Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (49 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Poor Firewire recording device."
Sound: This is a follow up. Do not buy this devixe if it mainly used for recording. You will be disappointed. it is flat, lifeless, 1-dimensional at best. It is sad as tis is a great "listening" device. As a firewire recording device I would look at the M-Audio line of Firewire devices. I know this device is only $80, but I have 10 year old sound cards that record way better than this. As a heradphone amp it is fine. Value: Rate it a 9 for listening RAte it a 3 for recording

"Incredible sound, unbelievable value (really!)"
Sound: This thing is The Bomb. My God, does it sound good. It's just so accurate and transparent. And the noise floor is so low that you can't even tell that it's on if there's not something playing! NOTE: If you're using Windows, the FCA202 has to have XP! I made the mistake of buying it, so it sat on the shelf for a while. But I just built a new XP machine, and added this into the mix. Wow, am I glad I did. The FCA 202 is really easy to install, and it SOUNDS WONDERFUL. Feature: I really wish this thing had some MIDI, but at the price for which it sells it would be unfair to mark it down for lacking it. I really like the "ease of use" that the FCA202 has. No fuss, no muss. Just really, really great sound. Ease of Use: Mentioned above. As long as you have XP or Mac OSX and Firewire, I just don't see how you could go wrong. This is different, because lots of times audio cards are tricky and aggrivating to set up on PC's. That's just not a problem with the FCA202, at least it wasn't for me. Quality: A sexy, sturdy box, good connectors, but the volume control feels a tad bit cheap. No big deal, but since everything else is so perfect I notice this little quibble now and then. Value: I think this Behringer audio interface is a dynamite product, with really unusual value for the money. I know this seems like some kind of adoring, "fan club" kind of review, but I swear I am actually very hard to please. The FCA202 just really works well, and it sounds terrific. What more could you ask? Manufacturer Support: Not known. No support was needed. The Wow Factor: This thing is the answer to my prayers. Getting good, really reliable, high quality sound on a Windows PC is hard. The FCA202 delivers. I will consider other Behringer products in the future simply because this one is so great.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
