FWIW, I suspect that ALSA might have the edge, as reaper then has exclusive access to device, with JACK there might be other clients and there is some code overhead.
It is definitely confirmed that ALSA has the edge with CPU cycles. The developers themselves have confirmed that JACK uses more CPU cycles than ALSA alone. But they strongly affirm that JACK itself causes no latency. So ALSA definitely has the edge in that area. :-)
