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.
BeagleBoardXM
BeagleBone with Audio cape
Olinuxino A13
...

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.

Cheers

Thomas
