Availability of Cross Spectrum Calibrated MiniDSP UMIK-1 microphone?

I tried to order a Calibrated MiniDSP UMIK-1 microphone from Cross Spectrum today. At the bottom of the page it says they usually ship in 5 days, but when I try to complete the order it tells me they are out of stock.

Does anyone know if there is a way to get on a waiting list? Is there somewhere else to order the mic with the calibration file?

Thanks,
Nick

The UMIK-1 comes calibrated from miniDSP and can be ordered here:

http://www.minidsp.com/products/acou...urement/umik-1

A calibration file specific to your mic's serial number will be sent after the purchase.

My understanding is that the calibration file provided by the factory is not as good as the file provided by Cross Spectrum.

Rated to 20Hz only. Most of us require frequency that's lower than that.

The calibration file I have from CS is almost totally different than the one from the factory...

Any chance you could post a comparison? Might be helpful to those trying to decide from which vendor to purchase the UMIK.

I'm not questioning whether or not they are different, just looking for a visual comparison to aid others in their research. The graphs you posted are on two different scales. Not quite a fair comparison if you ask me.

As an FYI, Cross Spectrum is now taking orders again if anyone is looking for a mic.

The two charts are almost identical...if only you used the same scale and looked at 20hz to 20khz! Please stop being silly!
