I'm a musician and singer/songwriter who has recorded in home studios of varying quality and price for years. I currently have a Pro Tools setup on my main music computer but I bought the Yeti Pro because I wanted an easy, portable solution to use with Garageband on my laptop in order to record parts with other musicians on various songs. I have to confess I was skeptical about the quality of a USB mic, but after using it tonight, I may not ever go back to my analog mics. I recorded vocals and acoustic guitar directly from the mic to my laptop with no preamp and the sound is crisp, clear, and brilliant, and captures the nuance in my vocal performance as well over the complete spectrum.* It's also heavy and solid feeling, and gorgeous to boot. If you don't need a professional recording, this mic is probably pricey and not necessary. But for professional podcasters and particularly recording musicians, I can't recommend this mic more, and it's a steal at this price.

I bought these speakers at the beginning of last summer and I am pleased beyond belief. I have a deck that is very large and I have these speakers placed ~28 feet apart. The soundstage is beautiful. The base response is outstanding. My wife and I now want to spend all our time out on the deck. Last week we were cleaning our woods behind the house and we played Buffet all afternoon. We were ~50 feet from the deck and I felt like I was at an outdoor concert. All I can say is "WOW"! You will not be disappointed
