Sorry if this is a stupid question.

by SE do you mean Southeastern region of the US?  There are several Sound Devices "Stocking Partners" in Atlanta and Orlando.

David Prentice at Dale Pro Audio has always been a good guy to deal with. I buy a bit of Dante from him. Tell him I sent you.

The MD-4 is a great unit, I have several if you need any info. We also use...
RDL RU-MLB4p / RU-LB4p which are throwdown 4x4 with / without mic pres.
AtteroTech uNDIO2x2 throwdown 2x2 with mic pres.
Neutrik NA2-IO-DLINE throwndown 2x2 line level
Tascam ML-16D 16x16 line level 1RU
Ferrofish A32 Dante 32x32analog/64x64MADI/64x64 Dante 1RU

very happy with all of these products and continue to buy more of all of them.

The Sound Devices MD-4 got a pretty ho hum review from the very detail oriented Langson Holland over on the Syn-Aud-Con forums, however that was specifically for measurement I/O

I have been looking at the Shure ANI4IN and ANI4OUT combo myself.

The two 4i/4o boxes I use are the ST 5414 and Extron AXI-44AT. Both have some front panel controls, for preamp gain etc. The Extron is much smaller, 1/3RU, and has phoenix connectors instead of XLRs. Its fidelity makes its useful for utility applications rather than principal IO - i use it to connect link a dante network to a matrix intercom system.

I guess I have a different understanding of 'throwdown' to Greg, as Im not sure why units with phoenix connectors would qualify for such description - like the atterotech unit (which I also use, and are fine, but not 4x4).

Be aware of the flow limitations with the 4x4 units; as most or all of them will still use the Ultimo chipsets, which from memory are constrained to 2 flows in each direction. It is also worth paying attention to the control options and gain resolution with some of these smaller units, they may not be what you initially expect coming from larger and more fully featured units.

Glensound's AIOP44 is a bare bones 1RU Dante line level 4 ch I/O using the Ultimo chip. About $600.00. They've proven very durable and work like a charm.

I believe the Ultimo is only limited to 2 x 2 when using at 88.2/96K... at 44.1/48K they are 4 x 4.

Flows, not channels. The upshot being that your four outputs can only be fed from a maximum of two separate devices. The inputs (going to the Dante network) can always be configured as a multicast flow if necessary.
