AFAIK the only PCIe sound chips are made by Creative (consumer
cards, no good Linux support). It is possible to put a PCIe/PCI
bridge chip on a card, but the only vendors that do are ESI and
Asus. ESI uses Tenor chips, which aren't supported at all; Asus
Xonar cards are useful only if you do not need more than one stereo
consumer-level line input (but then they have very good ADCs; see
).

No, two channels. The limits are 512000 bytes/s per direction full
duplex or 1023000 bytes/s half duplex.

Mono would be possible, but I don't know of any such device.
