Value For Money : Excellent
The UA-5 Has my first purchase for my pro card and it needs dpart trs well served its purpose. Its connectivity is trs complte and in fact a small home studio all in one: two XLR in facade allow the use of a microphone (48V phantom power and prampli) and even a guitar thanks to slecteur of impdance. There is another from the rear strro CAR and finally a range of e / s numrique, optical and coaxial.

The design and manufacturing quality are excellent, like the vast majority of products from Edirol.

I used this module with a 1GHz Athlon PC under Win2000 without any problem.


Installation is fairly simple.

However, unlike what a USB connection would suggest, it is not advisable to remove and reconnect hot) If the UA-5 n'tait not on the PC before dmarage It is not possible to use it half the time!
Another complaint: even if this card is 24bit/96kHz the gre with certain limitations, we can only play or record this resolution (by turning the knob fate that effect), but not simultanment two ... It has never worked since I drang in 16/48, but probably annoy the most demanding.
Finally, the UA-5 Submitted incompatibility with some of the VIA chipset.


The drivers are well made trs, it comes with ASIO drivers and WDM drivers are efficient trs, which rjouira cakewalk Sonar users. This gives a latency of 8ms painless.


I do possde over this card, I replaced it with a couple Terratec EWS88 a mixer, my home studio s'angrandissant.

But I t trs satisfied, it is little but she does well. The power supply and prampli Fatme Intgr particulirement are practical for a microphone or a guitar.

The USB format has its advantages and inconvnients ...

I loved particulirement its manufacturing quality and look.

I had bought 370 euros new, which I think is a good quality price.
