ASUS EEEbox comes to mind.

If you like bare-bones: search for "Advantech Single Board Computers".
They come without HDD, w/o power-supply and w/o case (it's not a "box"
per se), but there are powerful models available that meet your specs
and even with PS, HDD and case will be within in your budget.

I'm just setting up an installation using a PCM-9363D-S8A1E (Atom CPU

Presonus 1818VSL: 8 channel audio I/O -- jackd runs stable at "-p64
-r48000 -n2" ~6ms round-trip latency with debian/wheezy's RT-kernel.

Firewire is rare these days. Besides: "MOTU is hostile towards Linux"

How many channels do you need?

> The Z-Box looks interesting saying that it has 8-channels digital audio output via HDMI. I have no clue how to get that to 8 analog line signals, but maybe there is a cheap way? Will there be a problem getting Jack to talk to this kind of interface?
