Just a late followup to this thread: over on the ecasound-user mailing
see this post:
... in which Bery Rinaldo has just successfully synced two Delta 
1010LT's by connecting them via S/PDIF.  

He was not able to get wordclock sync working, I don't know if
that's a driver issue or a config issue; but for now, sacrificing the
S/PDIF output on one card and S/PDIF input on the second card seems a
reasonable workaround. You still get 16 analog inputs plus the S/PDIF
input on the first card.  Pretty good bang-for-buck.
