I thought that the M-audio USB Audiophile was totally unsupported under the 2.6 kernel due to its lack of documentation and totally mangled, non-standard USB implementation. I know that about 1 or 2 years ago I had to sell mine for that very reason and in the past the feedback from the Jack folks was fairly deragotory with respects to using a USB interface at all.

Lee is right. The problem is due to the big-endianess of the device.
The latest version of JACK includes a fix for this.
However, if you can't afford changing your Jack version, you can use
the Alsa "plug" work-around: just use plughw:1,0 for the Analog Output
and plughw:1,1 for the Analog Input instead of hw:1,0 and hw:1,1.
Note that if you're recording from the Analog Input without any valid
Digital Signal plugged on your SPDIF input you should use a kernel with
Alsa >= 1.0.11. It includes a patch that will help you correctly
initialize the device.
