My Stero Link 1200 arrived... it's awesome. I was really impressed at the quality of cables it came with, too... I wasn't expecting that. More reason to finish my Ruby/Evas remote control interface! And BTW, it works flawlessly with Linux... If you have USB audio support, it's just the first free /dev/dsp... for me, /dev/dsp1 (/dev/dsp0 is my built-in shitty sound card).

Internet at 24400 baud sucks. 6+ days. *sigh*

Worked a bunch on my new site... gettin' rad. Thinking about making an announcement and releasing the code. I know whitaker is interested in helping. evan might be. revjim was, but I think he's too busy being in love to help hack.

how does usb audio work? just map the actual sound card to a virtual device that it directs output to the usb device and it handles the conversion?

The "actual sound card" is nowhere in this picture. The USB Audio device appears as a second sound card to the system, and the digital signal (essentially whatever one would write to /dev/dsp*) goes to the box, and it does the D/A conversion.
