Hi Rob,

It looks nice ; see
for a large picture so you can read the labels on the machine, and 
for some text.

It supports 24-bit operation at 44.1kHz and 48kHz, and runs without 
additional power (besides the USB power).

I own their US428 machine, that is somewhat a different machine, but 
also features USB and XLR, TRS mic input and TRS and SPDIF input and 
output. Nice thing is you can monitor directly after the preamp.

But I have never seriously tested its ADC's and DAC's ; never had the 
need to use them, I use it as a MIDI/WAV controller that happens to 
have a ADC and DAC built in.
I do know that TASCAM put great effort in keeping EMI and EMC out of 
their housing, take a look at this site to see how well they care 
about electronical design ;

Regards, Evert
