Editor's Notes

February 18, 2021:

Depending on what you're aiming for, there are a few different directions you can go with a quality streaming bundle. The Marantz Professional Turret is a complete kit that makes installation and configuration a breeze, thanks in part to its streamlined onboard controls. The Stream Team Abel Gaming is another relatively complete option, although its recording quality isn't quite on the same level as the Marantz.

Most other kits won't come with a webcam, but there are plenty of great webcams on the market. The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Studio is a relatively well-known option that's ideal for singer/songwriters and podcasters because of its premium microphone. The Uhuru UM-925 won't win any awards for sound quality, but at its price point, complete with a desk arm, cables, and pop filter, it's a great value.

The Zoom H4n Pro bundle is an interesting choice, because while it's not ideal for some live streaming applications, its a highly respected field recorder that's great for journalists and live music fans.

February 22, 2019:

The range of quality in this category is a nice analog to the range you'll find in streams uploaded by users on YouTube and elsewhere, which is to say that there are some great ones, and, to put it kindly, some not-so-great ones. Tried and true companies like Blue and Rode have some of the best bundles going, simply because they have the best low-cost microphones to offer. Consumers with much more ambitious production goals could make good use of the SlingStudio package, even if it is prohibitively expensive compared to some other options.

Special Honors

Blue Microphones If you want to maintain complete control over each of your setup's components, consider a microphone from Blue, as they offer a wide selection of models, with both USB and XLR connectors, that are suitable for podcasts, gaming, and even recording multi-track audio. They also offer a line of full-featured software to help you completely tailor your equipment's performance to your needs.
