Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I only included the sensitivity data in the one file "zero band response zero degrees" as thats the file I was using for room measurement using REW and I am pointing the mic directly at the speakers...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I inserted the "Sens factor line" on the top line of the cal file exactly like Minidsp shows it. I then compared spl with my spl meter and both measurements were within 1 db.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I just got my UMIK-1 from CSL and it also does not include the sensitivity data. What I did was go the Minidsp site and pulled up the cal file for my SN. Then cut and paste the sensitivity data to...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Agreed. I will be EQing and will order the Umik from CSL. Its got to be accurate or EQing is a waste of time.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I also hope they can recreate the original file measurement. I suspect we will hear some feedback by mid next week although their website is saying Monday. Fingers crossed.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I guess that explains why we have not seen a response.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Yes I looked at some of the other serial # files from the new batch and they do look bad. Not sure what to say about it. I was notified today that my Umic-1 is sitting in customs so I expect...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Your right. When I compare the 2 calibration files (yours vs prior) there are big differences. Your file starts at 20hz vs 5 hz for files below 7000188. I also saw your post on the Minidsp forum. ...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I am following your question closely as I have not yet received my Umik-1 and expect it has similar calibration issues.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

My laptop has HDMI out so I can use HDMI to connect my laptop to my Onkyo preamp. I chose HDMI since I read there are problems with USB over longer distances unless you use a repeater. Of course I...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Yeah read that as well. With a calibrated mic I should be able to trust the measurement results and spend my time finding the best dual sub locations and optimal speaker positioning. Once completed...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Yeah I read that as well. The spl meter in REW uses sensitivity data from the provided calibration file so based on what I read you don't need any additional spl meter.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Patzig did you happen to also try the same configuration with a 3.0 USB setup? Just curious to see if the results are similar as my laptop has both 2.0 and 3.0 usb's.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

If the HDMI cable length was an issue I was considering an alternative connection ie rca cable from headphone jack on laptop to 5508. If 25 ft HDMI works well for you then no issue thats what I will...
