Is it just me... or is that absolutely terrible advice for buying a soundcard? $300, janky specs (123dB SNR - my best RME at work quotes 118dBa). 32bit Audio... for streaming? For something small but good, maybe an Audient iD14?
Meh - I think I'm just grumpy and tired. :).
I've never heard of Audient before, but the iD14 looks quite nice. Personally, if I were to recommend something for streaming, I'd suggest either the Behringer UM2 ($50) or the Focusrite Scarlet ($110). However, if I were to recommend something in that form factor for professional audio work (mixing, voice acting, stuff where audio quality isn't lost by way of stream compression or decompression), I'd suggest the Motu M4 ($220).
