Hey there Head-Fi!
So I've been looking for a nice Microphone to use for online commentating and online videos in general. I've narrowed down my search to the Audio-Technica AT2020. Now some of you may know that there are two versions of this microphone. One that is USB, and the other that relies on an XLR cable.
My question is: Are XLR and USB comparable options in terms of sound quality? I've given myself a budget of $200 for a complete recording rig. Microphone, stand, pop filter and shock mount. Now I know that XLR microphones need pre amps to work. So I'll need to buy one in the case of taking the XLR option.
Anyway, what are your suggestions?
