The RME ADI8 QS can do so, but than it is providing only 2 channels per
ADAT interface (alternatively you can use four AES/EBU inputs). But
unfortunately the RME HDSP 9632 (mind the 32, not the 52) supports 192
kHz only via AES/EBU or analogue. I had no problem to configure that
sound card to 192 kHz using hdspconf, ALSA + JACK, and hdspmixer seemed
to work well (without real testing). However, I did not use the latest
ALSA for that (Fedora Core 6/Planet CCRMA, I do not know by heart the
ALSA version).
