These ones were made for the domestic rather than the studio market,
but the design is essentially the same:
> Is the studio in the house?
Currently its about 18 miles away, but I might convert a building in
the garden for recording purposes. Do you know what the limitations
on the length of S/PDIF cables are?

Yes, it has eight in/out jacks plus S/PDIF.
> A good preamp is a fine example of bang for the buck.
Absolutely - there are some very cheap mixers around now, but I do
wonder about the quality of their analogue engineering. Personally,
I'm very satisfied with the analogue stuff we have now, and I know
the limitations are in my lack of skill, not the equipment.

I will - it's all an experiment as far as I'm concerned. I've found I
learn the most that way.
