You need to get better suppliers then.  Can't help you on your side of the
pond, but I can tell you there is a huge difference on my side of the pond
between most stores and suppliers.

You don't need to get that many mic inputs unless you want them.  There are
multiple interfaces I can think of with 2 or less mic inputs but still
having ADAT or multiple line inputs.  And of course there are numerous 2
channel or so interfaces.

Korg Triton, as an example, years ago had it.  I liked the concept, in
reality it very rarely got used, thus why it likely got removed(Pure
assumption on my part).  For gigging musicians, it means savings thousands
of dollars on AD/DA conversion, for studio musicians many are switching to
controllers and computer based synths or using analog synths.
