    I believe several companies are making external sound card that plug in the
    USB port.
    Why more then one sound card ?

    Mostly for people with notebook PCs or crappy onboard sound. As for
    connecting more than 1 sound card, yes you can, but unless you have
    applications that route sound info directly you can only use one device for
    input and one for output at a time.

    True. One reason I've been thinking about buying an external USB sound
    system for my laptop is not so much because the sound chip sucks, but
    because it has pitiful output options, only a headphone miniplug (this
    is pretty common with laptops). I'd like to have AT LEAST line-out, if
    I ever wanted to connect it to a better sound system etc.

    Could that headphone miniplug be "duel purpose"
    and also function as a line-out ?
