I recently purchased the nice box for the Ensemble RXTX from the KM5H store and it does make it into a very professional looking little software defined radio.
The audio labels are ambiguous, "line in" means "this connection goes to your line in". There is an amazing bit of python/C software called Quisk that can be used to control the Ensemble.
Here it is receiving a station from Kuwait (I'm in Sydney by the way).
To get this working on Ubuntu 12.04, I did try using the install from the Ubuntu software centre but I couldn't get it to talk to USB so I ended up simply downloading the software, doing a 'make', and running it from the command line.
Quisk comes with a config file preset for the Ensemble RXTX at quisk-3.6.2/softrock/conf_rx_tx_ensemble.py which I copied to ~/.quisk_conf.py and edited to point the audio to my creative USB external sound device.
Ah... this is what you get up to?? Well done I like it. Amazing stuff.
Well, it seems so simple.
I dowloaded the zip
unzipped in Home
edited the conf
placed it in ~/.
run the make
and then quisk:
Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: No module named wxnot giving up though.

Sorry you ran in to trouble there. The problem is that you don't have wxPython installed on your machine - I must have had it from some other software dependency.
sudo apt-get install python-wxgtk2.8
