How is an inch thick front panel "attached" to the electronics? In fact, it isn't. What's inside could easily be housed in something much lighter and cheaper. Your use of the word "theory" is...

What you call "intellectual or supposed rationalization" is what most other people call scientific and engineering reality. Digital is superior in every meaningful measurement. That's a fact.

What I remember about the Sonic Holography setup was that it made recommendations that make sense for any two channel setup--make sure the speakers are equidistant and eliminate early reflections.
