Just a bit of warning, my several month old UMIK-1 (from the new batch, I had to wait a few weeks while they sorted things out) died unexpectedly after it's second use.
To be fair this is something that can happen with any of the mics in this class (ECM8000, EMM-6, UMIK-1, UMM-6, RTA-M, etc). It's the price we pay for living in the low end.

On the other end, a $200 Class 1 pre-amp died on me after a couple of months, so I guess it's a price we pay on the high-end as well

The worse part is after attempts to contact them via their website, I've yet to get a response.
Email them.

+1 I found them to very responsive via email. They handled the return and refund of my UMIK -1 in a very businesslike manner.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

They've responded, and are sending a replacement. I got a little nervous, since I first emailed 4 days ago with no response, but once they did, I'm pleased with the support.

I find support for products over there either really good or really bad. I have a few products that failed where the manufacturer won't respond (like Lian-Li), or I get "email box full" message. I'm glad Mini-DSP isn't one of them!

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I clicked on the sponsor link for minidsp and landed on a URL not found page. Anybody know what's up?

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I am having the same problem (can't access the minidsp website), so it isn't just you. It worked for me as recently as 2 days ago, but is not working now. I have tried two different browsers via different ISPs.

I hope it is just a transient problem.

Very odd, I was on there a few hours ago. Likely just temporary.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Can someone elaborate on the differences between the UMIK-1 offered by miniDSP and the one offered by Cross Spectrum?
