Why aren't there any boutique fader mixers?

rs_'s Are Rotary Mixers getting more popular got me wondering...

There's now several rotary options out or coming out. I'm wondering why there doesn't really seem to be any interest in fader mixers of similar spec?

(I guess Formula Sound could be considered a boutique fader mixer, but is there anything else?)

There are also some really high quality Professional Broadcasting mixers.

Rodec and Dateq make very high quality, good sounding extremely strong mixers. Dateq is dutch, 100mm faders, 5-8 channels (depending on the model) on the 'cheaper' models there is a crossfader. all ALPS inside. Vertical PCBs. I've seen these things be abused you wouldn't believe it. Several liters of beer, no problem.

The Rodec mixers are more DJ oriented (the big Dateqs could mix very small bands, and are used in bars as a main mixer) with better cue'ing systems, 60mm faders with normal caps and PFL level meters.

Both are real workhorses but sound good (not like a Freevox though)
Technics SL1210mk2s and a Freevox DJ CLUB
