    If you're DJ'ing digitally then get the PX5. And would you even be using 6 channels if you got the 92?

    Retired: Denon x1700, Denon SC3900's, Traktor, Technics SL1200's, my vinyl
    Wish list: Some Roland Aira stuff.

    I have the PX5 and I LOVE it!
    It's an EXTREMELY underrated mixer!

    I wish we had a digital version of the 92 (updated). I absolutely love the feel and layout of the mixer.

    I was watching SpinnZinn do an AMA of the PX5 a few months back where he let slip a little morsel of info about how the PX5 was the "first" in a new lineup of Xone mixers w' the Analog/Digital dynamic. So, who knows, there may be an updated 92-esque Analog Mixer w' Digital EFX & Routing (soundcard) mixer yet to come. As much as I love my PX5, I would LOVE to see a hybrid of it and the 92. That would be the ultimate mixer, IMO.

    I have both mixers, and as much as the 92 and my RME FireFace UC are my favourite combination from a sound quality point of view, the PX5 is what I will take to gigs where I need to take a mixer due to the simplicity of setup, but still keeping with my very high sound quality expectation. Most of the clubs I play in though have DJM’s, and i considered getting the DJM-750mk2 instead of the PX5 but I’m glad I went with the PX5, it sounds so much better.

    Also, the PX5 is the only mixer that I’ve used with integrated soundcard that gives you similar gain structure with Traktor that you get with CDJ’s using USB stick. You can swap between software and hardware sources and not have to bump up the gain by 30% for software like you need to on DJM’s.

    Plenty of studio gear and not enough time ... and a few Nexo PA systems

    So, it appears I was right.
