The STM-822 is an excellent, really clean summing mixer and does it very well with some useful features. It also happens to be mostly unknown as it isn't even on the Maselec website! As with all purchases like this, it would be great if you can try it first. However if you are after a clean summing mixer and are NOT looking for colour then I highly recommend it.

It's been several years since the last post on this thread, but for anyone looking for this comparison, the answer is Yes. Fuseroom did a very nice shootout and included both of these units. http://www.fuseroom.com/summingshootout.
You'll have a much more accurate comparison if you download the files and level match them in your DAW (i used Waves WLM for this), and do a blind comparison.
Doing a blind comparison, the STM822 was my favorite on the Jazz piece. It seems to impart a really pleasant, high energy across the whole mix and just feels finished to me. Also, listen for crack of the snare...it's crisp, but also sits nicely in the soundstage. The STM822 was my 3rd fav on the Country Rock song. The Nickel and Iron settings on the Equinox managed those frequencies most comprehensively to my ears.
