Inward connections Mix690 Vs Dangerous 2 bus Vs Maselec-STM-822

Hello. Inward connections Mix690 Vs Dangerous 2 bus Vs Maselec-STM-822 ........Which one would you guys suggest for doing some pop music? Any one own these and make any comparison? I actually have listened to the samples on vintageking and I really love Inward connections...I just wonder what Dangerous and Prism would sound like....do you have any links or samples?
Thanks

I use a dangerous 2-bus for pop/rock/jazz music. It's very transparent. It doesn't seem to impart any "color" on the mix like I imagine the Inward or Chandler might. But you can tell it's there. I find that it certainly widens the stereo field and increases the depth of the mix. If you listen the same mix through the 2-bus vs. ITB summing, it's often night and day. If that's all you're looking for, you'll love it.

That said, in retrospect, I wish I had demoed a few more summing boxes.

However, if I might add, don't take this as a broad comment about the Dangerous gear in general. The MQ is the best meter I've ever used (the cue mixer sounds great as well) and the Monitor is scary good. And Chris is a super-nice guy.

thanks Adam

Thanks Adam. It is really a tough job to decide which one i should buy. So at least now I know Dangerous 2 bus worth the money at least. on those vintageking testimonials, Robert Carranza said "The 2-BUS sounds so open and yet it's so tight on the bottom." Tight bottom could be good for me.

Who has tried the other two? Please give me some advice...

I got a mix 690 and 2bus. I prefer the 2bus because its more transparent. I like to start with transparent mixer first. Then if I want to add color, and can with a bus comp, or whatever.

They are both great. But 2bus works for me more so. And I love what it does to the mix.

+1 I heard samples of others and agree it was a tough choice to commit. I also do pop/rock - I'm very happy I chose the 2 Bus.
