I heard some other bad latency experience with usb hardware. But mybe
that there are some better card that sb extigy. I just look for people

think it's very expensive? And what about it's support with ALSA?

But i think that this one doesn't work under Linux .It's my problem....
Is anybody had an experience with this kind of firewire hardware?
