[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ aplay -l | head -2
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: HDSPMx579bcc [RME AIO_579bcc], device 0: RME AIO [RME AIO]
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ LANG=de_DE.utf8 aplay -l | head -2
**** Liste der Hardware-Geräte (PLAYBACK) ****
Karte 0: HDSPMx579bcc [RME AIO_579bcc], Gerät 0: RME AIO [RME AIO]
