Acousti-Shield Stories September 3, 2015

Upgrade your podcast game: Audio-Technica AT2020USB+ mic & CAD Acousti-Shield $149 shipped ($244 value)

Adorama is once again offering its Audio-Technica mic combo deal, but this time for even less. You can grab the Audio-Technica AT2020USB+ Cardioid Condenser USB Microphone with a CAD Audio Acousti-Shield 32 Stand Mounted Acoustic Enclosure for $149 shipped. Combining both items, that’s about $130 under the original listings, nearly $100 under the current Amazon prices for both the mic and shield, $10 under our last mention on this bundle and the best we can find.

This USB condenser mic is definitely an upgrade in quality over your built-in options. It supports 16 bit, 44.1/48 kHz A/D conversion and houses a helpful headphone jack for direct monitoring. It has received a 4.5/5 star rating from over 80 Amazon customers.

As I mentioned previously, even with a good mic the sound of your room can still ruin your recordings, and an acoustic shield is a great way to combat those nasty early reflections. This is a compact perforated stainless steel shield that is perfect for starter musicians and podcasters. This model has a 4.2/5 star rating from over 110 Amazon customers.
