    Default Ecler Evo 5 Vs. Allen&Heath DB4. What should i buy?

    Hi ! I have a big problem. I gonna buy a new mixer but dont really know what to choose. Its stands between Ecler Evo 5 and Allen&Heat Xone DB4. I had my mind set on Ecler Evo 5. But then i get to hear rumours like they dont update the firmware and tha latest is that they are dumping the dj division.

    The issues i have with Allen&Heat is the pricetag (not a big issue... just need to save money couple of weeks longer) and that it is USB and not firewire like the Ecler. I gonna use the mixer with a Macbook Pro and would be nice to have all USB port open for other things.

    Please tell me all the pros and cons between theese two mixers.
    I appreciate all help and ideas i can get.

    I would go for the DB4 because of the sound quality and the fx matrix,
    about the pro and cons, you answered your own question really.


    The next thing on my shopping list is a DB4,
    The Evo 5 has never crossed my mind

    The DB4 is loooooovely - I got a chance to play with a review unit - the Midi mapping sits so comfortably with the rest of the mixer and the effects and loops are brilliant.

    I love how this thread start with "I have a big problem" and then continues talking about mixer A of 2.000 and mixer B of 2.000.

    I'm jealous too but I loooove the Ecler Evo 5 and it plays so nicely with Traktor.

    I'm stupid though; I first bought the Denon DNX1700 and played with it a few days then I saw a great deal on the Evo 5 so I jumped on it. So now I'm trying to sell the Denon and I know I eventually will, but for the money I put down I could have had the DB4 I wanted all along. Ahhh well... the Evo 5 is something else though; and if you like to scratch at all the stock faders are absolutely lovely. The effects layout is pretty cool too -- it's really fun having a crossfader for wet/dry. But the looper on the DB4 (not to mention the easy access to filters and the incredible array of effect options) puts the Evo5 to shame. If I could do it all again I would have just bought the DB4 in the first place.
