Xone k2 overview
sagius91, 08.05.2017
The Xone k2 has a very good built quality as you expect from Allen & Heath. It is very portable and comes with its own case. The K2 has 3 latching layers which means 3 banks that you can use for your personalized mappings. You can easily configure it's midi channel and which buttons/ knobs can be affected by the latching layers. You can connect multiple k2's with each other via Xlink or connect a k2 with an other xone mixer that has xlink, which is a big plus if you have few usb's on your laptop.

The only think that I don't like is the built in sound card due to it's driver and also it doesn't have a good latency. If you have a xone 23C, 43C, DB2, DB4,PX5 this should not effect you but if you use any other mixer then I recommend to purchase an external soundcard.

Overall all I am satisfied with this controller, I recommend this controller for those persons that like to create their personal mappings. Also it suites very well with traktor or abelton.

Controller for those who know what they want
05.08.2014
I purchased two K2 and I'm very impressed with them. The configuration option are extremely versatile. For a DJ or producers who loves to tinker and have a custom setup made exactly for YOU, this device is exactly what you need.

I love the fact that you can link two K2s together with a LAN-cable, so you don't use one of those precious USB-ports (especially on a Mac) and the fact you don't need drivers (assuming you have a Mac). I owned the previous model (the 1D) which had some glitches, but so far the K2 has performed really good.

The audio interface is not super hi-fi, but it's perfectly adequate. My only complaint is rather cosmetic. It's handy that the K2 is so slim, but it looks funny next to a DJ mixer. The included hard case (which is good too, btw) acts as a riser, but it's more for gigs and not very elegant for studio.

Exactly what one should expect
Kostas Seremetis, 19.04.2017
Given the nature of midi controllers who can argue they 're all about control? Yes, exactly what I 've bargained for, XONE:K2 is what I needed.

Handling/ Quality:
First of all it has a great feel on the chassis, nice knob feel, nothing seems or feels "plastic" and/or low quality material here. Allen & Heath done a great job introducing this line of product.

Features:
Use it anyway you like! Really. As a DJ-ing mixer or an Ableton Controller it feels -and behaves- as one should expect it to: Just great! Lots of options! The fact is that all of it 's buttons and knobs can be assigned to any given known and used midi command in the book. Very helpful and diverse. Nothing seems to be put on it by chance, everything serves a purpose and that is it 's grand advantage.

Sound:
Not much to be said of sound on midi controllers, yet, you can expect it to behave just great even when you got 2 sets of hands playing over it. (Yes it is true, we really had two sets of hands messing with it simultaneously so...

OVERALL:
It is perfect

Love It!
Toutsi, 26.04.2017
Really great if you're comfortable MIDI mapping yourself. Still great with user submitted MIDI maps. I would give it 5 stars if it had a dedicated hardware volume control and a power switch, It is slightly larger than I thought it would be - quite long. The build quality is good, a bit light overall but the control surface is top notch. Sound quality is great, much better than some 24bit/96khz cards I've used

Turntables and mixers are not just playback devices, but important tools for any DJ. So that DJs equipped with only a laptop are spared juggling with their mouse, DJ controllers have been developed that convert analogue feeling into the digital setup.

DJing has rather murky origins, and there are many people who claim to have been the first to mix two records together.
