If you're looking for something to plug straight into your computer to record podcast or vocals I wouldn't recommend this. As the title states this is a studio mic it'll need 48v as someone already stated.

By the time you've bought the interface and cables to hook upto your computer you'll be at around 70-100. Get on Amazon as search for computer microphone. The blue ones are pretty decent quality.

If you do get a condenser microphone I'd recommend a pop shield too. Condensers are sensitive to the force created from the air coming out of your mouth, causing the recording to pop/clip, hence pop shield. Also don't drop it or swing it around your head, you'll want an sm58 if you're doing that.
Does nobody Google for themselves anymore? Educate yourself, people! You will learn far more practical knowledge than a small spoon feeding here.
XLR is the basic cable of all stage microphones. There are adapters to 1/4 inputs and even usb inputs. But honestly, a good adapter is going to be the same price as this microphone.

Pretty new to recording, is this primarily a vocal/acoustic mic or can it be used to mic an amp directly?

How/ what do you connect this to an amplifier/receiver? Specs say XLR - not familiar with that.

You can get an XLR cable with a standard amplifier input on the other end of the cable. A basic one from Guitar Center might be like $15-20.

I would not recommend this for anything with that high of decibel output.

The entire cable is an XLR setup on both ends. One male and one female.

I'm not sure why you would use a mic like this with an amplifier/receiver directly. You need to go from mic to a line level too, not just the adapter connections.

You would likely want some sort of mixer or a karaoke unit in front of it to use it like that. At the very least, a DJ mixer would work.

Check out the side of this Tascam recording device. You'd plug the other end into this connection.

Usually through a mixer or with an audio interface.

I'm in agreement with you. I was just answering their question with a solution. This seems more like a basic podcast mic or you're recording some acoustic guitar in your bedroom kinda thing.

My wife wants a microphone to sing combined with background music from her iPhone. I thought an USB microphone to her laptop would work but they didn't work together. Then I got a mini amp that has RCA inputs and a BT connection to her phone.

So I need to get a microphone that can be plugged into the mini amp thru RCA or AUX mini- audio. This won't work I presume
