That's all we need in this case, though. We need to get Paula audio in in stereo, and mix it with the decompressed audio.
This is what I mean when I say the AHI driver will be very limited - it will only be two channels (or alternatively, more with software mixing).
The Prisma is a music card - when you're doing stereo music, you only need two channels usually - I would never expect a codec decoder chip like this to support hardware mixing of digital streams. That's the domain of sound cards.
