DAW volume controller

I would like to find a way to be able to control the volume of my monitors.
Right now i'm coming out of my PT HD into a Mackie VLZ 1202 :-( I looked at the coleman audio but it does not have exactly what i need and the Martinsound or Audient are way too expensive and overcrowded with features i don't want. I need to come out of my PT interface, into some sort of meter then into a volume controller. I would like this unit to be surround ready. Any suggestions ??

A little birdy told me that a rather highly respected company will be coming out with a monitor box at AES that should do most everything you need quite well...

I'm using a nifty Focusrite box right now, but I'm on the long term prowl..

Purple has a stereo-only box in-progress:

I might end up with a custom Crookwood mastering console.

and I can only guess that the eee-vil Mr. Blackwood is taunting us with more Crane Song insider bird-chirping. ... Might be worth waiting for.

Any idea on how much the Purple box will go for? I really like the MC76 btw, very nice.

why not go for a midrange audiophile preamp... many of them have balanced ins and outs. I know bryston (whom many regard as wonderful pro audio amps) makes a balanced in and out preamp/ input selector.

I've used NAD and Rotel, as well as Musical Fidelity and they all perform well, and don't have to cost an arm and a leg, especally the Nad and Rotel

Have you considered the Benchmark DAC-1? It doesn't have meters but it would be a great way to monitor using digital outs.

NHT makes a wonderful 2 channel Passive Volume Control, XLR's and/or 1/4" ins and outs. I know it's not surround ready, but it's still worth a mention..
