Really? It's the opposite for me. The U-24 captures audio with absolutely zero detectable noise, it is noticeably quieter than anything else I have used. Output-wise, I've never noticed a difference between any of the dozen or so I've owned, apart from a couple of really cheap ones that were a bit noisy. I think they probably all use the same DACs.
My main gripe though was that it didn't want to work properly with my little MAudio midi interface - created a nasty unusable latency. It was ok if I plugged the midi geetar in via USB though. It did this when I tried it with both laptop and desktop.
Also weird, in that mine is plugged into a hub with my Analog Keys and Roli controller and it runs fine at ridiculously low latency.
It makes me wonder if the U22 doesn't use different components to the U24 (and U44)?
