    Default Why was the Xone 92 Rotary discontinued?

    It's been a while since the last loads of 92-R have left the factory. Any ideas why this model was discontinued despite the rising popularity of rotary units?

    Because they weren't selling all that well and missed the current rotary popularity surge.

    Well that and the placement of the rotary volume knobs. It was literally just a xone 92 with rotary volume knobs. If they would have spaced the EQ knobs out and put larger knob caps on to match, the mixer would have had a stronger foothold.
