So it looks like my local Guitar Center has both the Behringer mic/amp and the Galaxy 140 SPL. Price for either is pretty close... What do you think would be the better choice?
If I recall correctly ...you need a mixer for the Behringer

That's correct. The mixer/preamp is about $60.00 and the mic is around $50.00. So combined, about the same price as the Galaxy 140

Re: Alternative mic to RS SPL?

How much of a difference would it make to have the ECM8000 professionally calibrated vs. using the listed correction file? Has anyone used the correction file for a while, then decided to have theirs pro calibrated and re-did it to find a significant improvement?

Along those same lines, how close are all of our uncalibrated microphones likely to be that the correction file is going to bring them all closer to where they should be? Isn't it more likely that they've drifted in different directions from unit to unit?

Re: Alternative mic to RS SPL?

We created the ECM cal file from a professionally calibrated meter and once completed we tested several ECM mics against it and they were very consistent between units. Certainly within reason for home theater use.
