    Default Why Pioneer before Allen & Heath?

    Hi,

    Does anyone here prefer Pioneer before Allen & Heath mixers (you have to tried booth to have a valid opinion) effects aside?

    I have big problems to understand why, as I think Allen & Heath is superior the pioneer.

    You could start by saying why you think Allen and Heath is superior.

    I think after you spend more than 500 bucks on a mixer it all becomes personal preference...

    I had a Xone 22. Loved it. Sold it. I now have a DJM 250. Loving it.

    Both of them are pretty great as mixers, but the "preference" for either kinda depends on what a given workflow/install really needs, and what model of mixer you're looking at. No professional brand or model is necessarily better than another, its all about the context.

    The UK made Allen & Heath mixers of "yesteryear" were superior, IMO, to anything that Pioneer was putting out but that was "then". Pioneer mixers tend to be more "Industry Standard" and their newest models are quite good. It kinda comes down to personal preference when you're comparing higher $$$$ models of each.

    I always felt pioneer has a colder sound which isn't bad but my preference is toward older a&h models like the 464...*drool.
