I did some research, and Neve 5059 Satellite 16x2 + 2 seems as an excellent choice, but is bloody expensive. I was able to test Dangerous Music D-box, which is active as well, and to my surprise I didn't hear any colour at all. It is transparent and clean, but gives me approximetely the same results as your passive LittleOne 8. Thanks Paul!

Thanks man! I bought an ADA8200 and decided to use the analog outs on it for more channels. All I can can is this things blows my DIYRE SB/2 out of the water. It isn’t even close! Easily the best investment I’ve made for my setup. You are a master at what you do and I admire that.

Hey Paul! Managed to achieve that "gentle analog distortion" as you said, the key factor is the gain staging. Simply by a higher volume should go to the inputs. It's very easy, just boost up your DAW output Level (master fader) – and you get some “nice” distortion because you’re pushing the summing mixer inputs quite a bit over its nominal level. Thanks!

Customer question about summing reduction

1. Not entirely sure what this means, this is a total output reduction? 

Answer:
As all summing boxes have to have reduction by resistor network for proper analog signal mixing summing. 
*the reduction provides HEADROOM – safe zone for transients, loud sounds without clipping
 
The resistor value determines the dB reduction relative to 0dB per channel.
The -6.5dB is the minimum reduction which can handle almost enough headroom (safe zone) for summing purposes.
*6.5dB reduction is relative to 1 channel input.
If you send near 0dB to 6 channels the total output reduction will be approx -1- 2dB  (here come the -10dB Pad for safety purposes)

simple physics, the bigger the input signal, the bigger the main output signal

 

2. What do you recommend for my tracking drums (and maybe other instruments) to tape?

 
Answer:
 If the output signal from the DAW output /preamps/eqs/compressors it exceeds 0dB in the summing inputs:
1. this will give some nice real analog harmonic distortion (that’s the plan beside of the analog mixing)
2. you may need additional -10dB reduction, luckily that you have by the PAD switch
 
So the Basic -6.5dB (+) -10dB PAD switch will be suitable for a low reduction passive analog summation. 
Theoretically you have a -6.5dB sum bus reduction (if you send near 0dB signal to summing) the (-6.5dB) reduction will be almost loaded, and here comes the PAD that will give you a larger playground for different gain stages.
if the output signal is too much = PAD switch ON
if the output signal is low = PAD switch OFF + turn up the DAW output / preamps/eqs/compressor volumes + turn up the DAW mic preamp inputs
