Hi Marco,
i have two soundcards.
* edirol fa 101 firewire, and works out of the box since old freebob
driver and now with the ffado driver. (~ 250/300eu second hand).
* rme multiface I pci (or pcmcia). works out of the box (300/400eu)

both cards are "gnu/linux" ready, both are goods, but rme is better
(lower latency, more stability, direct hardware routing, adat in/out)
