The Behringer U-Control UCA202 is an inexpensive (~25 EUR) small USB sound card that I bought when my older M-Audio Transit USB wasn’t working well on my Seagate GoFlex Home. I’m also planning to use it on my Buffalo WZR-HP-AG300H WiFi router. This blog post documents some of its features and tests.

This sound card doesn’t need any drivers for Win, Mac or Linux. The built in TI PCM2902E Audio Chip is supported by the major operating systems.

I took a couple of photos of the hardware. You can see them in my Picasa Album Behringer U-Control UCA202.

You can use lxsndtest on Linux based computers to test the performance and quality of your soundcard. You should read its user guide for help on installation and usage.

lxsndtest ist based on the older xsndtest (which you can compile using some hints from this build formula for Gentoo).

You may use speaker-test to check your speakers.
