What type of preamp should I be looking for for RE20 when doing VO for radio. I am looking for something that is going to get me the best out of the mic for a relatively decent type of price.

I mean I am not looking to go super elaborate here, just something to bring the best out of the mic.

Any suggestions would be great, thank you.

There are just to many that fit that criteria to mention. I have never had a problem using the RE-20 with any high end professional external outboard mic preamp. When I do VO sessions, I usually start with my Focusrite Red-7, which happens to be a long time industry standard for VO work, and I rarely need to try anything else.

Focusrite Red-7

Wow that Focusrite Red-7 is a sweet looking rig, At least to a low end new-be like me.
Now I have to ask one of those questions;
How many I/O does it have, I mean does a single mic
plug direct to the red 7 and then out to the board.
I only have a small home studio and am just trying to learn
for the future. I have a whole two Phantom power supplies, LOL
and is it the same as a mic pre amp.
Now I'm dumb.
