Definitely use alsa drivers. Check the www.alsa-project.org page to see
which cards are supported. I use a RME digi 96/8 which gives you 8
channel output. There are other multichannel cards that work. Ask on the
alsa mailing list about other peoples experiences before buying! Some
cards are easier to set up than others. I once tried to set up a box with
3 SB 128's, I got 6 channel input, but could use only one card for output
without distortion. If sync between channels is important you need to get
a single card that does 4 channels anyway. Or the expensive cards that
allow external sync and a master clock generator, in which case a
hamerfall would be cheaper.
Hope this helps
