Summary: I have 3 of these and just ordered 4 more. The only reason I didn't give five stars is that after two years of daily use two of them now have a bad Phono input, but I can still use the Line input for cassette transfers. So about 700 uses and still going... no brainer, worth every penny.
Summary: Tranferring cassettes to your computer using the Behringer UFO202 is not a problem at all, but how does one add track marks to the program. I used the Audicity software and also the other software that comes with the purchase. No success.
Summary: I purchased a Behringer UFO202 Audio Interface so that I can digitize old vinyl recordings and a few cassette tape recordings. It worked very well, with one exception. The software provided did not allow me to watch the traces on both stereo channels. After downloading the Audacity version 1.3, both channels were displayed properly.
Summary: Behringer UFO202 interface works great. Easy to use and produced perfect results. I used the interface to transfer recordings made with parents several years ago from a micro tape recorder into digital wav files. I suggest that you make sure you read the directions for using the capture software provided closely. Due to my not doing this, I had to re-transfer the recordings. Overall very pleased with the purchase.
Summary: Bought this recorder to transfer/convert some of my old tape collection to MP3 format. Arrived 1 day earlier than expected. Bonus! Hook up was a breeze. Just plug and play. You'll have to download (2) free programs: 'Audacity' to record songs and 'winLAME' to convert the WAV files you create to MP3 format. These programs are SO easy to use (no instructions required) and you'll have a blast converting you're old music collection to the digital age!
Summary: I broke the ribbon connector to the onboard sound on my Mac mini, and this was a time and cost-effective solution. Excellent pro sound, and for a bonus it's input side has a switch selectable phono input. I had another mac mini sound driver fail in software, and rather than mess around too long just bought another one for the other machine. I wish I'd found these when I was back breaking emacs, they're running on usb1.1 and would have fixed that too!
Summary: This is a nice little device. It works fine. Yes, you have to get used to the stock Audacity software, but, for $30 it's great. If you want all the bells and whistles I would recommend the NAD-pp3i. Top of the line parts and easy to use software. If you buy a new car for 13 grand, don't expect it to ride like a BMW M6. "Why doesn't it have custom made software?" If it did, it would cost $50 and you'd say it was too expensive.
Summary: For being at the rock-bottom of the phono preamp price range, the Behringer UFO202 serves its purpose well. When compared to older phono preamps and DJ mixers utilizing transistors and carbon resistors, the Behringer UFO202 is as quiet as can be, so my assumption is that it utilizes quieter op-amps and film resistors, as there is virtually no discernable background noise.
Summary: If I can rate just the interface I would give it 5 stars, but the software package maybe a 1. The interface hooked up easily. In order to listen to the audio while it was being processed, I hooked up my notebook amplified speakers to the headphone jack. Worked like a charm. I did have to get a different program for the audio processing, but I had expected this. I'm using the interface to bring life back to my older vinyl LP's.
Summary: I needed an external soundcard for my PC to rip vinyl, and I'm unlikely to use the "Phono" setting on this, but I wanted it just in case. It took less than five minutes to hook up between my receiver and laptop, and I was editing the first side of an album in less than half an hour. The first record I grabbed was thirty years old, and I didn't need to play with click reduction at all. The recordings sound really terrific and I can't believe this only costs thirty bucks!
