2.2 with automatic analog/digital input switching

2.2 with automatic analog/digital input switching

Recently I got 2 x 8361a and glad to say they rock. Before I had pair of 8020d for desk and that made me want genelec qualities in my living room.

I am wanting to add 2 x 7380 subs to my 8361s and effectively make it 2.2 stereo setup for music.

Digital AES/EBU XLR signal will be used for music stereo setup - each channel will get dedicated sub.

But - same time in current setup I also enjoy it in my home cinema marantz AV7705 analog XLR outputs going to analog inputs of same 2 x 8361 monitors.

And automatic analog/digital switching works like a charm ! So all I need to do to start listening music is to turn off TV and play some Roon tracks, and vice versa.

My question is - will same feature work with 2 x 7380a subs added ?

I will feed:

for music. AES/EBU signal: A -> sub1 -> left 8361;  B  -> sub2 -> right 8361 

and

for HT. Marantz XLR analog signal:  L OUT -> left 8361, R OUT -> right 8361,  LFE OUT -> LFE IN of sub1 LFE OUT -> LFE IN sub2 

And one more question is if I calibrate AES/EBU connections (sub1 plays only left, sub2 play only right channel) in GLM - will it sound OK (not priority -   but) in home theatre ( where I daisy chain LFE through both subs) ?
