Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

This was done with a first batch UMIK, serial number 024. The green line is with the original cal file ending at 4.6hz and the yellow or gold line is with the newer cal file which ends at 20.3 I...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I've only tested one of the two I have so far, although it appears both are from batch one. From what I'm looking at there is only a slight difference in the lower octaves. The old cal file seems...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

At what number does batch 2 start? I have one that is definitely batch 1, but I'm not sure if my other one is batch 2.

Today I did a little experiment with my batch 1 mic and compared the...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

To take a quasi anechoic measurement you get a mic stand or something of that nature and aim it at the tweeter of the speaker you are measuring. Usually about 1M from the speaker, but it should...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I can believe they may have fixed something to do with the sensitivity since that seems to be off with the first batch of cal files, but the correction down below 20 seems decent. I compared both...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I have two mics from the first batch and the cal files rocked. I have measurements of a pair of my towers taken quasi-anchoic by the designer and I compared the quasi measurements I took with the...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I posted over at AVS, but I'll say it here as well. If you ordered one of the original mics and still have your cal file, for the love of whatever don't lose it. I just clicked on the link in one...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

That's weird. I ordered the UMIK awhile ago, got the replacement a couple weeks ago, and I think it's been a couple weeks since I received my 2X4 and I haven't gotten any import fees or charges. I...

If you look at the miniDSP forum you'll see that they are holiday from Monday to Wednesday and you should expect responses to e-mails and inquiries starting Thursday.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

The concerns weren't over a lack of response over the course of a couple hours, or even 24 hours. It wasn't even necessarily over response times per se. It was a lack of decisiveness when I...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

It's not the cracked box that would give me cause to send it back, it's the lack of protocols and the accompanying somewhat vague answers. I don't see the Dayton as an inferior mic, at least right...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Just as an update, I'm still trying to work with miniDSP on my broken box. They take between 2-3 days to respond to e-mails, although I'm on day 2 since I last e-mailed them and don't have much hope...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

You don't use the laptop or computer soundcard for input at all, it is all handled by the UMIK. For output you still use whatever soundcard you have.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Actually it's the UMIK that has that advantage over the Dayton. It basically means that it has a built in "sound card" which encodes the audio file at 24 bits and either 44.1 or 48kHz

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

As a quick update, I contacted miniDSP about getting a new box and they told me it would be easier to just send me a new mic, but that I'd have to return the one I have. I asked them a question...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

A few db, a few Hz, nothing too significant. I know I read somewhere the UMIK-1 has more information in the cal file, but don't quote me on that.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I wouldn't expect any difference, but try both and see if there are any meaningful differences.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

No problem, enjoy the mic. If you have any problems just contact miniDSP. I had an issue and they are working with me to get it all sorted out.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

The headphone out should be fine. I've never heard of a headphone out being optimized for anything. The only thing that will influence the headphone out is the quality of the sound card.
