Default Behringer and Focusrite

There are two newer USB audio inerfaces.
BEHRINGER U-PHORIA UMC202
and
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 2 In/2 Out USB Recording Audio Interface

Which one would be better for using with ARTA and other similar software ?
I'm expecting someone to have tried them already.
Thanks.

I have the 2i2, but not the umc202. If you have any other questions or want any other measurements let me know.

Thanks for those measurements Nyt.
I didn't check the thread for a while. Looks like no one with the UMC202HD has responded. I guess someone must be using it ?
It looks like the Focusrite is a shade more expensive than the Behringer.
The UMC202HD goes up to 192Khz. The Focusrite is 96K hz .
Strangely I don't see any specifications for the Behringer anywhere ! Like just a vague 'super mic preamp' designed by Midas. No numbers.

Hope someone with the UMC202HD will post their experience with this unit. Behringer claims it's 'built like a tank' !
