Rookie here...

I need an external USB mic preamp with phantom power. I already have a ECM8000 calibrated I purchased in this forum. I will use the external USB device on a Netbook running Win XP.

These 2 models are the ones that pop up in my searches and can be purchased at similar prices.

Do you recommend one over the other? This is strictly for REW use.

Often interface compatibility is tied to the OS. Personally I’m using the US122 with XP and it works fine. I did have to push the input level higher than usual in order to get a calibration file, but honestly, response is so flat you don’t even need a calibration file. It’s down maybe 1/4 dB at 20 Hz, if that!

Regards,
Wayne
