@gohan6425 You could probably send an email to Funimation or TeamFourStar and ask them what it is they use. I'm willing to bet that at least TFS uses consumer grade ones. Though while it may be harder, you could probably find some twitch streamers and ask them what they use, or some prominent Youtubers.
@SpacemanHardy Hmmm Yeti seen to be more money so I take it that better one to get?
Personally I'd say that if you're looking to do this recreationally its not a bad idea to at least be wallet conscious. A lot of older shows or even youtube videos have terrible sound, so you'd already have something better.
Think of it this way, in an analogy.
We live a standard of living that is better than rulers even 100 years ago. ESPECIALLY in technology. Though we could honestly bring it closer to 50 years if Moore's Law is anything to go by.
@darthrutsula40 I not sure Funimation will replay to a question like that. But I sure whatever that used is a lot more money then any of thing I looking at.
Maybe, maybe not. Keep in mind that if its expensive for you, it'll also be expensive for them.
But why wouldn't they share what they use?
