The Antec P180 Case is not the newest case from Antec, but it's still a fantastic product.

Video Review #1004: Infrasonic Amon USB 2.0 Audio Interface

If you ever tried to use a professional microphone on a computer you know how frustrating it is. That's because most regular sound cards are not equipped for most professional mics. Why it doesn't work that well has to do with impedance matching. Pro mics don't mix well with a computer's 3.5mm audio mic jack. Usually the audio is so low they are useless unless you hold them right up to your mouth and scream. Even then clipping is a major issue. You need a preamp to make it work properly or a product like the Infrasonic Amon USB 2.0 Audio Interface. Watch the video to find out more...
