Try looking at the Alesis ZoneMix 6 (and the Numark RM-6 -- which is 
identical except for the branding).

It's a 1U rackmount mixer with six stereo inputs.  It's designed for 
DJ's and installations, so any input can be routed or summed to 
either of two busses, A and/or B.  Each channel has a switch for 
routing to A, B, or A+B; as well as individual volume and mute 
controls.  Each bus is fully stereo with its own EQ, Pan, and Mute 

I merely designate one of the busses for an Effect Send, and the 
other for the Mains.  Then I route the Effect Returns back into 
individual channels.  The only annoyance is that the unbalanced I/O 
is on RCA jacks.  It's built well and there are plenty of jacks, 
though, so it turns out to be a pretty flexible configuration.

They've been discontinued for a while, but still pop up on Ebay for 
reasonable prices.
