The Phase 26 doesn't have preamps or phantom power for mics, you'd
need to use condenser mics with it. It's still a great card, though, I
have it myself.
And careful with the Tascams. Some of these require firmware to be
loaded, so make sure that's included with your live Linux CD/stick.

The Phase 26 can be bought without the MS-Windows software for much
less (a wellknown large mailorder in Europe has it for 129,- and the
Alesis IO|2 for 139,-)
