Product Details

Behringer UCA202 2-In/2-Out USB Audio Interface S/PDIF Out

With this ultra-compact, bus-powered interface, a Windows® and Mac® computer can be linked with any audio gear. There is no setup or special driver needed—simply plug the interface into a free USB port on the computer and get into the groove. The UCA202 provides two analog inputs and outputs, as well as an additional S/PDIF optical output for direct digital conversion. This Behringer USB DAC Audio interface solves the common problem with Windows Vista machines that preclude simultaneous analog and digital output. Set your Vista machine for USB audio and this interface will supply simultaneous analog and digital optical S/PDIF. Use a optical to coaxial digital adapter if coaxial digital is required for long digital runs between your computer and your audio system. Behringer's U-CONTROL download area offers a huge software package for recording and editing applications. The UCA202 interface is a complete audio solution that provides connectivity between the analog and digital domain.

Behringer UCA202 2-In/2-Out USB Audio Interface S/PDIF Out
Behringer UCA202 2-In/2-Out USB Audio Interface S/PDIF Out is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good USB DACThe UCA202 is really just a stripped down version of the Behringer USB mixer with an added optical interface. The same codec (PCM2902) is used in both devices. I use this as a DAC with a Raspberry Pi so that I can listen to internet radio stations and FLAC encoded files on my stereo system. My stereo system is McIntosh and this DAC sounds very very good. It easily beats FM broadcast quality.I ran tests on it using a RTA. Frequency response was flat with better than +- .1 db 20hz-20kc, distortion was in the .01 - .007 % range and no measurable intermod distortion. Noise is at least 90db down.A lot of bang for the buck. Looking for a basic DAC that is well built and a solid performer? This is it. Highly recommended

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bang for the buckWorked as advertised with my Win2K machine. Unlike the soundcard output that had an intolerable hum when connected to the stereo, the UCA202 provided good clean sound. Replacing the 22uF coupling caps with higher voltage rated 100uF parts and bypassing them with small value film caps made a worthwhile improvement to the quality of sound from the analog outputs. I have not used the analog input or headphone capabilities yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value, does what it shouldI bought this to use my laptop to DJ a dance. It worked great, sound quality much better than the headphone jack. Easy to install (shows up as a USB speaker). Not a whole lot of fancy software to play with...very basic, but for the $30 I paid right in line with other cheap USB solutions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent for the moneyI purchased this to bypass my computer's sound card and go optical out of the Behringer directly into my Adcom DAC. My soundstage improved, as well as my frequency response (now that the mini-to-RCA cable is out of the picture) I also used it to convert some LP's to .WAV and it seemed to do just fine on this. Be sure to download the drivers from behringer.com...mine would not allow me to record without the driver. My only problem is that I get digital noise or glitches in the audio on a regular basis. This bothers me to no end when doing critical listening of my uncompressed music from my computer. I never had this problem with the analog outs of my sound card. Otherwise, a pretty neat device for a small amount of cash.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive USB DAC solutionNice input and output options. Excellent sound quality - a real step up from using a computer's audio-out. The only negative is a harsh on/off pop when the unit turns on or off, which is common to cheaper DACs.

Preout Voltage?

I am wondering what the voltage is on the rca outputs of this device.
Asked by: SINTORMAN
According to the owners manual, the output is specified as 2dbv, which is equivalent to 1.258925412v. Basically the RMS voltage is about 1.3v The peak to peak voltage is 3.56v Most consumer audio line level is about 2-2.2v RMS, so this devise will seem a little lower in volume. You may have to crank the volume up to compensate, but is may sound more noisy as the THD specification is rated at -10dbv, which is only 1/3v (.3)

Is the S/PDIF out limited to 48 kHz?

or is it independed of the dac? cause if this thing acts as a USB to S/PDIF converter without limiting the sample rate, I'll try it out at that price... use it as a bridge between my Mac and my DAC.Cheers!Tom
Asked by: tommy41
yes, it is limited to 48kHz
