Antlion Audio ModMic USB Review (Page 1 of 4)

I have not been as active on APH Networks in the last few months due to how busy I have been. I finished my summer job and then moved to Ontario, Canada to start my graduate studies. It has been a bit of an adjustment, but It has been lots of fun. I have never been in Ontario before, so all of it has been a completely new experience. Toronto is the big city of Canada and about a sixth of Canada’s population lives in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Unfortunately, I was not able to bring my big desktop PC with me, so I have mostly switched over to gaming on the Nintendo Switch, which is a wildly different experience.
