Can report the same for a Tascam-122L though this uses a special
"usbstream" method that is so obscure that you cannot find any
documentation for it and need to spell it out in your asoundrc file.

At any rate, sometimes it's just off-sync in the stream (I presume) and
the sound only appears clean at very low volumes when using 24bit
