Exactly. It shouldn't have been on this list.

Regarding audio quality of multiple USB devices, the individual devices
may be capable of reasonable quality, but as soon as you start to use
software resampling to synchronise things the quality is compromised.
Some may consider this "good enough", but it isn't something I would
consider for professional work unless there really was no alternative.
