So it's not just a case of only two people talking, because the above scenarios cover that most of the time.
So if the price is right on the hardware, go for it, otherwise it's worth considering the plugin. I have both a DNS 2000 and the DNS One.

I understand your layout; I also use checker boarded dialog in boom/lav pairs (or more)...and I can see using more than a couple instances in your case.
I'm just trying to make the point that it is not that difficult (or slow even) to incorporate routing that has only 2 mono or one stereo instance of DNS via the hardware. It's easily accomplished through routing and changing your approach a little. But I seem to be talking to myself.
I find that DNS is not enough for things that are really bad and in those cases that require noise printing/learning , I use iZotope or XNoise or whatever - offline.

Maybe I should join the chorus of people who prefer the software because that only makes the hardware cheaper

You would have to be a dumba$$ to buy Cedar Hardware!
