    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.

    Firstly let me say that as a sound technician, I am a complete audiophile so this comes from very picky ears...

    I had heard about this USB Audio Device from a number of people I know and I really needed a decent sounding audio card for my home PC as the built in ones sound horrible. So I got myself one of these thinking that it would be a little bit of an improvement, but I was blown away by the quality of this little device.

    The Behringer UFO202 is neatly packaged in it's box with the unit itself and two CD-ROMs. The first contains the drivers, whilst the second contains a number of pieces of software which Behringer have decided to throw in with the unit. I expected the software to be pretty naff but was again pleasantly surprised and the Audio recording software is far better than the free alternative that a number of people use now-a-days (Audacity).
    I'd also highly recommend it for people with laptops connect to high quality speakers as the built in audio outputs on your laptop won't be doing your setup justice. Invest in one of these and you won't be disappointed.

    The phono inputs/outputs are brilliant quality and with good quality phono cables you can get some lovely quality Audio. The Input is incredibly clean and I know a number of people who use this for recording from mixing desks.

    For the general user, this is going to be more than you had hoped for and a brilliant device at an absolute steal of a price!
    For the more advanced users and techies looking to record with it, you will again be pleasantly surprised with the audio quality you will be able to get out of this little device.

    A brilliant product from Behringer at a brilliant price!

    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:

    Price.

    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.
