I looked at the AP2496 running under Win XP. It offers sync to spdif
in as an option. That said there should be no reason that it's
technically impossible to do it under Alsa, presuming that the
technical information is available to the driver maintainer.

There is also an option under XP that should be very interesting to
you if it could be brought to Linux. It is greyed out on my system,
probably because I have a single AP2496, but it says:

MultiTrack Driver Devices
- Multiple Card Sync

Sounds interesting. Maybe do some Googling on that.
