(June 4, 2021) Welcome to Round Two! This is your second chance to win miniDSP's all-new upgraded UMIK-2 microphone!!
Our last UMIK-2 contest identified @Mike-48 as the big winner. If you read the winner's announcement, then you'll remember we revealed several ways to win free entries into this, our second UMIK-2 contest. To refresh your memory, AV NIRVANA members with 100 posts and 1000 posts, are going to get a boost to three and four automatic entries, respectively. And for those of you that are new, we'll award you two automatic entries IF you have 30 posts by the end of the contest (no post padding!). Also, we asked a trivia question (What movie was the first movie to be entered into AV NIRVANA's Time Crushed Hall of Fame?). @JBrax was the first to answer correctly, and he was awarded an additional FREE entry in this contest.
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!
