Behringer UCA202 USB Audio interface and linux

Just got one of these nifty devices from the friendly people at MelMusic and it worked first go in Linux.. well the kernel detected it and loaded a driver, took a bit of RTFM to get it playing with gnome desktop via ALSA, but essentially in terms of the driver it was plug and play.

Haven't recorded anything but playback sounds noticably better than the build in motherboard soundcard, even on Logitech multimedia speakers. The 3.5mm headphone out seems to sound a bit tinny compared to the main audio out, but its hard to quantify.

For nerd trivia, here is the dmesg output when plugging it in:

usb 2-4: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 5
input: Burr-Brown from TI               USB Audio CODEC  as /class/input/input3
input: USB HID v1.00 Device [Burr-Brown from TI               USB Audio CODEC ] on usb-0000:00:02.1-4
