That’s for the one spending the money to decide. Is it recomended to use the headphone output from uca as source to avoid to high voltage input to the e5 amp ore the line output.. But what if you reference the phase shift of all of the frequencies to say, 1khz instead of the input? I do notice that doesn’t have as high a voltage swing as I’d like for my hds, but I don’t notice any distortion. Behringer is marketing this as a portable recording interface for musicians, so we want to know how well it works in its intended application.

Problem with Behringer UCA | Headphone Reviews and Discussion –

I believe it’s possible to spend a lot less and not hear a difference in blind testing. Essentially it’s not that difficult to subtract the input to an amplifier from the output while it’s driving real speakers playing real music.

But if you are happy with the sound from your laptop no bad noises, it gets loud enough, etc.

An amp only needs to do at least as good of job as the best DAC. Then have some volunteers stand behind the speakers and swap the cable plugs back and forth at the request of the card-carrying audiophiles doing the listening.

Switched to behringsr big Crown power amp Behhringer had lying around, and the Polks sounded clean as a whistle through that passage. Ferongr March 1, at 7: But with higher impedance efficient headphones it still sounded decent.


For better or worse, Behringer has changed an entire industry. Sean March 1, at 1: NwAvGuy March 2, at 9: Personally, the only thing I would like to see is channel separation tests for the line output.

Anonymous October 30, at 8: Interestingly, however, the actual amplifier circuitry of the Behringer was very different than the Alesis so the clone accusations beyond the front panel were myth rather than fact. The USB interface and clock design can really make a significant difference.

Hope it is ok with a anonymous I just want to say, you are doing a great service here. Mackie, for example was was forced to move their manufacturing to Asia, update their products, and radically drop their prices to stay in the game. As for the mythical “IEC ohm” headphones, do you have an example of an audiophile-grade semi-popular current production headphone that specifically states it’s designed for a ohm output impedance?

TJ May 7, at 8: If the noise changes or goes away, it’s possible a powered hub may solve the problem. I’m a hard rock fan and I’m not looking for a precision instrument dessecting the music.

NwAvGuy August 15, at 7: In the review, you say about power supply noise “especially for a device running from famously noisy USB power” and “The power supply looks to be reasonably well filtered.

Traf March 4, at 1: Both of these tend to reduce channel separation. I’m not aware of any. Sometimes, I hate to say, it’s out brain playing tricks on us.

Moving to the headphone output, things were not as simple. When I played itunes using the Fii0 d3 and then switched to Win 7 Media Center to watch a film, there was a loud continuous break up and static noise.

How about extremely low levels:. NwAvGuy January 17, at 8: But what if you reference the phase shift of all of the frequencies to say, 1khz instead of the input?

What format if the digital audio meant to be PCM stereo? Once the transient response is clean and free of ringing or being over damped, and if the phase shift is less than about 2 degrees from 50 hz – 10 Khz, the “detail” and “imaging” are probably as good behringeg they’re going to get.

Many years ago Behringer came out with what looked like a clone of a popular power amplifier used in recording studios—The Alesis RA
