Marshall debuts USB.007

Marshall today added to its MXL computer microphones with the USB.007. Designed for musicians, professional podcasters, and others who want high-quality voice recording, the mic is the first direct-to-digital USB device of its kind to have two large gold diaphragms for capturing sound, according to Electronista. The microphone's electronics produce little ambient noise and are complemented by more recent analog-to-digital converters. The resulting device is a microphone that can match or even beat professional studio microphones while bypassing the need for a mixer or preamp to augment the signal, Marshall boasts. The mic works without a separate power source on any Mac or PC and comes with a desktop stand as well as a wind screen for an ideal recording environment. The 007 will sell for $200 and will likely display at the NAMM expo beginning January 18th.
