First, I would like to thank everyone for their advice and opinions. THey have 
been extremely valuable to me.

Can anyone else back up the Emagic 6|2m statement? Does it really work? I see 
no reference to it on alsa-project.org.

If this is a decent working usb solution, I'll probably jump on it.
Thanks again,
