Thanks Burns! I think the Merging Tech is a bit more than what I need but I will still appreciate the recommendation. I think the Hilo is really intriguing. Love the Lynx stuff but the DA3000 may fit into my racks better.

I was wondering if anyone ever sends L/R out through a monitor controller? I was messing around with my Dangerous Monitor ST the other day and I thought "Wouldn't it be great if there was a buffered/balanced pass through for running L/R through the controller then straight to whatever 2 track you were using."
