Yes Andreas, by PC I meant fixed desktop.
Re ground loops, the Qu-24 and PC are wired from the same 230V mains earth via 230V socket wired back to MCB/Fuse Board earth bar, so why would you get ground loop currents here?

“For Option 2 you should be aware that even if you only need two channels, the USB-B connection will always be a multichannel audio interface and require a decent quantity of system performance to run reliably. And it may be difficult to send your audio to the correct pair of channels, if your applications are not multi-channel aware.”
Don’t understand what you mean here, for Option 2 I’m just talking about playing back audio (e.g. from youtube or i-tunes) to ONE channel (ST1) via the USB B streaming?

Re Option 3, this is an interface box with USB connection (which connects to PC USB port) and a mini-jack Line Out connection (which connetcs to Qu-24 ST1 input). I am calling this interface box a DCA, Digital (USB) to Analog (Line Out) converter, is this correct?
