Yes I have. I works with the ALSA drivers, but the latency is not as
good as Hammerfall, since it has a Audiobuffer of ca. 20ms on Card and
no dirct o memory access (which on computers avout 300MHz make about
10%CPU on 8 channels). It works also reliable with AES/EBU and ADAT 8
channels. In an Installation I have it now running about 2years-24h

I did not test the 96kHz stuff.
