DPA microphones are known for their reference-quality clarity, providing accurate sonic reproduction. At this year’s NAB, the company has announced an addition to its d:facto line, in the form of an interview microphone. Like your typical handheld interview mic, it boasts an omnidirectional polar pattern, giving you freedom of movement while interviewing. DPA has employed a number of wind and handling-noise suppression techniques to help the mic be as quiet as possible in the field.  Please check back for pricing and availability.

In broadcasting, it seems there is always a debate as to what kind of microphone is best to use—dynamic or condenser. Both have a list of pros and cons for any given broadcast application, and with the newly announced BP40 Large Diaphragm Dynamic Broadcast Microphone, it appears Audio-Technica is looking to combine the best of both worlds into a dynamic package. The mic sports a large (for a dynamic mic) 37.5mm diaphragm that provides some condenser-like articulation without betraying the low-end oomph of a dynamic. If you do need to tame that low end because of a rumbling room or extra-boomy voice, the mic does have a selectable high-pass filter. Also featured in the video is a look at the new AT2020USBi, a refresh to their popular USB mic that sees no changes to the capsule or sound capture quality, but an increase of its maximum sampling rate to 24-bit/96 kHz and the inclusion of both USB and Lightning connectors for hooking directly up to your iOS devices. Please check back for pricing and availability.

While we generally recommend getting closer to the subject and using a dual-system solution to avoid recording the camera's noisy preamps, in many one-shooter, run-and-gun situations, that's not always possible. This video is designed to give you an idea of what some of these microphones sound like in such situations. We begin by listening to the poor audio recorded from the built-in mic on a DSLR, followed by examples of how six camera-mountable microphones sound, individually. The featured microphones include: Polsen SCL-1075, RØDE VideoMic Go, sE Electronics ProMic Laser, Sennheiser MKE 400, Shure VP83, and the Senal SCS-98.

In the following video, Rob Rives from B&H discusses a wish list of five budget-friendly turntables for the 2014 holiday season. He explores all-around performers like the Audio Technica AT-LP60USB, stylish models like the Ion Audio Max LP, portable offerings such as the Vestax Handy Trax USB Turntable, direct-drive models for DJing like the Audio-Technica AT-LP120 USB, and models that can be upgraded over time for hi-fi audio like the Denon DP-300F. The video also showcases the vibration dampening benefits of belt-driven designs, options for digital archiving over USB using the turntables’ included digital-to-analog converters, and ways of making a turntable sound even better by upgrading the cartridge and stylus.
