Auto-calibration Wireless?

Hello All,

I am sure this question has had to be asked at least once on this site but I cant seem to find it. I have a receiver that is hidden in a closet that is too far to reach the microphone cord and all wires are run through the wall so access is hard if not impossible. any suggestions? I may be able to do a long extension cable but it would probably have to be 100 feet which i would assume would introduce too much loss. What do people usually do in this situation?


Thanks in advance!

Kevin

If I was in this situation I would use an extension line for the mic. Yes there would be minor loss but using a wireless mic would inject even a worse set of variables (delay, interference in signal, signal loss etc.)

Its like way too far... Wired to my downstairs closet so i would have to go across the entire house, then down the stairs then back through the house into the closet. I would say that may even be 200 feet or more i really would have to measure.


I assume there is no option to do wireless?

The only “loss,” if any, would be signal level. That could easily be compensated for by increasing the volume. As long as the receiver runs the calibration process, then it’s happy with what it’s getting from the mic.

Absolutely not. That would get you noise, delay, and aberrations in frequency response, the median and latter of which would definitely mess up the results.

But it would be interesting to see the results of using a wireless mic. Distance (delay) might be astronomic! Probably out of the range of the AVR to compute.

Thank you everyone!

I think i may just bring the receiver up there for a moment and wire it all up then bring it back... im not sure I can get a long enough cord for it.
