a friend of mine has a collection of mp3 files which all are based on
44.1kHz. Using a soundcard which only supports 48kHz makes it necessary
to resample the audio material before outputting it to the
To avoid the resampling, he's looking for an USB audio card which runs
well on Linux (preferably with the snd_usb_audio-module) and natively
supports 44.1kHz in hardware.
One choice could be the Edirol UA 1EX, but I haven't found any resource
which clearly states that it is running well on Linux, even at 44.1kHz.
