i can't (this one cost me my soul). but if i were ever granted a spare
soul, i might.

when i'm in need of extra analog i/o, i hook up a (gasp!) behringer ada
8000. definitely not the nicest of converters, but does the job (unless
you need decent mic preamps).

my current kernel is (alternating) a .24-rt-something and a .27.
i follow ffado's 2.0 svn branch, jack is also from svn, but the latest
releases should be ok.
