Looks too simple to sound this good!
Before I heard this X-Desk , I imagined this mixer to sound slightly better than a Mackie considering the size and the simplistic interface with fewer knobs than most mini mixer.
I own a Dangerous D Box and I recently bought a Coleman M3PH for managing my routing my sources and 3 sets of monitor speakers. I say the X-Desk blows the Coleman off the planet and sounds deeper and clearer than the D Box. I managed to make my Apogee DA16X sound at least 30% better.
As a summing mixer, this is superior to the TL Audio Ebony Summer and even the D Box. It is clean, warm and deep. I never imagined my Focal Twin B6 and Adam S3X V to go that deep. It is very addictive to listen to. I ended up routing every into it which means I have to buy a few more Monster DB25 to TRS snakes.
After hearing how good super analogue sounds, I am saving up for the next level - Matrix.
