It seems that this topic is much less interesting than the mysteries of 
the subconscious :)

Anyway I may have found a bargain for a Focusrite Saffire PRO 24 
Although the ffado site lists support as experimental 
(http://www.ffado.org/?q=node/1204) the posts there and other stuff 
about the pro 10 which I guess is similar make me optimistic about it 

Again it would be nice to hear some current news from someone 
successfully using it
