Vikash, I was referring to the "commercial kits" and not diy designs/kits. However, I did want to indicate that diy designs are not neccessarily cheap. The cost-to-performance approaches a point where it boils down to just personal preference whether you want to spend the time and learn and seek the gratification of building it, or just buy it.

I set off in the same direction when I was there. Bought the ECM8000 and sought a few designs, kits, worked out the costs, time, probability of failure and eventually ended up buying the UB802. Wouldn't do it any other way if I had to do it all over again.

So... do I just hook up a resistor? Digi-key specs say the capsules use 0.5mA max... so... 82k ohms * .0005 amps = 41 volt drop... which would bring 48v to 7v. That a good thing? or am I a 'tard?
Someone should confirm/deny this for me, so i can order the UB802
