I found a photo on Flickr of the unit itself. It was entitled the "4 channel Ringo mixer." So this was a workaround for Geoff Emerick to add more mics to the kit.

"Geoff: We never really took notes about how things were done. In the early days, around Revolver, we were still on 4-track, so I think: it was basically one overhead, a snare mic, a bass drum mic, and a hi-hat mic. Later I started to close-mike the toms, and I’d do a pre-mix—putting four of the mics onto a premix and then onto one fader, because we only bad eight inputs on the mixing console."

Okay, so the box is meant for pre-mixing tom mics.
