thank you for the reply! All I found from RME product line for
ExpressCard is the HDSPe
adapter which seems to provide interface to external RME I/O-boxes
like "Multiface II" or "Digiface". This setup would be bit overkill
and nothing but compact. Last but not least, this would be too
expensive. I would like to keep this ExpressCard sound card below

Any other suggestions? I'm especially interested in experience with
Echo "Indigo IOx ExpressCard" sound card in Linux environment.
