Those are _very_ different cards. If anything, i'd compare the RME
(probably Multiface) with the 1010 proper, not with the el cheapo
1010LT. Even then the cards are still quite different.
And the LT is not even balanced.

I suspect you probably don't need the RME if you look favourably upon
the 1010LT. If that's true, then it's simple: you need balanced analog?
then get the 1010. you don't need balanced? then get the 1010LT.
