I'm curious, I know the basic Soundblaster Live is well supported on 
linux, but I haven't seen much on the Audigy 4 or some of the other 
higher end cards like the E-MU 1820M. Mostly what I'm thinking of are 
front panel mount input/output convenience devices that fit in a 5 1/4" 
bay, and include SPDIF optical. Other cards than Soundblaster are ok, 
but frankly I don't pay much attention to what else is available. Some 
of the RME Hammerfall cards have some support, but I'm assuming it isn't 
complete, and also that the cost is way beyond what I'd be willing to 
pay. Can anyone give advice on a linux-compatible card with good quality 
and front patch panel available including SPDIF?
