Final Word

What this comes down to is price. The NTK requires a good preamp and interface to truly shine. Basically if you went with the NTK, your signal chain would look like:

Laptop/PC > Interface > Preamp > Mic.

More on this in my:

RODE NTK TUBE CONDENSER MICROPHONE REVIEW!!

If you went the C214 route, you wouldn’t necessarily need a preamp, so your chain would be:

Laptop/PC > Audio Interface > Mic. I do however go over some good preamp options in my C214 review.

My recommendation? I would go with the C214. It has been praised so mightily and works well for just about anything. It is a tough choice, but price steers me towards the C214.
