SMUX stands for Sample Multiplexing, a technology which allows you to trade fewer trasmitted audio channels for higher sampling rates. In the case of the PreSonus FireStudio, 8 channels of ADAT light pipe rather than 16, at a sampling rate of 96kHz rather than 44.1/48kHz.

Up to three FireStudio's can be daisy-chained giving you up to 54 inputs and outputs.

Track Mode delivers nine stereo mixes for monitoring in headphones during tracking, Mix Mode allows the user to switch between three sets of stereo monitors, and Surround Mode enables 5.1 surround control for mixing in surround sound.
