Cable

Cable:
"(My mistake was to also order the 'recommendet' cables [Hosa CPR202 Dual 1 4 in to RCA & CMP159 Stereo Breakout 3.5 mm TRS..] as they do not help - in my confg at all]"
_
"I have the uca200 (200 not the 202 coz i see amazon blends the reviews)i have it for 4 years now, barely used it coz it came with my podcastudio (usb)it is TERRIBLE for recording... it gets lots of noise... today a 3.5mm to rca cable that i regularly use with my sound system broke...i replaced it with the uca... mmm what a wasted little artifact!"
_
"It is nice to be able to use a more robust USB cable as opposed to the horrible 3.5mm cables."
_
"If I must complain, I would like it if the USB cord came out from the back and not the side."
_
"I could be a number of things that effect the sound--like cables and such--but I'm sort of disappointed with this product."
_
"I bought a Xlr to dual rca cable for this and am having great success recording electric guitar into Audacity..No noise and worth what i paid for this..I bought one w a blemished box and saved $6...Your going to need rca cables of different configs to use this, i have dual rca to dual rca, xlr to dual rca and dual rca to 3.5 w 1 4 adapters...Love it! "
_
"The cord is a little long for me, but this could very well be a big plus for many other people."
_
"I bought this and and OTG cable for my brand NEW AT&T; Samsung Galaxy NOTE 4 and an OTG cable and it works GREAT!"
_
"I was able to run a 3.5mm to RCA cable from the DAC to a powered sub and get the low bass!"
_
"So I wound up ordering a couple of cables to make it work but I was pleased with the result."

Connection

Connection:
"With the RCAs out, it's nice to be able to connect straight to powered speakers (albeit with an unbalanced connection).The one caveat that leaves me posting a 4 star instead of 5 star should be clarified."
_
"Unfortunately there is a loose connection somewhere near the point where the USB cable enters the case."
_
"I connected the UCA202 to the computer and was recognized immediately, unfortunately it is pre-configured as a MIC."
_
"Yes over $100 but you either want feedback, hiss and frustration or you want a smooth interface connection with good resonance."
_
"I would recommend an isolation transformer for ether amp connection as the computer ground loop (and noise) can be tough to solve otherwise."
_
"Able to connect the toslink connection to my 7.2 surround sound AV receiver for true 7.2 Surround sound."
_
"Well worth the money for anyone who has a laptop that is connecting to a speaker system."
_
"ie=UTF8&psc;=1Once I got this connected it recorded pretty well in Audacity, the level was acceptable and it have only some very slight low level noise."
_
"Better yet, if you have a KVM with USB, whichever computer you're using will now be connected to sound as well."

Connector

Connector:
"I originally bought one of these when the headphone jack on my laptop broke."
_
"I was having problem with headphone jack on Apple iMac."
_
"The mic in jack on most PCs is inadequate for anything except a cheap headset microphone."
_
"jack feels flimsy."
_
"My only complaint is the lack of a strack 1 4 jack in."
_
"HOWEVER, if you decide you want to quickly record your band's set and you connect this to the RCA jacks on the sound board, you will get a nasty ground buzz."
_
"Could not figure out what it was good for...didn't have an RCA jack interface, only optical."
_
"It produces good quality sound transfer through its various connectors."
_
"I was quite leery of the unit at first as I was just running my 2.1 PC speaker set up through the headphone jack on the unit which I thought was a good improvement over the internal DAC on my laptop but, I was not blown away."
_
"A great basic connector."
_
"Recently I noticed some slight scratchiness and traced it to both substandard miniature audio connectors as well as the motherboard sound."

Control

Control:
"If the recording software cannot control the strength adequately (or with enough sensitivity), there will be problems."
_
"To solve this problem you should add a hardware volume control between the source (tape deck turntable) and the UCA-202 (for instance Behringer MON800 MiniMON Stereo Monitor Matrix Mixer - is an overkiller)The ideal would be that the manufacturer change the product adding an input level control as part of the soundcard."
_
"My application does not provide any means to control the signal strength, so it would have been nice to have an interface device with a gain control."
_
"If the recording software cannot control the strength adequately (or with enough sensitivity), there will be problems."
_
"The earphone monitor out with its own volume control works perfectly."
_
"It's good to have to control multiple computer speakers at once! "

Guitar

Guitar:
"Does not work well at all with electric guitar."
_
"For those that made the same mistake here is what worked well for me to hook my guitar up to the unit's left RCA input:RCA To 1 4 Inch TS Adaptor (goes in guitar's TS jack and connects to RCA cable)http: www."
_
"however, it only picks up instruments with resonate really well (i. e. hollow-bodied instruments) Plugging in an electric guitar, and most other instruments though, does NOT work well."
_
"Not sure exactly how to describe it, but just makes the guitar sound cheap and not entirely clear."
_
"playing my guitar directly into my computer mixing program is so easy now."
_
"I bought a Xlr to dual rca cable for this and am having great success recording electric guitar into Audacity..No noise and worth what i paid for this..I bought one w a blemished box and saved $6...Your going to need rca cables of different configs to use this, i have dual rca to dual rca, xlr to dual rca and dual rca to 3.5 w 1 4 adapters...Love it!

Headphone

Headphone:
"I originally bought one of these when the headphone jack on my laptop broke."
_
"Frankly, the iMac's headphone output is just not very good when plugged into a home receiver and this USB interface makes a huge difference."
_
"Weak headphone out."
_
"One problem I thought I would have is the high output impedance on the headphone amp on this device."
_
"Headphone amplifier is weak, doesn't work well with low impedance headphones."
_
"Probably the cheapest, most effective way to connect a variety of headphones and speakers from your computer."
_
"I purchased this device to act as my digital to analog converter for my headphone amp as well as to avoid my onboard sound due to my graphics card emitting a very apparent and annoying whining noise every time it was utilized."
_
"I was quite leery of the unit at first as I was just running my 2.1 PC speaker set up through the headphone jack on the unit which I thought was a good improvement over the internal DAC on my laptop but, I was not blown away."
_
"AND it has a decent headphone quality sound"
_
"(i will keep using my roland duo capture for recording, and this for quick playback )now i seewhy they added the headphone out inthe 202... it reproduce music nicely! "

Microphone

Microphone:
"The mic in jack on most PCs is inadequate for anything except a cheap headset microphone."
_
"max without it being dropped or suffering any physical damage) the interface began producing a humming static-like sound which was extremely annoying I was unsure if whether it was my mixer, this item, or the microphone I was using (Heil PR-40)."
_
"I connected the UCA202 to the computer and was recognized immediately, unfortunately it is pre-configured as a MIC."
_
"The biggest problem with the uca202 is the weird hump below 20hz when using a spl meter or mic."
_
"With Windows 64bit the line-input is missing but there is a Microphone input level you can adjust for the UCA202."
_
"THIS IS THE ONE YOU NEED IF YOU HAVE NO MIC IN STEREO ON YOUR COMPUTER WORKS GREAT AND SOUNDS GOOD..."
_
"I keep it as a useless accessory item along with the behringer xenyx 802 mixer which works perfectly as well though with minor flaws as well as the ( Heil PR-40 ) condenser microphone which I accidentally dropped and hasn't worked properly since."
_
"I love that I could swap around speakers, headphones, microphones, etc."
_
"Here is a thread at avsforum explaining this[...]It does well for 20hz-20khz but if you have a mic thats calibrated from 5hz-20khz then I would look at something else like the Tascam US-144MKII."
_
"I plugged it right on into my Windows 7 64x laptop without a single problem (I did manually update the drivers from the Behringer website, just as a precaution).On Fl Studio 9 it showed up as one of the I O options under the title BEHRINGER USB AUDIO and now my microphone sounds perfecly clear, and so do my mixes."

Mixer

Mixer:
"max without it being dropped or suffering any physical damage) the interface began producing a humming static-like sound which was extremely annoying I was unsure if whether it was my mixer, this item, or the microphone I was using (Heil PR-40)."
_
"I am running my audio through a mixer first, but it seems to work without it just as well."
_
"Turns out I was using my mixer's CD Tape switch incorrectly, thus getting very poor results or excruciating feedback."
_
"everything sounds great, but i recommend using a mixer first because the u-control has weak playback sound out of the built in headphone monitor, but it has an rca output that works as a computer monitor out back to the mixer and then is adjustable (volume) for the headphones on the mixer."
_
"These are great for recording via RCA via live recording from a mixer with RCA out (I've been able to record DJ sets from the mixer straight to my laptop), from a turntable, VCR, tapedeck etc., to convert the analogue signal to digital."
_
"Same phenotype on a linux desktop (Debian testing) and two Windows laptops (so, not some flaky windows driver-related issue), with different mixers and amplifiers connected to the output, and with different RCA cables."
_
"works great for running virtual dj on my laptop to my mixer then amp speakers."
_
"I have a peavey mixer which I'm sure can do all that this can do, but oh well if I can't learn how to operate it I guess I'll give it to one of my electronic minded grandchildren if they'd be interested in having it."

Monitor

Monitor:
"The only negative thing I have to say is the monitor switch on the back doesn't seem to do anything, but honestly that could just be user error."
_
"Also, the monitor on the device is terrible."
_
"When you try to monitor with this device, it's not a good idea."
_
"However, if you're just looking for simple input and output and aren't running it to a good set of monitors or doing serious recording, then this will do just fine."
_
"everything sounds great, but i recommend using a mixer first because the u-control has weak playback sound out of the built in headphone monitor, but it has an rca output that works as a computer monitor out back to the mixer and then is adjustable (volume) for the headphones on the mixer."
_
"The earphone monitor out with its own volume control works perfectly."
_
"My audio is now punchier, cleaner and more pleasing through my near-field studio monitors than it was before."
_
"I also love the built in Monitor and adjustable volume feature to use with headphones; that has also been a tremendous help."
_
"The Monitor input for 3.5mm headphones works wells and gives you a live feed of what the recording sounds like before editing."
_
"That is right, get a 1 4 in to rca cable and plug from your headphone out on your amp into the UCA 202 RCA input and click the monitor switch 'on' that is found on the UCA 202 and you will be able to hear your tone sound exactly like it will on audacity as it is being recorded!"

_
"The only other thing that is a legit complaint is that playback is a bit noisy and hissy in the headphones if you have the headphones turned up high."
_
"I'm very happy with this device, I simply use it for headphones since my regular headphone jack on my PC broke, but I have an issue with popping and clicking noises while playing music, and I'm not sure why this occurs."
_
"Amazingly, the hum noise completely went away."
_
"Wow, it has a nice low noise floor on analog, bass is good."
_
"This inexpensive little piece of hardware cleaned all that noise up at a pretty damn reasonable price."
_
"A bit limited by 48kHz but excellent signal to noise gives far better dynamic range than ordinary simple soundcards."
_
"Edit: I've owned this for about a year now, and after buying a nicer set of headphones, I've started to notice noise during quiet parts of music, or with nothing playing at all."

Performance:
"Does what it says, not pro, but very good performance."
_
"Audio performance is a chain - it's no better than the weakest link in the system."

Plug:
"Setup is dead simple as it is a plug and play device."

Stereo:

_
"I am not able to run the 202 directly through my big stereo rig, but it sounds pretty damn good on my $80 Grado headphones."

_
"I use pro-audio interfaces for recording on other machines (M-Audio 610 and Presonus Firebox) but didn't want to buy something like that just to get decent stereo output."

"If you turn the sound volume up loud enough, you hear the glitches and buzzes of interference(but hey, people pay to get into clubs that play those sounds), by I'm not sure that this is endemic to all USB interfaces(having heard it in various USB products)."

"I was able to listen at high volume without the ear fatigue that comes from distorted audio."
_
"The earphone monitor out with its own volume control works perfectly."
_
"good interface I guess, but cannot get any volume out of it."
_
"I contacted Behringer by email and they got back to me the next day, suggesting that I purchase a small audio mixer to be able to adjust the volume to a higher level."
_
"I also love the built in Monitor and adjustable volume feature to use with headphones; that has also been a tremendous help."
