96kHz XCVI Core
SQ is a future-proofed, next-generation console, powered by Allen & Heath’s 96kHz XCVI FPGA engine. XCVI delivers class-leading high resolution audio quality, ultra-low latency of <0.7ms, variable bit depth for ultimate precision and noise performance, mix coherency down to the sample, and the sheer power to handle high channel / mix counts and ample FX / processing.

DEEP processing ready
SQ’s DEEP processing architecture allows owners to hand-pick boutique compressor and preamp emulations to suit their style and needs. DEEP plugins can be embedded directly within the mixer’s inputs and mix channels, all without adding system latency or setup hassles.

The Ultimate IEM Mixer
With no less than 12 stereo mixes and super-low latency, and both parametric and graphic EQ on every mix, SQ is the perfect companion for in-ear monitoring setups. SQ’s airline-friendly compactness and rugged build quality mean there’s no reason to gamble on house monitor consoles again.

Expandable up to 48 mics
SQ-6 has all the onboard I/O you need for standalone operation. Thanks to its SLink intelligent port, SQ can also be expanded up to a total of 48 mic inputs via a family of 96kHz and 48kHz rack and stage box expanders (e.g. AB168, AR2412, AR84 and DX168), making it a flexible, mix ‘n’ match solution for owners of other Allen & Heath digital systems. You can also link your SQ directly to another SQ or even a dLive system.

Dante, Waves and more
SQ is the centrepiece of a growing ecosystem of apps, expanders, audio networking, personal mixers and more, allowing you to connect, adapt and expand to your heart’s content. It’s compatible with leading audio networking standards too - add an audio networking card such as Dante or Waves to SQ’s I/O port and you’re ready to integrate with installed systems, provide a digital FoH / Monitor split and more.

Flexible multitrack recording
The integrated SQ-Drive makes it quick and easy to capture a 96kHz multitrack or stereo recording of the show direct to a USB key or drive. No software setup, no soundcard driver issues and no extra laptop to bring to the performance. SQ-Drive is also a smart way to manage walk-in music. Also provided is a built-in 32x32 96kHz audio interface for multitrack recording, backing tracks or virtual soundcheck applications. The interface is Core Audio and ASIO compliant and comes complete with MIDI and DAW control capabilities.

Advanced AMM *
SQ’s advanced automatic mic mixer (AMM) features make it ideally suited to mixing conferences, panel talks and TV shows. It’s fully integrated in the mixer too, with no extra latency, so you don’t need to route the audio to an internal DSP rack.

Best console I've owned

What is your opinion of this product?
I have the SQ-6 as well as the SQ-5. Buying both of these was the best purchase I've ever made in the past 40 years of mixing. I do Corporate hotel events as well as live video on-site broadcasts for corporations. Been using Allen and Heath desk's for the past 15 years and the SQ series ROCKS!! I would recommend the SQ series to everyone who is looking to switch from analog to digital.

Powerful and User Friendly
What is your opinion of this product?
I purchased the A&H SQ6 to be installed in a major church sound system upgrade. The SQ6 was selected for the features as well as the ease of operation considering we have a number of volunteers involved in the AV work at the church. Installation was a breeze with minor reference to the online manual. I have used a number of digital consoles by Behringer (X32 & XR series), Midas (M32), Presonus and Yamaha (TF & QL) so I'm knew my way around the setup process. The big surprise came when our volunteers picked up almost immediately on the layout and operation of the board after many years spent on an analog Peavey console! I've recently moved from a Presonus Digital rig to the SQ6 for my personal live console and have been very, very happy! Great board with many versatile features. A+++++

Worth Every Penny to Upgrade From Qu
What is your opinion of this product?
Coming from a Qu-32, this new mixer addressed nearly every small shortcoming and feature I had wished the Qu had. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVED my Qu-32, but as is always the case, I had a few small nit-pickings that simply weren't possible to be addressed with the hardware contained in the Qu. The first is the ability to fully patch any input and output to anywhere, either physically on the board or on a remote stage box, AND you can split signal to send it to more than one location with this board! The second is the scribble strips; no more magnets on the board! The third is 8 effects engines (over the 4 that the Qu had). This means I can now have four effects on returns that may be used across a number of channels, and still have 4 dedicated as inserts as specialty effects for a specific channel. The fourth is really huge: the ability to patch in OUTBOARD GEAR as an insert!! Amazing board; just get one!
