I need regular ones.

I believe in opensource because I'm curious and I don't like secrets.
Following an idea from another alsa developer that answered me before
you I'll keep analog mixer and soundcard separated.
I need also usb as external soundcard (I'm sorry Niels...).
So I'll get notepad 124fx
http://www.soundcraft.com/products/product.aspx?pid=172) and usb
soundcard from http://www.esi-audio.com/products/maya44usb/ .
The music is my hobby and so I'll go on this way.
I have seen that soundcraft writes really nice user guides and I think
it is an opportunity to improve my knowledge in this field.
To add a sound path from PS3 to active speaker I'll get something
similar to this one: http://www.ambery.com/2hddodtsdihd.html .

Here you are a "fantastic PA and Home theatre system", where the
stereo PA functionality is preferred in respect of HT usage.

Any consideration?
For the first step I'll have 2X8030A Genelec, Notepad 124fx, Linux PC,
TV Bravia, CD player, Headphones.
Maybe, to do also multichannel 5+1 from, should be better another
soundcard than Maya44usb (I have now an awful 7+1 Creative X-fi that
is not flat at all).
Then I'll add the sub, then ...
If anybody wants to modify the odp file is welcomed.
