  • Summary: A wonderful solution to record a quick audio project. I have used it with the following XLR microphones: SM58, 57 & Audio Technica AT2035 large diaphragm; In all instances the sound was very clean. Now because of the ease of use I will no longer be using my computers built mic.

  • Summary: This USB adapter from Shure has proven to be a very good and useful device. It is very solidly built, works quite well, has many features, and no flaws which I could find. There are very few items I find which deserve 5 stars, and this qualifies hands down.

Works well for podcasting

20 February 2011
  • Summary: Length:: 2:28 Mins I do a lot of podcast so this will be a good thing for me to use in the future. I figured out the turning my sound card input gain structure down almost all the way and hitting the preamp as hard as I could gave the best signal to noise ratio.

I am using 64-bit Vista, and I have had no problems at all with hiss. I wonder if this might happen more with condenser microphones, but I have none to test.

This preamp packs a punch

  • Summary: I dont understand how many people complain about hiss. I have used this mic for well over a year and have had no problems with hiss. I give this item 4 stars because its obviously not the best preamp you can get, but its well worth the buy.
