You can have the best or you can have cheap but not both. Good interfaces start around $80 and great ones can be several thousands.
I bought several items from sweetwater lately and really like them. So here is a link to usb interfaces. Any of the other big music supply store will have equal deals.

Thanks very much, I shall certainly look into that website.
However, I'll just ask simply now; can anyone reccomend me a good (at least) 2-in digital audio interface that will work with a MacBook Air via USB connection that can record vocals from a mic and guitar (through a jack cable) that will function with Garageband?
Many thanks in advance for any further assitance.

Pretty much any of those usb interfaces at sweetwater webpage will work.
It would be much quicker if you just pick a price range and then people will have a easier time making a recommendation.

Anything up to 250 euros probably (I'm living in Spain at the moment so I that's about 325 dollars)

Check out the these at Andertons in the UK. All good quality and will do what you want.
Presonus, Focusrite, M-Audio are great.

I have a similar question: I want to record from my Yamaha stereo receiver onto my Mac Air, I guess using Garage Band. Specifically, I get SiriusXM radio on my stereo (not an internet subscription). Is there a simple way of connecting the output of my receiver/tuner to the Mac? I would hook it up to a sirius station, let it record for several hours, then go back and edit the songs that I want to keep on Garage Band, and then put it on iTunes to listen whenever. I don't wany anything fancy.
