Behringer USB soundcard
Has anyone had any experience with this:  http://www.behringer.com/UCA202/index.cfm?lang=ENG

I wonder what the quality is like?  I've had ups and downs with Behringer equipment.

Looks like it has 48 kHz only and no S/PDIF input. I have no idea about the DA conversion quality, but I wouldn't expect too much.

You may want to consider the real thing instead (I think Behringer has copied some of the external design):

Edirol UA-1EX:

- natively 32/44.1/48/96 kHz (in & out)
- S/PDIF (in & out)
- supposedly high quality DA & AD converters. (Can anyone confirm this?)

The Behringer unit does 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, and 48 kHz @ 16-bit. They kept it at 16-bit to be able to do full duplex under USB1.0.

On a side not, if you're (dreamliner77) considering a USB audio interface consider this: E-MU 0202 USB2.0. Can be had for $130 online. It seems like a great deal for what it features.

I'm not really considering a USB device right now, but I thought for short cash, having a couple of the Behringers around the project studio might be a good idea.

Ive had the UCA202 for a little while now and I am very happy with it. For $30 its a nice alternative to internal soundcards in laptops etc.
