For that task I'm using an Ersa Multitip C25 at home. I only replaced

If I have to solder a cable to pot case etc. I've got a second Ersa with
30 W.
To unsolder I'm using desoldering wick.

IOW, don't pay $130 to $250, but $13 to $25 instead. The best soldering
irons I know are from Ersa, but Ersa soldering iron stations are crap.
The best conventional soldering and desoldering iron stations I know are
from Weller, but even a Monacor Weller-fake is much better than an Ersa.
However a soldering station for amateurs is overkill. The best way to
solder is hot air soldering, I never used it, even not when working
professional. If you have to solder a lot beiing an professional, I
agree with a conventional soldering station for perhaps $130 to $250 or
what ever something like a Weller should cost.

IMO amateurs don't need to solder, but it can't harm to learn it and do
it yourself.

Regarding to the microphony I also disagree with Gene, I recommend to
ask an experienced amateur or professional close to you, to take a look
at the room and then to recommend an elCheapo solution.

If what you are doing should be professional, then you should pay an
professional engineer to do the job.

2 Cents,
