The RME Hammerfall 9652 (not HDSP) works perfectly well here in slave mode with
SPDIF or ADAT inputs. All syncing options are available in the main desktop
mixer (kmix for example). I have 2 ones in my studio linked by optical ADAT
cables. They allow me to play on Windows inside Linux and vice versa... The
clock system of these cards is really the best I have ever known... Enjoy it !
