Conversion of DAT & Cassettes to FLAC

Hey all,
I'm wondering if any of you might be able to suggest equipment that would allow me to transfer both digital and analog source material ultimately into FLAC files for long-term archiving?

Optimally I'd like to get an outboard unit that I could go directly from my Nakamichi via RCA and then connect the output via USB 2.0 to my computer for file editing and conversion to FLAC.

I also would like to run SPDIF from a variety of DAT players into the unit and then also USB 2.0 into my computer.

I would rather not get an internal sound card for these purposes.

What is the current thinking about upsampling? Should it be done automatically by this external rig or should I do it with computer software?

PC-based system. I'm pretty familiar with an older version of Soundforge and could update that for editing and potentially resampling.
