My normal practice is to split post-ADC. This is slightly more dangerous than you might think, given that my current ADC's are Lynx II cards in the PC. But since the output routing to AES/EBU is handled on the card, it continues to work even if the recording software hangs. (Fortunately, this has only happened once in five years. I delayed rebooting until intermission, and my backup deck captured the four "money" channels.)

This arrangement also saves me a lot of repatching when the "primary" mics change between pieces. I do the routing from Lynx mixer app.

Occasionally I use an analog split, but it is almost always post preamp, so no sonic impact.
