I am using a Golden PR40 and Shure X2U directly connect to PC. Mixer is too complicated for me.

You sound good

Thanks for the comment! Heil PR40 is a great mic! I don’t see too many people sporting the Gold version like you have! Nice! I also really like the fact that you are using a XLR to USB converter. In my opinion, the XLR connection always provides the best sound because it’s grounded. By using the Shure x2u connection, you get the best of both worlds!

I have a Zoom h4n. I don’t know anything about the Heil PR40. How would I connect the two for the best audio quality? Thanks.
