I think building a combination hardware M/S decoder> balanced loop > M/S encoder is a relative simple thing circuitry wise, but component wise you're talking about something like a 4 channel mixer. How many totally-transparent mastering-quality 4 channel mixers can you buy for less than $1,700?

Practical joke/con? Using M/S in mastering is a trick that has been around for decades....
