for LOTS of faders and a wheel check the JL COOPER Minidesk. Its tiny and well built.
But the problem with faders is that they only make sense on global controls like master speed, master size, background color... for LAYER parameters the position of the faders would have to change from layer to layer or you will get value jumps when moving a fader in a different layer. this can be solved by motorized faders, but some cheapo product like the behringer BCF will die on you quite soon. for that reason i seriously recommend endless encoders like in the Faderfox, best combined with some faders for mixing and global controls like in the Faderfox DJ2 or LC2.The modular approach of these units makes it possible to combine them to suit one's needs.
