Define "accuracy". Even with an elevated noise floor these mics are quite accurate for measuring frequency response. It is only an issue when doing other kinds of measurements like THD.Well I read about issues with the accuracy of the mics. It used to be a problem apparently. So you're saying that's not an issue anymore.
It's linked from the "Pricing" tab. The link goes to:There is no mention of shipping prices on your site, at least that I could see. All I get is a $95 including shipping with the UMIK-1, but I assume that isn't to South Africa.
Although it still says they have a limited number of UMIK-1's in stock, it's not going through the payment step as "your item(s) sold out".Their website has been updated to say they have limited quantities in stock, and they will ship in the next five days. I was able to get the order to go through tonight. I can't wait to start using it.
It's an artifact from the smoothing process I use to remove room effects. It creates an error somewhere on the order of +/1 0.5 dB. I may have been a little too aggressive in the case of your mic. What is the serial number of that mic?So my question is: are these sharp edges in the frequency response real or simply errors from the microphone measurements? And if they're real, what is the physical/electrical explanation for their presence?
This would be my preference as well. Some may be willing to pay an additional 5-10% for the more reliable shipping times, but others will be willing to wait the extra few days for delivery. If you were to offer FedEx or UPS, I'd bet that a lot of those customers would even opt for next day delivery.Without having been subject to the vagaries of USPS, I wonder if it's worth offering both options e.g. UPS and USPS, and the buyer can make the choice.
