Peter just get the best audio interface you can afford and then get a patchbay. I have a bunch of equipment and my interface is 8 inputs - which is quite normal. Inputs, and large modulation matrix’s are overrated.

As for the networking, there is the choice of either spending a lot on Dante, or a lot on AVB switches (and it looks to be a bit like the Betamax of audio networking), or just forget about the whole thing, which seems the most prudent solution.
