If your laptop allows it, I can recommend a firewire-device like the
focusrite saffire pro24 which would do 4 analog inputs and 6 analog
outputs at 44kHz, 48kHz and 96kHz. And additionally has spdif io and
an adat input. And the price is somewhere around 300€.

Sounds like 96K output over USB is a no go then.

So there are no known USB 2 audio cards that work with ALSA or OSS?
