Allen & Heath is a leading designer and manufacturer of mixing desks for live sound, permanent installation, DJs, broadcast, and recording studios.
From bedrooms to boardrooms, houses of worship to iconic festivals, Allen & Heath has set the tone of audio technology for over 50 years.
Allen & Heath was in the vanguard of the first wave of great British mixer companies, starting life at the heart of London’s swinging music scene in 1969. In those early days, it hand-built mixers for the top bands of the era, including Genesis, Pink Floyd, and The Who.
Fast-forward to the second decade of the 21st century and touring with the likes of Lewis Capaldi, Bring Me the Horizon and Billie Eilish, it is proud that the A&H range is used and loved by gigging bands, rental companies, installers, houses of worship, DJs, clubs, broadcasters, and studios across the globe.
Allen & Heath’s current digital console range spans four iconic series, each a class-leader in its own right. The 96kHz dLive pro touring and installation family is founded on a uniquely flexible architecture, underpinned by the mighty XCVI FPGA core. Avantis is the latest 96kHz addition, turning heads with its twin HD touchscreens, super-slick Continuity UI, and tough full metal chassis. Its SQ mixers have taken the audio world by storm, bringing full format features and exceptional 96kHz audio performance in a compact footprint. Completing the digital "big four," the Qu series’ peerless ease of use makes it a much-loved industry standard that finds a home wherever the music plays.
In the analog domain, Allen & Heath carved out its hard-won reputation for bulletproof build quality, rugged reliability, and excellent audio quality with the tried-and-true GL and MixWizard consoles. Today’s ZEDi mini mixers are the direct inheritors of that legacy, offering the premium alternative in an analog market flooded with forgettable budget desks and interfaces.
Few brands can claim the fanatical devotion inspired by Allen & Heath’s Xone DJ products. The trailblazing Xone:92 has been the instrument of choice for many of the world’s best DJs since its debut in 2003. Xone:96 is the long-awaited follow-up, taking the legendary soul of the :92 and redelivering it, enhanced, and with state-of-the-art digital connectivity. When it comes to DJ creativity, it’s go Xone or go home.
Allen & Heath has been developing dedicated installation products since the mid-1990s, bringing the brand’s signature audio performance and reliability to environments as diverse as banks, cruise ships, restaurants, hotels, houses of worship, and anywhere people gather to communicate and celebrate. 2020 witnessed the arrival of the powerful new AHM-64 installation audio matrix processor, backed by an unrivalled ecosystem of scalable I/O, control, and Dante solutions.
