That is true of both IVY and Legato

Legato 3.1 doesn't suit for that purpose?
The Legato series of I/V stages uses more power, so you would want to make sure packing 4 of those in your case isn't a problem. Also, adapting the IVY3 will take a little less effort (less components to change) and I think Russ stated the IVY3 will respond a little better to just 1/4 of the normal signal.
In any case, the IVY3 uses so much less power that you could get away with just 1 Placid HD + transformer, along with the lower price of the IVY3 (compared to Legato with buffer) that's quite a bit of $$ you're saving.

feed the legato with 12v instead of 15v will help reducing the power consumption I think

In this situation where you are using only 1/4 the current you operate the Legato with much less current. In fact you could probably use just one Placid HD BP.

Just confirmed that the current draw for Legato in multi-channel (1/4 input current) configuration is < 30ma (at least as I have it testing right now).

The downside is output impedance is a bit higher (about 700 ohms).

I would likely prefer to use IVY-III for 8 channel work. As its output impedance is always low

Then, if I'm planning on having 8-channel balanced output and am using 4x IVY3 boards, they only require one Placid HD BP and one 15V+15V transformer?

Edit: What is the height of the BIII + tridents installed?
