I read more negative messages about MOTU.  I use an Focusrite 18i20 extended with a Scarllett Octpore over ADAT with WORD or ADAT clock for 16 channels under Ubuntu 17.04 with great working ALSA mixer using sample rates from 44.1 to 96 Khz. (though with high USB latency).  Planning to get a Rednet 3 (DANTE) and if this would/should work with this solution I would be very exited and definitely consider to get one sooner as planned.  My switch supports IGMPv2 multicast. (Cisco 2960G8-TCL).  I am familiar with Linux coding but don't know how to recompile ALSA and install/upgrade it to test on an existing kernel.  A 210 card  I can get easily. There are some different I210 card versions it seems, any recommendations ? Coding wise, I  wish to find time to support the FR Scarlett Gen 2 ALSA mixer on Linux as a lot of people want it due to it's much low USB latency.

With an Intel I210 NIC you can already have AVB in combination with Jack. But you have to do some coding yourself to fit your purposes..

I would never recommend buying MOTU.

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 https://www.minidsp.com/products/network-audio/avb-dg
    <https://www.minidsp.com/products/network-audio/avb-dg>  (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.
