Try clearing your browser cache and reloading the page. I know it's working because this is the only place I've linked the page and I have a bunch of orders already (but only a few have left your HTS username, don't forget to leave it for your discount).

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I've spent a little time getting around to this and was looking at the UMM-6.... but the UMIK looks like the go. Order placed & thank you for providing the additional calibration mate. Very much appreciated & can't wait to get system sorted again (moved from carpeted apartment to wooden floor house.... lol).

Best Output Option

I just purchased a UMIC-1 microphone from the CSL link. I am looking for the most accurate way to measure response, do I need hdmi output or would analog rca out or spdif output from my soundcard work just as well?

I have a delta audiophile 24/96 soundcard with dual rca analog output and input jacks. It also can output coax spdif.

Since, I have read that there is no way to calibrate soundcards when using usb mics I was leaning towrads purchasing a hdmi video card. So should I juist purchase a hdmi video card and use hdmi out or is it just as good to use the spdif or rca analog coax output on the audiophile?


Also, The microphone cable will be connected with a 32ft active usb extension cable from the pc.

My System
Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Got mine today from CSL! Did a couple measurements. The sensitivity thing is throwing me off a little. Factory cal file says -8.4 dB. CSL cal file does not include. Input signal is well below the output signal when setting levels. SPL cal was done with a RS meter and afterwards says max SPL is 105 dB. Mic is supposed to be good to 130 dB so I'm thinking I need to add the factory sensitivity to the cal file?

Did you receive an email for shipping and how many days did it take from the time you ordered? I just ask because it was said that supply was limited and wondering if I will get mine any time soon.

Also, how about some screen shots of the calibration files to compare against.

I understand that for now the Sensitivity data will not accompany the CSL cal. file due to issues with potential conflicts of other accoustic analysis software and some other details. So, SPL should just be calibrated as you did with your RS meter against REW's SPL software meter
