I use the Focusrite Scarlett 2i4, it works perfectly on arch. It has
quite good mic-preamps and is an affordable device. I've also tested the
RME Babyface, RME Fireface UFX+ and the RME Fireface 802 succesfully in
class compliant mode. Just be aware that you won't have the TotalMix
Software on linux. Also I had issues with connecting additional devices
via ADAT to RME interfaces.

Hope it helps!
