The Seraph series of PCIe interfaces from german manufacturer Marian
will be officially supported soon. So far the M2 (dual MADI card) and
Seraph 8 (8 channels analogue I/O) are working, the A3 (3x ADAT) is
being added soon. If you do not need the matrix mixer from the RME
cards, they are a cheaper alternative - and still offer german
engineering (the best kind :).

Machines can do the work, so people have time to think.
