You know the AVB serie from MOTU.
We've talked about the 1248 & the UTRALITE AVB previously on the
Linux Audio Users list : 


Now the MOTU 624 AVB.
Working with Gnu/Linux Debian 8.7.
The same as 1248 & ULTRALITE AVB, «real» class compliant,  and web app
to control all the settings of the card from your browser.

Update firmware with 0 trouble through the web app interface : 





Some screen shot from the Routing menu (sorry need to zoom out, too
much inputs ! AVB disabled so no stream appears on the screen) 


Screen shot from the Mixing menu : 




And from the Device menu :

Made some quick record (guitar from emulated output of an amp,
microphone vocal) nothing to say, work perfectly. Nice preamp - for me
- clean, no hiss, no background noise, nice dynamic, can hear all my
  bad notes and bad fingers on the guitar :) 
The line input - jack - work also perfectly, respect the color of my
preamp (Warm Audio)

Did not try the optical I/O as i do not have any devices for it.

Thanks UC2, thanks MOTU.

Anyone have access to the Alsa project card's list and update ? 

All the best !
