Calrec still around?
I don't know how this slipped by me, as I'm normally pretty up on this sort of shit, but apparently Calrec is still in business. Or at least, someone owns the name and is making consoles. They are definitely slated to the broadcast (tv/radio) industry, but a console is a console when you get down to it. Of particular interest to readers here is the M3, pictured above. It looks like you can buy a boat and fill it with however many channels you need.
Here's the page. The interesting thing to note is that while the recording industry usually eschews cleanliness in favor of mic pres and eqs that have a bit of color, the broadcast industry wants the cleanest of clean, so that might inform your reading of the provided material. But taking that in to consideration, this is an interesting item. The C2 is also worth a look, particularly for the upstand modules (comp, limiter, etc.).
