    My original plan was to not spend over £100 in total. That was achievable when I thought I needed only a preamp. But if I don't, I'd like something that's good, but it's top of the line.

    Can you recommend me an 'interface' that won't destroy my wallet? Thanks.

    I've had one of these for years now, handling vocal mic's, and doing DI for bass, guitars, and digital drums.

    Forget the pre-amp. If you don't know how to connect it, you don't need it.

    I'm also curious... why a condenser mic? What are you micing (vox/instrument).

    If you're looking to get a decent mic for voiceover work, forget the spendy pre-amps and all that, and even what i linked earlier, and just get this:

    I've been using that thing for podcasts, as well as voicework I've done here and there. It's more than capable of getting you started.

    This is what you want. It acts as an XLR to USB bridge with gain control.

    I think I'm just going to go with a USB mic. I'm not confident with all this preamp stuff, and it's my first proper mic anyway, one that isn't terrible and attached to a headset. I should probably keep things simple for my first mic. Samson C1U, probably.

    Actually, isn't this exactly what I need? It has a USB slot at the back.

    Since you were already set on a microphone I suggested an inexpensive device to simply connect it via USB to your computer. You do not need a preamp at all if you have free software such as Audacity for EQ and simple effects.
