You were right about the power button when I did it and tested the sound
system using kde it worked but only through the front port (headphones jack)
I wish to use the rear ports (for 5.1) the /dev/sndstat says it's capable
but I am unaware of how to activate it.

Yes it's USB 2.0 but it requires some sort of vendor specific signal, in
windows you just install the drivers and it activates the Hi -speed option
this also allows 24-bit sound processing. Also should install some sort of
OSS, like 4Front Technologies OSS.
