MOTU just released the 828es with AVB and USB standard compliant and two ADAT I/O and Web based (not ALSA) mixer. That would be, for now, the ultimate (AVB)  interface for Linux,  if it works.

That is such good news.  What(low cost)  hardware would this development be used on to support the developers with testing/debugging and maybe even development ?

* MOTU LP32 (Preferred)
* MiniDSP  (I think MOTU's switch uses midDSP switch hardware)

I hope someday it will be possible to connect 4 or more 8 channel ADAT modules (32 channels) to a PC under Ubuntu via AVB with low latency. The only option to get this done under Windows is a Focursrite DANTE based  Rednet 3 right now because Thunderbolt is not really available there as well. Plan to get Rednet3,  but that does not solve the Linux environment which I prefer. Would love to be able to use the Rednet 3 under Linux but since DANTE is proprietary , so unlikely.

My two wishes:
  [a] Multi (16+) channel low latency audio I/O using ADAT audio AD/DA
  [b[ Bitwig  supporting LV2 plugins.

With those two,  the Linux Audio environment would be perfect and the world a better place.
