As with many Audio over IP-protocol suites, it is not only a matter of
software and OS support. Fun starts with hardware support for PtP and
audio interfaces with variable clocks. If you are looking for a cheap
solution to transfer audio data, you can use any technique. But if you
need realtime monitoring/audio producing, the demands are higher than
with a normal audio interface. At the moment :)

Non sequitur. You have all interfaces running stable on linux with
products from at least two different manufacturers. If you want to get
your work done. nothing stands in your way.

All Audio over IP-protocols just *transport* audio data. Then what?

Machines can do the work, so people have time to think.
