I did that - this version works well for me. Thanks for your efforts!

(There is a minor glitch persistent that wasn't existing with
  my older AC97 based hardware: When pausing an AC3 stream
  to the amplifier, then resuming the playback, there is a loud
  "click" in the beginning as if there was a broken data packet
  sent to the amplifier - but one with a correct checksum, that
  has to be, as otherwise, the amplifier would not have played
  it. Or maybe the amp is misinterpreting some AC3 data as being PCM,
  but that wasn't the case with the previous audio card, though
  the software and the amp were the same.)
