The Sound of Speed- Allen & Heath’s SQ Digital Mixers!

We are huge fans of Allen and Heath’s dLive system; we love its intuitive workflow and powerful features. It would be our system of choice for most of the church installs we do, but its price point can be prohibitive based on budget. The smallest dLive has a MSRP of $8,499.00. That is why we were super excited to be part of the launch of the SQ Series of Digital Mixers!

The SQ Series features deep processing power in a compact, but beautiful console! It boasts a new advanced 96kHz FPGA XCVI core, for delivering pristine, high resolution audio with class-leading latency of <0.7ms. Remote mixing has become an expected feature for the convince of quick monitor mixing, and being able to have control from different listening positions within your venue. The SQ Series features a free app for remote mixing on Android and iOS, perfect for iPad Pros!


The SQ-5 or 6 can also be expanded over Cat5 to compatible audio racks for expanding your system! It is also compatible with the ME Personal Mixing System, for giving musicians control of their monitor mix.
