Good decision

After some research I've decided to go with this product price wise and I can tell you I don't regret my decision.

The interface was instantly recognized in my linux setup and quick test was done using the Rode M2 mic hooked via XLR cable using Audacity for recording.

Everything worked as expected, no noticeable popping, hissing or anything strange picked up beside my voice.

Direct monitoring works well with headphones (I don't have proper studio grade ones, that's to be tested). Also ordered twin jack to rca cable here to hook up the interface to a good quality monitor, have a feeling it will work well.

If this Behringer would ever get lost or damaged I would buy another one as this is a great solution with the much needed phantom power for all your quality condenser mics.
