What is the latest with the M2Tech Hiface?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I bought an M2Tech Hiface about a year ago when it was being billed as the greatest thing since sliced bread.

 

I use it currently as a pretty decent laptop sound card outputting to my home stereo receiver.

 

I was hoping that it would eventually get Linux support. Does anyone know if there are still plans for that?

 

I remember that there was some controversy with the device -- something about some hardware revisions not having the best quality clock chip?

 

Anyways... anyone know the latest on this device?

As far as anybody knows, there are still plans for Linux support. However, nobody knows what these plans say about the year in which that driver would actually get written.

 

Some hardware revisions used a crystal whose physical dimensions were smaller than previous ones. Whether size is a measure of quality for clock crystals might be debatable, but their customers certainly perceived it as such, so M2Tech went back to the bigger one.
