What You Will Get:

You will receive a USB cable. 

And, as far as build-quality goes, this thing is a huge improvement over the Behringer UM series unlike the UM 2s, which have an all plastic chassis, 

Behringer U-Phoria UMC204HD has an all metal chassis, and it just feels much sturdier.

The dials all feel really nice and they're not loose at all, and the input jacks do not move around either.

The interface consists of two XLR combo jacks that accept XLR or 6.3 millimeter inputs. 

The next thing you'll notice are the controls for inputs 1 and 2 on the top. 

You'll also notice a button that allows you to choose between instrument and line level. 

Obviously, you'll have this set for instrument if you're plugging in a guitar, and it'll be set for line if you're plugging in a microphone. 

If you connect a microphone, the next thing you'll notice is a pad activation button, which unfortunately does not list the amount of pad that this offers. 

After that, you'll notice two indicator lights, the first of which is a clip indicator light - which will obviously illuminate to let you know that your signal is too loud and you're clipping, and the second - which is a signal indicator light, which will simply tell you that the microphone is sending a signal to your interface input.

The first thing you'll notice on the mix segment of the interface is a stereo or mono button - which will obviously allow you to output either a stereo or a mono signal. 

Next, you'll notice the mix dial, which allows you to adjust the amount of zero monitoring and how much of the computer's playback audio you hear.

Then, you'll find the MIDI in/out indicator lights which will tell you if you're sending a MIDI signal-out or receiving a MIDI signal-in.

Then you also have the main out volume control which will control the main output from the back of the interface.
You will find a USB port that allows you to connect this to your computer, a set of midi input/output ports, a 48-volt phantom power switch to turn-on or off phantom power.

The device has a 24-bit bit depth, a sampling rate of 44.1 through 192 kilohertz, and a 48-Volt phantom power supply.
After downloading the drivers from Behringer comm, and connecting the interface directly to a Windows 10 PC, the voltage of the phantom power was hitting around 46 volts – which is pretty close to the expected 48 volts.

It should work with most if not all condenser microphones.

Overall, I think this is a pretty good budget interface. 

I like how the midis preamps are pretty quiet all the way up to 60 percent and still pretty usable all the way up to 85 or 90 percent, and I also think the i/o on this interface is very impressive for the $80 price tag.

Behringer U-PHORIA UMC203HD Usage Tips:

  • Install the Older version of the driver - rather that the driver from Behringer's website - the latest drivers are faulty.
  • For the best result,... Connect your Microphone or instrument directly into the interface at 44.1 Watt - instead of the 48 Watt phantom power, and set the gain at about 45 percent; you can boost it a little bit in post production.
