i’ve got some $$ to burn for home office equipment. I’ve already got a standing desk (with a mat), a comfortable chair, dual monitors. debating getting a dedicated mic, but wanted to see if there are any other “must-have” items that folks here might recommend…

A solid speakermic (a la the Hangouts Meet speakermic) is one of the best things you could go with. Could do the microphone separately of course but I very much love having a hardware mute button and nice red/green lights to know when I’m muted or not.

LED light for your face (Lume Cube or Aputure Mini).

I bought the Hue Lightstrip for my setup recently and love it. It adds a nice, alluring glow to my desk which also kind of brightens up my face on camera.
