Xena Connector Types


There are several Connectors: Mic XLR , 1/4 inch line

XLR Mic Input
1/4 inch Line Input
Input Gain

Channel Inputs

The Xena mixer offers 2 mono and 2 stereo channels. Using the stereo channels as 2 mono inputs, it’s possible to achieve 6 channels of audio. The stereo knob would then be controlling the 2 mono input levels simultaneously.

  • Mono channels have option of an XLR mic input or 1/4 inch line input (selected indicated in green)
  • Stereo channels only use 1/4 inch line inputs

Input Gain Behavior

The input is only located on channels with XLR inputs. The behavior of the input gain knob is dependent on the input connector type selected (indicated in green). Mic signals are much quieter than line signals and therefore an extra boost. The mic input contains a “pre-amplifier” that is capable to raise the signal to accordingly and without introducing electrical noise. The line input has less boosting capability.

Stereo Returns
