Ahh oops.
Just got exited over the fact that it is supported under Linux.

Have you looked at this one?

... and this seems to have a price-tag on it.

It is sold here for 860,- Euros -- the Focusrite would be 175,-

Enybody out there, who knows reliable and Linux-proof USB2-devices =A0for s=
ay, less than 250,- ?

Preferably devices, that are available in stores...

I've used their on location mixer and the pre's and AD is outstandi=
ng. Never
used the usb device, but maybe someone else did...
On their site they state that the usbpre2 is supported under Linux.
Interesting.

Hope this will be helpful,

Moshe

Any issues or happy stories about this Saffire USB interface? I'm
planning to buy one usb interface soon.

Sorry never tried this one...

Also any reliable USB audio device with pre-amps.

The Edirol UA-25Ex is very good and very well supported in Linux.
Mine has served me well for years.

One thing though: if your USB port is of type EHCI, check exactly
which version you have (using lspci) and google it before!
I'm saying this because I changed laptop few months ago, and some EHCI<=

USB ports have a bug that makes Jack/Alsa and USB 1 soundcard not
working at all...

I'm now using a M-Audio Fast-Track Ultra (USB2, so I don't have iss=
ues
with EHCI anymore), but it's not 100% supported yet (although the Alsa<=

developers are working on it)...

Hope this helps!
