I have not a problem yet :-) The aim is to have extrenal DAC with own clock 
and sync-dedicated SPDIF-out to sync RME, using last one as a SPDIF stream 
source. And I know hdspconf has options to set such syncing. But before 
ordering the DAC I'd want to be sure such syncing does *really* work with 
current ALSA driver and hdsp GUI tools.
