Incompatible with Windows 7

Novelty, 27.11.2017
In spite of how this product is being marketed, it is incompatible with Windows 7. The basic driver package, provided via Zoom's website, can be extracted and then installed normally. However, when plugging in the device via USB as per the enclosed manual, Windows returns an error message that driver installation was unsuccessful because the driver is not digitally signed.

I went through a lengthy correspondence with Zoom support and with Thomann, tried various workarounds involving editing of the Windows registry, and finally had to give up. I am running Windows 7, SP1, 64-bit.

Unbeatable for the price

Nicky Name, 26.01.2018
I use the U-22 for occasional demo recordings with the guitar both on the Mac and with an iPad Pro. Both work without software installation, the device is available immediately after plugging.

You can also use it standalone as a headphone amplifier eg directly behind a guitar pedal. And even mobile with batteries.

The sound quality I feel subjectively as very good. Absolutely neutral, noise is not an issue.

The case is relatively large, much wider and thicker than the Zoom recorders. But no matter, that makes the two knobs nice and big, but they do not look very solid. Everything about the device is made of plastic, I would definitely not take it on tour.

The headphone level is barely loud enough for my low-impedance AKG K-44. With high-impedance headphones, it could be too quiet.

The only real downside: The Direct Monitoring can not be mixed continuously, but only by switch to 50/50 or completely off. So you have to set when recording on the PC / iPad the playback level appropriate. But that is often the case with more expensive devices.

Conclusion: It just works. Plug in, get started, stop thinking about it. Had not thought that you get something for less than 50 euros. Of course it's nothing for the professional studio.
