    For a moment I thought I was listening to Armin van Buuren ;-)

    Nice mic, but the $100-160 condenser USB market is pretty crowded, with mics which are in some cases much better:
    - Blue Yeti
    - Rode NT-USB & Mini
    - Blue Snowball
    - Audio-Technica AT2020USB+
    - Marantz MPM-2000U
    - Samson Meteor USB

    Plus a large variety of cheaper chinese brands like Tonor for example which make really good USB mics for half the price.

    Not sure why would streamers choose this Elgato/Corsair instead of the much better known and professional oriented brands ?
    At $100 or less, sure... but 160 ?? No freakin' way !

    Those keycaps should be standard :)

    The Microphone sounds quite good, would be nice to hear a comparison between it and some of those posted above and even some of the cheaper brands like Superlux, Tbone etc.

    As far as I recall Marantz didn't include receivers before late 70's, none the less, they are still good amps even if they are that old.
    Also, their valve models from the 60's are worth a little fortune these days.
