What is your definition of "professional quality"?
You are aware that the most professional sound card can sound less good,
if there's audio jitter e.g. caused by the combination mobo + sound
What Interfaces do you need?
The card should work with Ubuntu >= 10, but should it also be usable
with new mobos in the near future or would PCI be ok too?
It's said that RME cards are good supported by Linux. I own a HDSPe AIO
and it's not good supported.
M-Audio should be good supported, but you might consider those cards as
semi-pro and not pro.
It depends to the usage, what "professional quality soundcard" does
