Hi,
AC power is used, getting the required phantom power with a converter is possible, but I felt the battery life would be pretty marginal.

try out one of these devices...

http://www.presonus.com/firebox.html

you get a new soundcard and a pretty decent mic preamplifier all in one unit. I use a Presonus firepod(very similar) with an earthworks mic in my Smaart rig and it works great...

BTW, does anyone around here use smaart? I know it is tailored for the Pro Audio environment but alot of the tools could realy be valuable at home. definately would help with speaker placement and room correction.

it is a little pricey though -ak

Just a little.

I used it a couple of times and was quite impressed, but not enough to get to know it in detail.

Actually I was planning on just offering you the bare boards with documentation to assemble your own, however I would be happy to assemble and test a pair for you, but that probably is not going to be very economical. Send me a PM and we can discuss this further, let me know what you think is a reasonable price. I'm willing to sell the bare boards below their actual cost in order to recoup some of my investment in this project.

the SSM2019 has a lot to recommend it -- does even better when you use a very quiet supply a la Jung or Sulzer. I "kinda" stumbled upon the chip when looking at the noise measurements made on the various regulators in Audio Amateur -- the SSM2017 has been discoutinued and ADI recommended the SSM2019.

I haven't used Praxis, but I did use it's predecessor LAUD which was definitely the one to have at the time. I would expect Praxis to be very good, and probably a lot more flexible than Audiotester which is what I am using. Liberty provided good user support for LAUD, presumably they support Praxis just as well.

Don't get me wrong, I think Audiotester is a huge bargain for the price and seems to work pretty well. I am still learning to use it, and at the moment sometimes get results that seem more than a little questionable. (I use the alternate asio dll option as this is what my audio hardware supports. Asio support in this program is limited and buggy.)

I've used it. It's excellent.

You don't need the pre-amp, the Aud-pod interface includes it. In fact, save yourself a LOT of extra work, and just buy the Microphone/calibration file package from Liberty Instruments if you are serious about Praxis. It will all work well, right out of the box for you...in most cases.

In addition, the included measurement guides are top notch in explaining how to set up every measurement you might want to make, helping you get up and running even quicker.
