Hi Peter,

I also have a USB sound device which wouldn't detect until I loaded 
snd_uaudio. Now I can play my CDs through my 5.1 system, but I had to 
install both OSS and eSound to do it. I think the idea is everything 
goes to eSound, which is piped through the OSS mixer.

My sound device now identifies [on FreeBSD 6.3-PRERELEASE] as:
uaudio0: vendor 0x0c45 USB Audio, rev 1.10/1.00, addr 2
uaudio0: audio rev 1.00
pcm0: <USB Audio> on uaudio0

which is every bit as dull as yours.

By the way I don't have a /dev/dsp either. It doesn't seem to be required.
