GIVEAWAY! Win a miniDSP UMIK-2 Microphone!

full?d=1616435194.png

(March 22, 2021) Spring is nearly here, March Madness is in full effect, COVID (knock on wood) is nearly over... and miniDSP and AV NIRVANA have teamed up to deliver one lucky member miniDSP's all-new upgraded UMIK-2 microphone!!

Billed as a “substantial upgrade in performance and functionality,” miniDSP says its all-new UMIK-2 microphone ($195) offers the same ease of use as its legendary UMIK-1, but with more bells and whistles. Much like the UMIK-1, each UMIK-2 ships with a two-meter long USB Type C connection cable, an individual calibration file to ensure measurement accuracy, and full compatibility with Room EQ Wizard (REW) and Dirac Live Version 3 or later. Measurement capabilities are enhanced by a larger 1/2” microphone capsule and 32-bit analog-to-digital converter, which combine for lower noise and lower distortion. Additionally, sample rates are selectable from 44.1kHz to 192kHz.

The UMIK-2 doesn’t require a driver with macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. However, Windows users are supplied an ASIO driver for easy integration with most measurement and recording applications.

Sounds awesome, right? That's because IT IS awesome! So, enter to win and then visit miniDSP.com to learn about its amazing array of tools and toys that can enhance your audio experience!

I'm stuck with an old Audyssey microphone, so the UMIK would be a fantastic upgrade.
