Hi everyone,

I too am a new owner of a DVX and am looking to get the proper advice in order to purchase the right accessories. I tried my best to do my homework before making this post but I was unsuccessful finding information. I don't have a big budget either but I'd like to get a good mic without spending a lot (just like everyone else :-)). With that said has anyone heard any inforamtion on this mic known as the SGM1 made by Professional Sound Corporation? There's a cool kit being sold with this mic on B&H for $299 but I think it's relatively new. I was hoping maybe one of you sound guys are familiar with the brand.


Here's a couple of links:

Then I'm wondering if I'm already spending that much if I should just go with either the Audio Technica AT897 or screw it all together and get a Schriber Acoustic SA-568 from EVS for $120. I'm no audio guy and if I ever make a big production will be sure to hire a professional, I just need a mic to record aight sound. Sorry for being longwinded but any input would greatly be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Larry,

I don't know anything about the SGM1, but they are about to get some confusion calling their mic a name so close to the established Azden SGM1X :laugh:

I can tell you that you would be better off buying the AT897 rather than the SA568, though. AT897 is much cleaner. :thumbsup:
