Default ARTA configuration

it's first time I'm setting ARTA up. I hope someone will light me up.

what I have:
M-Audio Fast Track pro USB sound card with Phantom power
Dayton UMM-6 and Dayton EMM-6 which one is better to use?

I've read the manual and I think I need following:

1- an amplifier from 10 to 50 watts. is this a good choice? link
2- for measuring T/S I will need a jig with some resistors I can build. right?

what else do I need?

In my experience most sound-cards, even those bulit into laptop PCs are adequate for most use.
If you use a microphone that require phantom power, you need of course to select a soundcard that provide this. For T/S measurement you need stereo input.

The amp that you linked to might not be ideal. I believe that many chip-amps have floating output. This will cause problem when you feed output back to the input as in impedance and T/S mesurement. A traditional stereo amp will be easier to work with.

A jig for T/S measurement is described in the Arta / Limp documentation.
