As a matter of fact, my screen was not refreshed and I did not see the other responses, to include yours, therefore I was under the impression that their were no responses. Still, it does not matter, the OP will discern what response is really applicable to his/her situation. Additionally, responses such as mine could provide ideas to others who may be in similar circumstances concerning integrating analog two channel with digital, such as myself. That answers the "why".
As you know, the idea of some forums are to share ideas and experiences, truly advancing their hobby...I would assume that posters who innocently present ideas to help others would not face disparaging, condescending, or belittling comments from so called "industry experts". How does that help the hobby?
Time to get back to the music.
