I am considering to get a pair of these. Intel Ethernet Server Adapter
I210T1, single port PCI-e (with 802.1qav support).

Thanks all for these helpful comments!
I’ve been studying the last days, and I am studying more.
I downloaded merging technologies free AES67 virtual sound card for mac
already, as well as the Dante Via from audinate (59USD). The latter is also
capable of functioning as a master clock on the network I understand. That
will do for the testing and development at this time. Thanks for the many
other suggestions you made. The gear I found before was more expensive
(e.g. digigram has a -very well reputed- ravenna sound card with linux
support for about 2K).
There is indeed a Ravenna reference implementation with linux support by
ALC NetworX. I’m waiting for information regarding conditions for
obtaining, using, distributing it. I’m also in contact with people at
Merging regarding their VSC driver in progress for Linux.
I contacted audinate regarding AES67 patent claims.
As said, I’m not really considering implementing AES67 as a virtual sound
card driver - I prefer to stay clear of kernel space development. Instead,
Im aiming for a jack client application, and perhaps a jack audio driver
(like the net drivers). The latter allow to have jack running at AES67
clock, and being fully transparent (no sample rate conversion). But the
former, a client application, is probably better if you just want to
receive and monitor / send AES67 on / from a computer having a sound card
Thanks also for the hint about the zita resampler library.
I’m keeping you informed about progress and findings.

A few years back there had been a AES67/Ravenna
implementation. But the
developer and ALX Networks could not agree on the license.
wanted to publish it under GPL, which ALX Networks did not want. So the
implementation was dumped. Well, that is the story how I know it.
The developer was Florian Faber, but he is no
member of the jack-devel
or linux-devel list anymore. Perhapes, he might have some
if you manage to find a contact. ;-)
