https://bbs.archlinux.org – Ok I think I'm giving up now, I've searched for several hours and it appears the main problem is, that the soundcard is only recognized as full speed USB 1.1 device and not as USB 2.0 as it should.I've read several posts of people how managed to get this device working with pulseaudio (as is/was true for me) but it seems the bandwidth is not wide(?) enough to support anything beyond 44.1kHz/16bit on 6 channels. which is quite the point buying such a relative expensive device.There is already a bug-report filed on this but it is nearly a year old so it seems there is little hope (HowTos)
