7Q and Audio

I have a question about audio workflow with the 7Q. I have never used SDI connectors before. My current equipment is Canon 5Diii, which uses the awful mini plug for audio. I have a separate Beachtek preamp and that does a decent job of feeding into the 5D.

What I'd like to do is feed HDMI into the 7Q, but also feed a high quality audio signal to the 7Q. Would I use something like an analog audio to SDI converter box like this?:

Blackmagic Design Mini Converter Analog to SDI CONVMAAS2 B&H

I want to avoid having a separate audio recorder from the video recorder. I know that the highest quality audio is achieved that way, but it's really such a PITA for my kind of work.

Any thoughts of best way to get high quality audio and video recording from the 7Q?
