      1. Built-in audio tends to be limited in some capacity anyway, and I always have a spare audio card. So, it just adds unnecessary cost in my situation.
      2. Not in this case. I'm looking at 8x to 16x Passthrough. That's not even available in current Thunderbolt 3. Thunderbolt 4 is rumoured to finally achieve PCI-e 3.0 speeds. I'm looking more at PCI-e 4.0 x16 over USB ;) 
      3. That sounds more like Linus than me. But, I guess it's open to interpretation :P

      so you admit it's necessary... XD

      3. That actually sounds a lot like me...

      I wrote a piece of music once and it included alternating dotted and non dotted 32nd notes, to which my music teacher/expert piano player refused to play...
