Indeed, even with the built-in phantom power it is. The Hi-Z switch is
also very handy; and it has pretty good pre-amps. On top of that the
device is very robust. All in all it's IMHO one of the best /cheap/
sound-cards.

Compared to the UA-25 the UA-25 EX CW also includes an analog
compressor. Given that it only has one knob (for the threshold), I doubt
it's very useful. FWIW the limiter on the UA-25 is similarly useless.
The new ground-Lift feature seems handy, though.

~2 years ago it only worked in "Advanced Mode" with Linux ;) - I never
flicked that switch to off.

It works with `jackd ... -r48000 -p64 -n3` ~4ms latency; `jdelay`
reports 440 frames@48kSpS round-trip without x-runs.
