    Question

    Well, I bought the PXA-H701 and the RUX-C701, but didn't get the power cable, display -> DSP cable, nor the microphone. I'm just going to order the power and display cables from www.pacparts.com The question is what sort of microphone do I need for the speaker calibration. The official replacement one that pacparts is selling is $52.77. Would any standard PC microphone work or do I need to have this specific one. The DSP has the same mini jack on it that standard PC microphones use.

    I'll go home and look at the microphone when I get off work, but from what I can remember, it looked like a pretty standard miniature microphone (like the ones that come with cell phones, but without the ear part). The only other thing that it had was a little clip so that it could clip to the headrest. Its not totally necessary to use though...i managed to adjust mine manually

    it's easy for someone who knows a bit about what they are doing to adjust, but if you are really green...it might be intimidating, thus the mic gets you going making things a bit easier for you

    unixx - do you have any tuning experience at all?

    if so, don't worry about it

    if you have NONE, get a mic (if it's just a generic mic that is) and let it get you a baseline to work from

    turbocad threw his out, but I know he's got some decent experience in tuning too, so it's kinda a moot point IMO...lol

    I don't have any tuning experience. Per your guy's suggestions I think I'll just plug my PC microphone into it and let it auto calibrate. Thanks.

    I tried to use the pxa-701 measurement mic on my computer as a regular mic but it was horrible, it only worked if the mic was right next to my mouth so im guessing a regular mic will not work correctly on the pxa.

    with RUX in STAND ALONE mode you can use it with PC. You need the RUX always connected. You will not use the AINET protocol. You choose the INPUT (analog 1 2 3 or optical 1 2 3) and control the volume. You can also detache the RUX but then you will not have any control. Anyway you can control the volume by PC.
    Ask for any further question paololuca@inwind.it

    doesn't the mic on the 700/01 only help set up time alignment? I don't think it does anything for actual tunning.....

    now the pxa-h900..... that's a different story.... the mic also does full spectrum tuning....., but as far as I remember the 700/01 is only for time alignment..... red, correct me if I'm wrong....
