Summary: I bought the Behringer UFO202 in order to use it as a "Line in" for my Win XP Toshiba Laptop and convert old analog recordings to digital.

Excerpt: I'm ripping my old LP's. Any sounds/voices that are distinctly left or right channel are virtually lost using the USB adapter; that sound is way in the background. The stereo sounds mixed and centered, not like the original. In all fairness, I have the same problem using the StarTech capture cable that I bought previously. I bought this in the hope that it would work better, but ... I ended up burning the LP's to CD on a CD recorder, then ripping the CD in my PC.
