Hi Joe,

Thanks for the reply. I know this part of the question isn't linux specific, but presumably the AD converters in something like that aren't "as good" as those in a more expensive device though? I guess my question is do I have to fork out for a feature rich device such as one of the RME ones, or is there something with a more limited feature set out there (eg only 2 channels) that is of equally high quality?

And then of course the linux specific question is -> Is it supported?

 Jordan.  You can probably use a low-end interface like the
 UCA202 which runs around $30 US. 
 While certainly not great, I've found it
 fine for playong audio out to my stereo and to
 do the occasional cassette
 or turntable
