This is not really what your'e asking, but anyway.
The only USB audio (uaudio) device that I have are a pair of speakers,
model J1116U made by, which I also couldn't resist
because the price was so low.
The last time I tried them, i hade FreeBSD 5.2.1-release on my box. Back
then, uaudio devices (at least the combination of my usb cntroller and
my device) had problems with "stuttering" playback, soi the speakers
were put aside.

Nowadays, this machine is running 5.3-stable, so perhaps I should test
the speakers again.
