Why trying to shoe-horn that thing into unsuitable hardware?
I'd just go with one of the other embedded boards that are not much more
expensive and will actually get you sensible results.
BeagleBone with Audio cape
I hear there is a new BeagleBone coming that might actually have all on
board for a price in the ballpark of the oA13 board.
USB audio combined with embedded hardware (and especially the RPi with
its known problematic USB) is a recipe for sub par results.
