I believe the compressors and routing are entirely Daking made, design wise speaking.

Do a search here on GS, here's GS member Skip Burrows writing a review:
The DAKING MKII Review: By Skip Burrows

Here's their website, if you scroll down you find a lot of youtube videos where they explain everything in details:

I'm not related with this company, but it's probably where I'd put my money if I had that kind of $$ and mixing (and/or tracking) needs.
This is very cleverly designed and a lot of the old daking vertical modules are praised more than the neve counterpart by a lot of talented and successful engineers fwiw.

I hope this helps,

I visited Daking's website, so the console is great but if it's at a similar price I do prefeare an old SSL 4000g with automation and PSU replacement and some Neve channels strips.
In any case thank you for your contribution.
