I thought that I remembered that the Midiman Audiophile 2496 had been working with spdif for a while for me at least, though I have the dat on the Delta 1010 in the music room now.
I know that there was a lot of ups and downs with the drivers and spdif at first.
I did have to cook up my own .asoundrc for it, but that's kind of expected with a mutichannel chip being used on a simple card.
