MXL 990 Mic pitting the Blue Icicle Vs Focusrite Scarlett 2i2

Do you need a high end DAC interface for your Large Diaphragm Condensor Microphones or can you get away with a less expensive one? Watch this video and you may find your answer. I put the inexpensive Blue Icicle interface against the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, the Scarlett is three times the price of the Icicile but does it preform three times better? Have a listen for yourself and make your own decision. Best to listen via headphones to avoid missing any subtle differences.I use the MXL 990 mic on both interfaces. I used Poser to create this lip synched talking head but seem to have buggered it up somewhere along the way alas.I used the Wingard Popgard Pop filter on the MXL 990 to try to avoid any plosives.
