What microphone / SPL meter are people using for speaker calibration / MRC with the 861?

I found an earlier thread but the device recommended there is "currently unavailable". I have an SPL mic for REW, but it's USB, not RCA.

Will this Dayton Audio EMM-6 Electret Measurement Microphone work? It has a calibration file too.

Nothing fancy. It’s used for time response only.

That's the exact model I use. I've never had any trouble with it.

The Radio Shack one always works for me. Mine looks a bit more stylish than that one on eBay.

I use Radioshack for MRC, for calibrating level of speakers I use REW/MiniDSP umik which I found more accurate.

BTW Dayton AUDIO EMM - 6 should work, cause I used similar mics for MRC with success.

Does one just use a digital cable to connect it to the 861?

(bought the one linked on eBay)


various components

If you mean the Radio Shack meter, you just connect a (extra-long) line-level analog cable to the mic input on the 861.
