Just plug the USB microphone into the laptop. You should need the microphone, a USB cable, your laptop and a downloaded copy of REW. :confused"
If you needed anything else, it would be an independent sound meter to calibrate REW and to set the measuring volume of the subwoofer using the sub's gain knob and the AVR provided pink noise.
That's it. Microphone stand and additional cabling aside, unless a ground loop problem, that's it.
Our measuring kit comprises of:
A microphone stand.
A phantom power supply as we're not able to use a USB microphone.
A ground loop isolator.
RCA connectors to connect the isolator to the AVR.
A place to store it all when not in use.
A downloaded copy of REW.
And a boatload of time to measure the room and play with the subwoofer/AVR settings so as do one's best to improve the measuring graph.
