[CQ-Contest] Off Topic - IC706MKIIG and Filtering

HI Folks;

I have an IC706mkIIG that for the most part I really like, however, it 
does not have any filters of any kind in / on it.  I am planning to 
replace it as soon as I can, however between now and then, I would like 
to come up with some way to filter the received signals.  The radio has 
2 slots for icom filters which are very difficult to find (at least 
according to vendors at Dayton this year) (and when you do find them 
they are expensive) I was wondering if there was a way I could tap that 
signal chain at the filter slots and take the signal out to my computer 
for audio processing, and then either hear it directly from the computer 
or return it to the radio for further "voodoo" before it gets to my ears.

I'm not very familiar with receiver functioning nor audio processing 
like this so this is kinda stretching my limits a bit here as far as 
technical stuff goes, so I might need some in depth explainations
