Well, this statement is not quite accurate.  A full-speed isochronous
device uses a larger percentage of a full-speed controller's available
bandwidth than a high-speed device uses of a high-speed controller, but
having a full-speed device on a high-speed controller doesn't have any
more impact than a high-speed device of the same rate.

Further, it's quite possible to have a USB Audio 1.0 device run at high
speed, as long as your isochronous interval is not smaller than 1 per
