The demographic of the average vinyl buyer is very clear. It’s a middle-aged man, possibly bearded (OK, definitely bearded); kids have probably left home, no longer on speaking terms with wife, spare bedroom has become a shrine to his teenage love: the Floyd (their album The Endless River was the best-selling vinyl LP in 2014).

Advanced Audio DM20
The DM20 is a super cardioid dynamic microphone, based on the original RE20. The DM20 produces a vocal presence peak which can enhance the voice. It also has an internal windscreen and does not require a shock mount. It features two bass roll off switches and a high frequency filter.
