Designed to deliver professional-quality sound in an easy-to-use package, the NT-USB Mini is ideal for gamers, podcasters, musicians, streamers, business professionals and multimedia content creators.

It comes with a detachable magnetic desk stand, integrated 360-degree swing mount, class-compliant USB output and studio-grade headphone amplifier.

No drivers or software are needed, and no external power required to operate; just plug in and hit record. It works seamlessly with any recording software or streaming app, while studio-quality 24-bit, 48KHz A/D conversion ensures extremely low distortion and very high dynamic range for high-quality audio recording. At just 89 mm wide and 141 mm tall, the NT-USB Mini is very compact, taking up minimal desktop real estate. The NT-USB Mini is available now with a RRP of USD$99. Click here for more information.
