I don't think we can get you any faster results that emailing them directly.

You might contact PayPal, as it seems that is where the problem exist.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I just ordered the mic.

I am hoping my daughters Lenovo Ideapad P580 will be sufficient enough to work with this unit or if I will need an external soundcard.

I have an Marantz AV7005 and using the AS-EQ1 in the mix. Will I have any issues using this with this combination?

Sorry, very new to the REW world. I love what XT32 has done with my HT setup and looking to tweak more with this unit.

Does this save the updates on your AVR? How does it know what curve or tweaks you have done?

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I just placed my order as well.

Welcome to the HTS cdnbum88.

This is not meant to replace the mic you use for Audyssey, it is only used to measure the response of your system but it will not save anything to your AVR.

What it will be useful for is to measure your system before applying any Audyssey processing so you can make some possible changes in there placement to improve response naturally. It will also give you a better idea of how your response actually is since the graphs that the AS-EQ1 put out are exaggerated to look really smooth.

Can't wait to get mine and see how low can I go!

After I typed it and thought for a minute I realized how stupid my question was So this will let me see where my potential 'issues' are and then try to move the speakers to try and adjust to improve the SQ. I don't have lots of options with wife approved locations but can adjust a little. I wish I had more options for acoustic materials as I know they would improve my room, but without WA options I think XT32 has done a great job with my HT system.

Hoping this will show me some of the short falls and go from there. I hope I can just use the HDMI from laptop and this mic and be good to go

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

It wasn't a stupid question, your system is more complicated than most with 2 mics you need to use to calibrate so it would be easy to confuse. Members are less likely to jump on people around here at the HTS so never be worried to ask a question.

Let us know how you like the Umik-1 and I will make sure and do the same.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Lots of interesting information. I'm not looking for a new mic currently, but it's REALLY hard to beat the convenience of a USB mic.

Looks like the FR graphs are pretty good. The price seems pretty decent too!
