    Default one or the other mixer question

    I know both these mixers have been around a while, been covered a million times, have similar features and are priced similarly. I'm just looking for a a simple black and white answer...which one? Denon DN-X1600 or Allen & Heath Xone:42.

    They're actually quite a bit different in what they do, the Denon does have a lot more features, but for me A&H are the best club mixers.
    Looking at the rest of your setup the Denon might be better as it has a Traktor Scratch Certified sound card already built in.

    They are a similar price range, both sub $1k USD, i haven't used the 42 but i do use the denon and its one hell of a mixer, if you want a great mixer with a veritable shit ton of midi on it (plus scratch certification) i would say go for the denon. a&h do make badass mixers tho. Allen & Heath & Denon is the same company anyway
