Summing and monitoring 2 small (high end) consoles

i have to small Studer consoles (10 and 15 channels respectively ) which id like to summ into a small high quality summing box (insted of suming into each other like im doing now)
im looking for a box that can alow me to control 2 pair of monitors and summ the 2 desks as well ..

is there anything out there or can someone tell me whats the best or a good way to summ to different mixers keeping the quality of sound faithful to the consoles and also being able to control monitors..

(each mixer has only 2 stereo outs )

im thinking on the Dangerous D box..would this be ok for what i need?
please help!

While the Dbox would work fine you could just build a simple passive summing rail and use the 2-track input of one of the consoles for monitoring. (assuming one of the consoles has a usable monitoring section)

thank you !
the studers are quite limited in monitoring ( only stereo Xlr out and monitor unbalanced 1/4 in jacks ) so i guess i do need a monitoring box to be able to monitor accurately after soundcard ..

can u specify a little how would a pasive suming DY rail work or can be done ?

still learning...
