    Default Xone: 22 Sound Quality and EQs

    Hello all,
    I'm wondering if any of you have experience with the Xone:22. It's Allen&Heath's fairly new entry level mixer. I bought it when switching over to a full analog setup.
    Prior to buying the 22, I was using a Rane TTM 57SL which I really liked for its precise EQing. When I mix, I tend to lead with the hi-hats of tracks. The Rane mixer's "Hi" EQ really made it easy to do this. However this isn't the case with the Xone:22.
    I am new to Xone mixers so I am not sure if I just need to get used to A&H EQs or the precision of the Xone:22's EQs is lacking. The EQs just don't seem that precise. If I just need to adapt to the mixer (I've had it for a month...) then I can work it out, but if it's the 22's lower quality then I'll probably want to switch it out.
    Anyone mind helping me out?
    Thanks!

    I don't think its the quality. A&H make very very good mixers.

    I have the 22 myself.

    I think its just a matter of getting used to it.

    I used to be on the Pioneer range and when I started on A&H, it was tricky.
    Took some getting used to.
