InfoComm: Allen & Heath launches the Qu-32

At this year’s InfoComm show in Las Vegas Allen & Heath is unveiling the latest addition to its Qu series of digital mixers, the Qu-32.

The Qu-32 is a 32 fader, 38-in/28-out digital mixer that shares the key Qu series features such as total recall of settings (including faders and digitally controlled preamps), Qu-Drive integrated multi-track recorder, dSNAKE for remote I/O and personal monitoring, multi-channel USB streaming, Qu-Pad control app, and the iLive FX Library to deliver class-leading audio quality.

The new mixer also comes with a larger, 7in touchscreen and 33 motorised faders.

Key to the design was providing a dedicated fader per mic input channel while retaining a compact footprint, the Qu series distinctive styling, and extensive I/O, comprising 32 mic/line inputs, three stereo inputs, 24 mix outputs including two Stereo Matrix Mix Outputs and four Stereo Groups with full processing, patchable AES digital output with a further two-channel ALT output, dedicated Talkback mic pre input, and two-Track output.

“Packed full of features and retaining a dedicated fader per mic channel, the larger Qu-32 complements the rest of the Qu family. The comprehensive array of features, such as copy and paste, soft keys, RTA and PFL options make using and setting up the Qu console easy and flexible,” comments Allen & Heath MD, Glenn Rogers. “The Qu-16 and Qu-24 have been welcomed with great enthusiasm by customers from PA companies to churches, and we look forward to more success with the new addition.”

The Qu-32 is set to start shipping next month at a SRP of £2599 ex VAT.
