When you buy an Intel CPU do you expect it to say "Supports x86
instruction set"?  The ability for a soundcard to accept multiple analog
inputs and output them all simultaneously to a single sink has been
standard for so long that any card that *can't* do it (assuming it has
multiple analog inputs) would be considered total garbage.  You don't
have to tout something that is a basic, standard capability.
