Kinda wonder how a Quilter Microblock 45 (or EHX 44 Magnum) would sound with an SMS or FYD TRP in front of it. Even smaller/lighter than the DCM200L.

Unless you're just going to let the SMS sit out unprotected, because the DCM200L is only 4 lbs. in weight, the Microblock 45 itself is just shy of a half pound, and 1 versus 2 U in a rack = only about an inch and a half difference, in my view, the size and weight savings from replacing a DCM200L with a Microblock would be trivial while the volume and tonal differences significant.

Though discontinued, at least the MicroBlock 45 can be easily found compared to the DCM200L.
