I see.
I thought that Ravenna interfaces (e.g. the Horus from Mergings)would be
able to interact with a computer without any other audio interface,
and so if it would be open there would be no problem standing in the way
for Linux compatible drivers.
Too bad really as I was getting excited that in the near future there would
be no hardware limits for Linux users.

>Non sequitur. You have all interfaces running stable on linux with

I feel a bit different about this.
Yes I'm getting work done nicely, RME 9652 works like a charm.
But there is a certain bummer in not being able to choose from the variety
that's out there today. (Price, performance etc.)

Obviously my understanding of drivers is not so good, that's also the
reason I asked.

Thanks for the elaboration.

Best Regards
Moshe

As with many Audio over IP-protocol suites, it is not only a matter o=
f
software and OS support. Fun starts with hardware support for PtP and
audio interfaces with variable clocks. If you are looking for a cheap
solution to transfer audio data, you can use any technique. But if you
need realtime monitoring/audio producing, the demands are higher than
with a normal audio interface. At the moment :)

Non sequitur. You have all interfaces running stable on linux with
products from at least two different manufacturers. If you want to get
your work done. nothing stands in your way.

All Audio over IP-protocols just *transport* audio data. Then what?
