The HDA standard (in as much as there is such a thing) is stereo in at
16bits, though some have 20bit. The 20 bits seems to be a waste of time
as, in my experience, the s/n on even the line inputs is something like an
old cassette recorder. On my desktop it is not even uniform from one
channel to the other :P I have my internal audio disabled in bios. I also
have an old ensoniq 1370 which is much quieter than any internal audio I
have heard. The ART dualUSBpre would be a better bet (or something
similar)... it does have the USB problems but it is USB1.1 so bandwidth is
low and for recording you may get away with quite a high latency anyway.
It is very small to carry and USB powered. (remembering you also mentioned
a mixer :) )

Outputs are mostly 24bit though and normally reasonable quality
amplification.
