I think i'll stick with the board i originally posted the link to [even if it 
doesn't work well enough i have only wasted 50 euros which isn't that much].. 
I will attach a USB audio interface for testing purposes and if the 
performance is sufficient for me, i'll look into attaching an audio codec to 
its ISP bus.

BTW: i don't need jack to run.. I'm not even sure it can run at all on that 
board. All i need will be a single application which will feed audio into 
LADSPA plugins.. Jack would be overkill..
