Powerful, versatile, yet easy to use, the OmniMic V2 will become an indispensible part of your audio toolbox—whether for testing individual speaker components or entire in-place audio systems of every description. The OmniMic V2 provides quick and accurate measurements that will reduce installation time, saving you both labor and money.

The OmniMic V2's test signals may be initiated from the host computer, or from any audio CD player. System includes calibrated USB microphone, rubberized mic clip, software and test signal discs, 6 ft. USB 2.0 cable, desktop tripod stand, and carrying case. Compatible with Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

OmniMic 5.1 Test DVD now available! Now, make home theater measurements with the ease and speed of the OmniMic!

Measurements:

• SPL meter with A, B, C, or no weighting
• Spectrum analyzer, FFT, or RTA
• Frequency response with phase and impulse response
• Oscilloscope function to view complex waveforms
• Harmonic distortion: 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th harmonics plus THD
• RT60 reverberation: measures sound reflection
• Bass decay function identifies room modes and helps determine proper subwoofer placement
• Polar Plotting, in flat or 3D radar format
• Wavelet Spectrogram (color) to the Waterfall group
• Curve Math for live or added curves
• Auto-naming of repeated FRD measurements; updated
• Snapshots to PNG, BMP, JPG or WMF formats
• Measurement down to 5 Hz
• Energy-Time Curves, with configurable band limiting
• Supports new file-based microphone calibration
• Expanded Help Files
• Printer selection

Note: Windows 8 Users

Windows 8 has a USB recording bug. To get around this issue and use the OmniMic on a machine using Windows 8, please perform the following:

Find the OmniMic icon, Start Menu entries, etc., that you use to start the OmniMic software. Instead of left-clicking the icon, right-click and then left-click on the "Properties" menu item. A "Properties" window should open. Select the compatibility tab and find a checkbox labeled "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" There is a drop-down box just below the checkbox, set that to "Windows XP (Service Pack 3)". Then put a check in the checkbox and click "Ok" to close the properties windows.

Now when you start OmniMic using that icon (or menu item), it will run in the XP mode that avoids the Windows 8 USB recording bug.

Calibrate Your OmniMic V2 Instantly

A unique serialized calibration .txt file will be available for your OmniMic V2. Once you receive your microphone, click Calibrate OmniMic V2 where you will be prompted to enter the serial number found on the base of your calibrated OmniMic V2. After entering the serial number, your unique calibration .txt file will be available for you to download.

For updates to the OmniMic software please visit the Dayton Audio OmniMic web page.

Dayton Audio OmniMic V2 Precision Measurement System
Dayton Audio OmniMic V2 Precision Measurement System is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use.Fantastic tool, very easy to use. A little bit expensiv, but is mandatory in the toolbox.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seems great, but no decent tutorialI purchased the system to improve my theater. When I began trying to use it, I realized that using it is kind of left to 'try this or try that' and it seems I'm not getting anywhere. I am getting measurements but having a hard time interpreting the results. Do I need to run the entire test CD for this or just certain tracks for that? How do we average readings and then extract the corrections needed to acquire the EQ desired? After reading the entire Help manual for the third time, I still am foggy on how things are done. I yet have a million questions. A tutorial for dummies would be appreciated so dummies also would be permitted to acquire better audiophile listening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to set upSo far I just started using it , looks like a great asset for measuring speakers without breaking the bank! so far so good , the mic cable and connector could be a of better quality the cable is quite stiff and the connector should be a locking type .but overall its performance its good all around .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a good piece of deviceI'm starting working in this subject of testing sound and this is quite simple to use and quite accurate. Sw is quite good and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, very simple to useI believe this is simpler than I expected. I tried using an EMM-6 mic and ARTA, but couldn't get it to work. The OmniMic system is easier than I expected. Install the software (easy), load the mic calibration file (easy), and plug in the mic (super-easy). I ran some measurements on a speaker I was listening to at the time and it worked first time. I'm not good at anything that has more than two or three steps in the instructions. I;ve been trying to get my head wrapped around speaker design for more than 5 years. If the Omni-Mic is easy for me, it should be easy for anyone. If you're on the fence about getting one, don't let the fear of complexity stop you. It really is very easy to use,

Dayton Audio OmniMic V2 Precision Measurement System

Can I use OmniMic hardware with ARTA software? ARTA accepts *.mic frequency compensation file.

Asked by: SiaRez

Will this work with my Samsung Galaxy Tab S ? Thanks

Asked by: cyberboy
You need a Windows PC (or a Mac running Windows) to use the OmniMic software and obtain the full "plug and play" experience. However, the OmniMic hardware will provide audio input via any USB connection (similar to a USB sound card but with only one channel of input), and some tablets and smartphones can accept audio input from the OmniMic hardware, but you will need to use third-party measurement software that can load the OmniMic calibration file in order to receive accurate results when performing acoustic analysis. We have not tested tablets and smartphones for proper operation with the OmniMic (since that is not its intended usage), so compatibility depends on your handset or tablet hardware, your OS, and any required accessories that provide USB connectivity, and we cannot guarantee compatibility with a particular handset, tablet, or accessory.

Hi, friend how i know the exact volume to output when i measure the response? what is the distance mic- speaker? what track i need to make to measure the freq. response to a midbass? thanks

Asked by: lupio
Industry standards will show that the output voltage at the amplifier will need to be 2.83v when fed a pink noise signal. The mic distance standard is 1 meter, or 3.3 feet on driver axis. The track you play for the sweep can be pseudo noise which is pink noise, of a sine sweep which starts at 0 Hz and sweeps quickly to 20,000 Hz.These values are only required when trying to find the actual sensitivity rating of a given driver or system with 2.83 volts of power. If you are trying to measure the frequency response, a distance of 20-24" is all that is required with a lower drive voltage.

Hi with this we can measure t-s parameters?

Asked by: lupio
No, this only measures frequency response, phase, distortion, polar plots and waterfalls. You will need a DATS in order to measure T/S parameters.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-dats-v2-audio-test-system--390-806

Can this check for loudspeaker phase? To ensure if the speakers are in phase or out of phase?

Asked by: jptechs
This can check for tweeter or midrange polarity by a visual reverse null, but it will not tell you if one speaker is out of phase with another.
