Thinking to go with the Focusrite Scarlet Solo (with phantom power) for the AT2020 mic, and then use a Shiit Magni headphone amp to drive the 990 Pro's to their fullest (if after testing the Solo we decide the built in amp is not good enough). Both can be had from the manufactures websites refurb/B-stock to save a few $'s. Again, I know this is not strictly music audio, but for my 11 year old son, it's just as important for his gaming. I appreciate this community greatly. Have a peaceful w/end all.
