Good day.

Theoretical question: is it possible to use ALSA sound drivers with 
DragonFly kernel? There is tons of well drivers for excellent sound 
cards (e.g. CardBus Echo Indigo and Audigy2 ZS Notebook, USB with Tenor 
chipset, ...). So I must use Linux if I want to listen Hi-Res music (for 
example 24bit/96KHz vinyl rip) on my laptop.

I have tried to use Audigy. In 3.0 it produces extremely loud BEEP only. 
3.1 hangs when I insert this card or load snd_emu10k1.

I have tried JAVS UHF nanoS USB DAC. It works, sounds good, but about a 
10 minutes only. After that I must reboot because snd_uaudio does not 
produce any sound.
