Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I've been using the supplied 1.5m cable + a 3m USB extension cable (total = 4.5m) without issue. I have compared measurements with and without the extra 3m extension cable and there was no...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Wow, 8 seated locations, that is going to be tough :) I found the "average measurements" function to be quite useful in REW. What I did was measure at my 2 main seating locations, then average...
