2 buss all-in-one units?

I am changing up some gear in my studio, and was wondering if there are any killer 2 buss all-in-one units that I don't know about. The RND Portico Master Buss Processor is one example. Ideally, something that has compression/eq/tape emulation or coloration. Main uses would be to run stereo acoustic guitars through, electric guitars, stereo mix, etc.

It doesn't have quite everything you mention but the Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor is a very flexible beast.

I would definitely consider two Portico Channels as an option, EQ, vca compressor with side chain and stereo-linkable and two Neve-"silk" options.
They are Great on the 2bus

I have the Neve MBP and it's a versatile and feature rich box. I really like the Stereo Field Editor. I wouldn't say that offers any tape emulation, however.

if you can find a Box that has M/S processing that would be a nice bonus !!!

A 747 or a pair of Retro Powerstrips would be a great option. 747 would be cheaper, Powerstrips could be used for tracking as well. Both are a win.
