I use direct connection. What application can I use to specify sample
rate? ffpmeg, mplayer?

Yep. This is how I was testing.

Yep. I am following that thread. Sounds very promising.

Yep. I will test it for sure. I have 2 N900. Need to repair one of
them (well-known problem with USB/power socket hardware) and will
install Nemo there.
