"Spectacular Sound! Is it SM7B or RE20 Quality? Damn Close!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
You need a booster. Klark Teknik for $29, can't be beat. The Triton, and Cloud Booster are to expensive. I don't notice a difference between them. I own two RE-20's and they are superb for voice-over and podcasting, but so expensive! The dynamic differences between the RE-20 and the PD70 are extremely subtle! The PD-70 Price point, and sound makes this a huge competitor. I've been using it for about a week now and it requires very little post processing. Get one, it'll make you proud I promise!
