Re: [linrad] external audio I/O device for laptops

I'm finding some USB adapters that do 24bit 96kHz but not having
much luck discovering how to run under linux. Is anyone running
USB A/D (sound card) with other than standard 16bit 44/48kHz?
I found a linux usb audio driver but it's not clear if the thing
will work with these fancier cards. Have any of you guys messed
with these things?

M-Audio Sonica Theater and one of the SoundBlaster Extigy devices
are advertised as 24bit 96kHz. M-Audio at $100 and Soundblaster
at about $140.
