I should note that if you are game to do audio computing using a small
computer, the WRT might not be your best option, but there are other

For example, you could put together a small-form-factor (mini-ITX or
such) computer that has an audio or SPDIF output on it.  Take a look
at the AudioPint project for example.


Or to go _really_ small, have a look at gumstix: http://gumstix.com/
A gumstix + roboaudio board will cost about $200 and it can do audio
output directly.  Though I think you'll have the same issues in terms
of floating point operations.

There are likely several other options for small computing.
