Could use a little help fellas. I know I talked to a few of you at the gtg about this stuff but still confused. Basically need opinions of omnimic vs Umik and REW.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hands down the OM is the easiest to get up and running and for quick little measurement sessions smile.gif The more in-depth you get into measuring, the more important spending some time with REW and another USB mic will be. I have the umm-6 and the OM v1 (recalibrated) If you want to try one out before you buy, let me know and I can send one to you for a little while smile.gif

Truth is, the computer (laptop or HTPC or whatever you use) is usually the most finicky when it comes to REW. Once you know how to situate the soundcard parameters and such, it is breeze, but my old laptop just never made it easy for me. I still never got the HDMI method to work, but a standard 3.5mm out to RCA in on the front of the receiver still works just fine. make sure your sampling rates are the same and have some fun!!

Now see why I like OM better? plug in the mic, pop the cd in your BD player, and start measuring...Haha
