Open the files in textedit and copy the first line of the miniDSP file to the top of the Cross Spectrum file.

I forgot to add this after I received my UMIK from CSL but better late than never. Here are the two cal files overlaid. The dark line is CSL (0 degree narrow band) and the light one is Mini DSP.

Hello, the photo link seems to be broken. Is it possible to upload the photo to the forum rather than host on another site? The offsite photo hosting always seems to break eventually

EDIT: I kept looking, and see there are some images still working here: http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...tml#post603340

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Sorry if this is a dumb or previously answered question, however what is the advantage of the UMIK-1 vs the Genelec 8200A mic I have been using? Will the 8200A work with, and perform correctly with, the asio4all software? I am very interested in running independent sweeps of each of the 7.1 channels in my system.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

If you can use the mic with REW's Java drivers it should also work with ASIO4All.

Cool Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Hi John & all,

Great thread! I'm certain a lot of time and effort has gone into the matching of Room EQ Wizard and the MiniDSP UMIK-1 Mic. Thanks for that.

I'm thinking of trying Room EQ Wizard on my systems, and if I get proficient with it, maybe those of my family & friends. So my focus will probably be in those areas here at HTS. Being married, I don't have lots of extra cash outside of the family budget to spend on expensive equipment, but I'd like to try to get the most out of what I have. I'm ready to order a MiniDSP UMIK-1 Mic as it fits my budget and what I've read suggests it will do the job although not down to the nether regions the most expensive Subs can achieve. (Mine tap out at about 25 Hz so I think I'm safe.) So I guess my first question is, is the UMIK-1 Mic still the right choice at this spec & price point to use with the latest REW software?

Thanks for the assist.

Regards,

Jim

Yes, the UMIK-1 is still a great choice.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

John & All,

The Canadian Distributor (Solen Online) has both the MiniDSP UMIK-1 & Dayton UMM-6 at ($114 & $104 respectively plus shipping & taxes.) I've seen posts on other sites where they think the Dayton is the way to go and others where the UMIK-1 is the choice.

If you had to choose, and the only thing you plan to use it for is Room EQ Wizard on a Windows platform, which way would you go?

Thanks for the assist.

Regards,

Jim
