  1. Hi Everyone! Apologies if this is a totally noob question, but as I have realised in the past few weeks, I am a total noob when it comes to A/V and mics. Anyway, a few weeks back I bought a condenser microphone (along with a stand, etc etc) to use for recording, however didn't realise at the time that condenser mics require phantom power to run. I'm now in the process of looking for a phantom power supply, however I stumbled across the Behringer U-PHORIA UM2 (which is apparently a USB audio interface) which provides phantom power. My question for the experts here, is whether this USB powered audio interface / mixer / preamp ... uhhh... thing, will allow me to use my microphone, and whether it will then also allow me to record via the USB output of the device. I'll drop a link to the manufacturer's website in case anyone wants to check the specs, honestly they fly over my head! http://www.music-group.com/Categories/Behringer/Computer-Audio/Audio-Interfaces/UM2/p/P0AVV Apologies for how stupid this question must seem, I'm just rapidly discovering I have no clue what I am doing and just want to get my mic working without spending a mammoth amount of money on top of what I have already spent. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me! Best wishes Cipher
  2. I've been wondering if i just get a condenser mic with a phantom power connected directly to my pc will the volume be to low? my knowledge on audio equipment is very low sorry if this is real dumb, still trying to learn

  4. Help? Streaming Lossless Audio

    Hey guys, I'm new here and to the audiophile scene so I have some questions. There's just so much information out there and I'm just having a hard time navigating it all to find the answer I'm looking for. I recently purchased some M-Audio BX8 Studio Monitors and along with it a Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interface, which hooks up to the monitors and converts my digital music to analog (right?) I play all of my music from my laptop but that requires a usb connection from my audio interface to my computer. My question is: is it possible to buy some sort of wireless device to plug into my audio interface so that I can stream lossless music wirelessly from my computer to the device through my audio interface to my speakers? For example, I've been Googling and stumbled onto these: Aperion Audio's Wireless, Lossless Music System - "HAL" One, for these I would need a female usb connector to connect it to my audio interface, which it apparently doesn't have and two, it seems excessive to have something plugged into your computer AND audio interface to stream lossless music. Any suggestions? I'd really appreciate it! Andres
  5. I just can't seem to find much basic information on how to use an audio interface to rip vinyl. Any info I come upon seems to be over my head. Does anyone know of a basic tutorial or primer you could point me to? I'd ask specific questions, but at this point, I don't really know enough to know what I don't know! Right now, my general concerns are exactly to look for in an interface and how to hook it up to my system. And I mean I need it in very basic terms! I'm not looking for "the best" interface but something probably in the lower price categories that will do a proficient job, just in case you've got any specific recommendations.
