    I bought one of these to act as a digital-to-analogue converter when sending music data from an external hard drive to a stereo amplifier and speakers. The DAC itself is a Burr Brown chip manufactured by Texas Instruments, and while it is not of audiophile quality its output is a big step up from that of the Realtek sound card in my netbook. To improve on the UCA202 you have to start spending serious money. The law of diminishing returns quickly kicks in.

    The UCA202 takes its data from line-in phono (RCA) sockets or via USB. Windows XP and Mac OS X were quick to recognize it, but I had to do some tweaking to get Amarok to play along under Xandros Linux on an Asus Eee PC.

    There are three outputs. The first is digital, a Toslink socket carrying an S/PDIF ("Sony/Philips Digital Interconnect Format") signal. If you have an amplifier or receiver with an optical input, this is the one to use, since it's odds on the DAC in your amp/receiver will be better than the UCA's.

    The other two outputs are analogue. A switched, standard female 3.5 mm socket is designed principally for monitoring using headphones, while stereo analogue signals to your amplifier (etc.) should be taken from a pair of phono sockets. You will need to supply your own paired male phono to male phono lead. Such leads are often supplied when you buy a stereo component like a CD player or tuner. When I first hooked up the UCA I used a basic, bog-standard lead. Then I tried some audiophile interconnects I made myself and was surprised how much better the UCA performed, a testament to its quality. Playing FLAC files from foobar2000 or Amarok, even into my relatively modest system, the results are impressive.

    Physically, the UCA is small and neat, and the integral USB cable is a reasonable length.

    I purchased this box as a replacement for an external SB Audigy box which had gone faulty. My requirements are simple, I just need good quality stereo capture for archiving my Vinyl collection, and this little box does exactly that, with out the complexity of 5.1 surround sound etc. Worked first time out of the box, and I was up and running on my Sony laptop in minutes, it works with both direct connection and ASIO drivers. Another big plus is that it is self powered off the USB bus, no external power supply.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I needed - works happily in Linux 21 July 2009
    Does exactly what it is supposed to do - provide an alternate sound path via a usb connection. Haven't tried to the input sound, just the outputs which sound fine to me. The unit is small, light, comes with a decent length of cable and works fine in Linux.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money 22 May 2009
    Of course this ain't the highest quality stuff, but try getting sth of similar quality whithin this price range! I use this card with pianoteq and latency (set to 9.8 on my laptop) is low enough to feel the piano just right.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the price 26 Oct 2012
    Verified Purchase
    I got this A/I to replace my laptop's onboard soundcard/vistasound drivers, which sounded dreadful and had totally unacceptable levels of latency. I was on a very tight budget to get my studio set up and at £22, this was the cheapest device I could find that supported ASIO, which is the minimum requirement for digital recording, really. It's served me really well though; here are the plus points:


    Quality. A quantum leap forward compared to the onboard laptop soundcard.

    Ease of use. Plug and play, worked right away.

    Compatibility. Have had zero issues with any music creation software.

    Size. Space is a consideration in my studio, this doesn't take up any (I actually have it secured to the wall with a couple of picture hooks)

    So if it's so good, why upgrade. The downers:

    Bit Depth/Sample Rate 16/48. With increased file storage/download speeds, tripling file size is no longer the concern it once was. 24/96 is the standard.

    Latency. Still getting latency, not a showstopping amount, but enough to require slight adjustment of the waveform when printing MIDI, for example.

    No MIDI in/out

    No dedicated Mic input.

    Weak monitoring.

    All of the points above are what you'd expect from an A/I in the £100 - £150 price range, not the under £25 price range. Reading other reviews, the best use for it is as a connection between a laptop and a hi-fi rig, or to convert analogue to digital. Doesn't quite fit the bill for home digital recording, but was a good makeweight until I could afford a quadruple (at least) cost replacement.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Works well. 22 Nov 2010
    By 405line
    Hello, I've been using one of these UCA202's for about 3 years now and this little gadget works a whole lot better than the £20-30 quid would suggest, its not a Heath-Allen mixing desk but it can IMHO playback and record a very merry tune, it has a headphone output with a voloume control and a TOSLINK (optical s/pdif)output which you can use to connect to an external DAC or digital recorder etc.

    Plays mp3 &CD's with the same quality as several hundred £££'s DACS as far as can tell and it appears to enjoy playing music, seems to play music with a smile on its face.The few cassette transfers I have done using Audacity have been as good as can be expected.

    A must for anyone wanted to connect their computer to a sound system/HiFi cheaply and most definitely cheerfully.I think the key to this device's excellent sound maybe is its' internal simplicity, not being chock full of components, be they expensive or cheap ones may have its own sonic rewards methinks.
