Which 5.1/7.1 USB external soundcards are supported by linux?

Hi All,

I have an Acer extensa5510 laptop. Athough it has an intel ich7 high definition soundcard, which -- as far as I know -- can produce multiple channels using the line-in and mic-in connectors as outputs. On my laptop I cannot configure this device to use these outputs.

So, I decided to buy an external soundcard, but I don't know which usb sound devices are supported under linux.

If anyone here uses such a device, please let me know which model it is.
If anyone know about the Terratec Aureon 5.1 USB soundcard being used succesfully under linux, please let me know.

Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

One more thing:

It is said that this Terratec Aureon 5.1 USB soundcard meets the requirements of the USB Audio Class specification version 1.0.
Is that mean that this device can be used/configured via usbsound?
