I looked at the many options for Mic's and decided on the At2020, I do not regret that decision. Great Mic for the price, super easy to setup. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because it does not come with an XLR cable. If you are looking at buying this mic don't forget to buy an XLR cable because you need one. The sound is very clear and nice sounding. Totally beats other mics in the same price range.
