassis. Our SQ mixers have taken the audio world by storm, bringing full format features and exceptional 96kHz audio performance in a compact footprint. Completing the digital ‘big four’, the Qu series’ peerless ease of use makes it a much-loved industry standard that finds a home wherever the music plays.
In the analogue domain, we carved out our hard-won reputation for bulletproof build quality, rugged reliability and excellent audio quality with the tried and true GL and MixWizard consoles. Today’s ZEDi mini mixers are the direct inheritors of that legacy, offering the premium alternative in an analogue market flooded with forgettable budget desks and interfaces.
Few brands can claim the fanatical devotion inspired by our Xone DJ products. The trailblazing Xone:92 has been the instrument of choice for many of the world’s best DJs since its debut in 2003. Xone:96 is the long-awaited follow-up, taking the legendary soul of the :92 and redelivering it, enhanced, and with state-of-the-art digital connectivity. When it comes to DJ creativity, it’s go Xone or go home.
Allen & Heath has been developing dedicated installation products since the mid-1990s, bringing the brand’s signature audio performance and reliability to environments as diverse as banks, cruise ships, restaurants, hotels, houses of worship and anywhere people gather to communicate and celebrate. 2020 witnessed the arrival of the powerful new AHM-64 installation audio matrix processor, backed by an unrivalled ecosystem of scalable I/O, control and Dante solutions.
