"Is this mic worth $209?" To whom? Brand new in the UK about £150 ($300)

"Also, what is phantom power?" a neat way of supplying the power using the mic. cable rather than a separate wire.

Just to expand on Doug's comment a little further. Phantom requires a mixer or pre-amp to provide (and I think it ahs to be over XLR as well). If you are planning on connecting the mic straight into a soundcard you'd better check if it has phantom power first.

And I got mine for $100 on eBay. Definitely worth $100. :)

Phantom power basics sort of explained.

As Docformat said - "Phantom requires a mixer or pre-amp" - which, if you need to ask, is about true - typically a small Behringer or similar has a small switch on the back marked "Phantom Power" - you set this to "ON" if you need it.
The expert puts sticky tape over the switch so that nobody messes with it.
