Again, I suggest you just get the USB mic. Don't worry about external sound card, it only complicates your entire system.

Ok. I am convinced. I am going to buy a USB system, insulate the environment (that includes thermal paste reapplication!) and put some soft blankets in the rear and front of my workstation.

But goddamit...! There is not even a single Blue vendor in my city. I can't believe it... Could you suggest any Shure substitutes for Yeti?

That means I will have to pay twice as much in shipping costs for it to fly over the Atlantic Ocean. ::) They can bite their @#&...

Besides, I was hoping to get a unit in my own region, so I can just return it to the shop within a matter of hours, not weeks...

Oh... I probably got redirected to American vendors...

Interestingly enough, Blue's products are completely inaccessible in my "native" Allegro. WTAF??? None are present.

EDIT: Or it might be my fossilized traditionalism of rejecting things like Facebook, Allegro or Snapchat. I finally found some of these suckers. ::)
