Buy of the week –  Knox Cardioid USB/XLR Microphone

At half the price, this mic looks to be identical to the ATR-2005 which is the #1 mic I recommend for the advanced podcast course. Jonathan Denwood uses the ATR -2005 on the Mail-Right Real Estate Show and WP-Tonic (one of the top WordPress Podcasts).  Click the pic to go to the product on Amazon.

Weakness appear to be the same on this mic as the ATR-2100 and ATR -2005 which is the USB connector on the bottom of the mic.
