JPotts, 18.01.2018
I compared a number of studio monitor controllers, and this best matched my requirements (and budget). Here are a few things I like about the unit, and the one feature I find it lacks.

One of the reasons I chose this controller is because it's "rack-style" with controls on the front, rather than so many of the competitor products which sit on your desktop with controls on the top surface.

The main volume pot turns in increments, rather than total smooth turning (12 "clicks" per 90 degrees). This is great, so you have always measure back to a reference level, instead of guessing an approximate location/location.

All three inputs can be active at once (to a single output). The individual input and output trims are also very useful.

I did not examine the manual/photos of the rear panel enough prior to purchase: Input 3 is a single unbalanced stereo jack, whereas Inputs 1 and 2 are two balanced mono jacks. But this is fine for my purposes, I just need to buy some different cables to what I expected.

The only feature I find it lacks is a dim button.

Solid and totally flexible

08.01.2017
Above all, I emphasize the fact that I use it as an amateur in a home studio. Overall, I am very pleased with CSC with one exception.

First, the device is small and solid: buttons, potentiometers, jack, LED, etc. The manufacturing quality is impeccable.

Side sound, I do not know whether it is totally neutral or not. However, to the ear, when the volume knob is in the central position, I did not feel the slightest distortion. I would have liked to find a technical test with measurements. I have a little distortion when the potentiometer is full but it is not an amp so it's silly to use it as well.

It's especially his flexibility that makes him great. For better understanding, see the Block Diagram in the User's Manual, [LINK]. It allows you to mix 3 inputs (2 balanced 1 unbalanced) and send them to 3 outputs (balanced, unbalanced compatible). With a button to activate EACH input / output. There is a global knob on the front for all outputs but also 6 knobs below, for each input / output. They allow fine adjustment of the level of each equipment and equalize the whole. Also, a button to switch everything to mono, and one to mutate everything. A headphone output independent of the outputs, also mutable ... it's royal!

At home, it allows me to mix an audio interface (balanced) with line output from a 2nd PC (unbalanced) to monitors (balanced) speakers and Hi-Fi speakers (unbalanced).

I noticed a small problem. The motherboard jack on the PC connected to the unbalanced input generates a (very) light buzz that can be heard on all outputs. As a problem of adapting impedance or mass. Difficult to understand the source of the problem: PC, SCC, both ... but the many adjustments to limit the worry.
