Plugs in directly to speakers, that is the only plus to owning this Mic.
The fact of the matter is at the end of the day you need to have both a wired and wireless Microphone in your setup because Wireless is unreliable. It cuts in and out, even though it is well within range. However, there was a time when my Audio Interface crapped out mid-performance and being able to have a Microphone lined directly into the Speakers allowed me to announce to my Guests that I was having Technical Difficulties. Saved the day really! For that I give it 3 stars. Other than this though, it cuts in and out, crackles, pops, not very great volume control. You cannot route it through a mixer unless you own one that supports USB, then you wouldn't be plugging it directly into the Speakers and maybe you'd get a better experience, not sure. shrugs
