Another day, another group order. As always, HTS members get an additional $5 off, leave your username in the comment field (on the PayPal order page) and I'll refund the $5.

Mics will not ship until the last week of January. PE is low on inventory (they have 2 in stock as of 4:30 Eastern time on Sat Jan 2) and isn't expecting to be restocked until the week of Jan 22. That said, during the Black Friday sale, PE gave a mid-Jan date for restocking and they shipped mics out in mid-December so that Jan 22 date may be conservative.

Important Update:

When I contacted Parts-Express about the EMM-6 group order earlier this month, the told me that were out of stock, but would have them back in stock by this week (which jibes with the info on the EMM-6 product page).

I just called them to place the group order, and the sales associate mentioned that the Jan 22 date was just an "estimate" and that it could actually be up to *2 to 3 weeks* before they are restocked.

Given this information, I wanted to contact you all before going through with the order.

Right now I can think of 3 options:

  1. Proceed with the EMM-6 group-buy and hope that PE is just being conservative with the schedule (which they've done in the past, but I have no guarantee that will hold right now).
  2. Move the EMM-6 group-buy to an ECM8000 group-by (same price) - mics would ship in two weeks, but that is more of a definitive schedule than what PE is giving me.
  3. Cancel everything and refund everyone's money.
I've got orders for 30 mics so I have some leeway if some people want to drop out and others want to continue with the group buy.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks, and I apologize for the trouble.

Herb

FYI, Parts-Express is holding Yet Another EMM-6 sale, which means I'm holding Yet Another EMM-6 sale.

Prices start at $70 for the Basic model (although to be honest, Dayton's curves have gotten better, so if you don't need cal data below 20Hz, above 20 kHz or the off-axis info, you're probably just as well ordering the mic straight from PE and saving the $30).

PE's sale is going until June 30, so as long as they're selling at that price, I'll be selling them at value-added price. I plan on buying them in chunks though, so orders may take about a week or so to ship.

Was wondering, what are the options for sending in a mic for calibration? I already own the Dayton EMM6, but don't feel its cal is accurate. Thanks!

I do offer mic calibration services for mics you may already own. The pricing starts at $55 for a "basic" (on-axis frequency response only) cal, and $75 gets you everything (freq resp, noise floor, sensitivity, polar, two off-axis measurements) and all pricing includes shipping.

If you would like to proceed, PM me and I can send you the shipping details.
