Stereo microphones, USB Microphones, Preamplifiers, Digital Recorders, Cables and more at Rock Bottom Prices from The Sound Professionals - Great deals on Microphone, Preamplifier, Digital Recorder, Cable and more!

This guy has a blog where he posts binaural recording's he's made in various locations and you really get the "I'm there" feeling with them, incredible.
