Quite frankly, I'm not fully aware about known issues with these
devices that need attention. Could you summarize which problems are
left to look at?

Wow, that's quite an offer, I'm impressed. However, I would really
only need a device during development to hook it up to an USB analyzer
and have a look at the dumps. And having access to one would
definitely speed up development. Once the issues are fixed, though, I
can give it back to you or to someone else who actually uses the
device afterwards - I've got enough sound interfaces around here  :)

Plus .. it might take me awhile until I can actually start debugging
this, as I'm drowning in work.

I'll send you my postal address in PM.
