The Xone:S6 has been introduced to make the sonic purity and top-class performance of the XONE:V6 accessible to a wider audience. Built with exactly the same components as the V6 it boasts all the same features, with the exception of the valve preamps, which only the XONE:V^ has available.
Input Channels, 6 dual stereo channels with switchable sources [RCA]. CH1-4 are RIAA / Line, CH5-6 are Line / Line [RIAA inputs can be internally configured to line level if desired]. A rotary gain trim control knob is located in the meter housing on each channel - internal options for 0 /+6 / +10 dBu matching
Microphone input, high quality mic input. Metal shrouded balanced XLR connector on rear panel. Phantom power can be internally selected. A level control and 2 band EQ [120Hz / 2.5kHz] are on the front panel. A toggle switch selects mic on [when off, mic can be cued in headphone monitor]. Rear panel switch routes the mic to the booth output if needed. An insert point [TRS] jack is provided for external processing
EQ, a large rotary control for high pass filter is provided on each channel, which sweeps from 30Hz to 600Hz - this is usually the only EQ needed as low end program can be filtered out as channels are mixed, thus preventing phasing and overload. The filter can be switched out using the hi-pass toggle switch. Insert points on each channel [rear - RCA] provide external processing access
Intelligent cue system. Large chromed push buttons on each channel - illuminated by blue LED. Single push operation and auto-cancelling. Headphone monitoring incorporates a ‘mix/cue’ preview control, headphone level, and bass-cut / HF-lift tone control. Front and rear headphone jacks are provided
Rotary Faders, Precision Penny & Giles conductive plastic rotary controls are provided to mix the level on each channel
Insert, Stereo Insert points [RCA] for each channel provide access to use external processing such as FX or EQ. Possible future options for V6 may interconnect here
Master Out, Rotary control for level. 2 band EQ providing +/- 6dB @ 80Hz and 10kHz. Balanced XLR outputs [+4dBu]. Insert points [TRS] & additional [TRS] jack -2dBu outputs and recording [RCA, -10dBV] outputs are also provided. Twin 1950s design illuminated VU meters provide accurate output level monitoring
Booth Monitor, Output is balanced XLR at +4dBu. With level control, and 2 band EQ providing +/-6dB @ 100Hz and 10kHz
