It's not supported by the current version of ALSA (1.0.18a); however, considering it uses the same DSP as the supported DX and D1 it might partially work. The rest of the Xonar line is supported, so there's a good chance support for this card will be added soon.

The Asus AV100 and AV200 are both relabeled CMI8788 (Oxygen HD) chips, as far as I can tell the only difference is DTS encoding (supported by AV200 but not AV100).
