  • miniDSP UMIK-2 vs. Dayton Audio OmniMic V2

    Hi, I'm looking to get a speaker measurement microphone. But, I am unsure what all the specific benefits/downsides are between the UMIK-2 and OmniMic V2, besides the difference in price and Dayton's software. I would appreciate some help. I likely would not be using Dayton's software, which requires the OmniMic. So, if that's the main benefit of the OmniMic, let me know.

    Other than the "plug and play" software for Omnimic, one benefit it offers is absolute SPL accuracy, however this feature is not strictly necessary for most DIYers, so you may be just fine with any USB mic for a single channel measurement system. If you have no interest in the Omnimic software, then the UMIK-1 is more comparable to the UMM-6 from Dayton. The UMIK-2 offers some higher resolution benefits to both the UMIK-1, UMM-6, and Omnimic for that matter, so if you're in the market for a USB mic the UMIK-2 is one of the better offerings.
