Look:

"In my opinion, “real X-Fi chip” was a hybrid and it was very complex and based on highly complex mathematical algorithms.
On the other hand, if the algorithm is too complex, takes too long to do,
generate a numerous of anomalies in the DAC conversion process and does
cause audible distortions and ultrasonic frequencies like coming from early vinyl copies...
Smarter software and compilers could diminish or even eliminate the need for
such complex transistor logic and correct that anomalies in the system..."

Sorry to hear about that.

I have a question:
Will the linux specific drivers work regardless of the Linux distribution or CPU architecture? :thumbsup:

If they are having a lot of problems with the sound on the Windows
what can we expect on Linux?

If you can't get good drivers for Linux, it may never function
as well as a card with good driver support.

But you can have High-End Audio CARD on LINUX and High-End DRIVERS on LINUX! :D

The Trinity DAW

Trinity is the world's first fully featured hand held recording studio in LINUX.

Start-up Trinity Audio Group (TAG) is using Linux and open source audio applications in a small, portable, inexpensive digital audio workstation (DAW) claimed capable of professional-quality recording and mixing. The Trinity DAW is based on an Intel PXA270 processor, and targets field recordists, podcasters, and producers.
Trinity provides a robust multi-track recording environment that allows a user to record, edit, equalize, audition and mix audio, songs or sound files (wav, mp3, ogg vorbis, flac) at "DAT-quality" sample rates of 16 bit 44.1khz, 48khz or 24 bit at 96khz - 192khz.
Claimed signal-to-noise headroom ranges between 90db and 110db.

The Trinity DAW's audio system is licensed from Echo Audio, one of the best-known vendors of USB-, PCMCIA, and Firewire-based external sound cards for laptop-using recordists.

The Trinity DAW's primary interface will be based initially on Audacity, a nicely polished open source multi-track editor available for a variety of operating systems, including Windows and Mac OS X. TAG hopes to use the latest 1.3 Audacity release, currently beta testing, which permits multiple clips-per-track, easy track resizing, and other advanced features. The Audacity team kindly ported its 1.3 release to ARM for Trinity.

Conclusion:

It is interesting fact that Echo Audio [echoaudio.com] have absolutely no linux support.

But if some audio subsystems like this worth $1,000- helps that its Linux drivers are written...

I am a person who would love to us Linux for things, but almost every time I try,
I keep getting bit by unsupported hardware or lacking features.

Who says Linux powered hardware isn’t sexy?
