Default REW soundcard calibration?

Im a bit puzzled with the reading of the "soundcard calibrated" measurements.
The non-calibrated one makes more sense for me (especially for this setup).

Its from a normal UK room (built 150years ago?!), no treatment etc with two HM80 Yamaha monitors, no good placement..nothing (mic around 170cm away). I was just testing the PRM1 Mic and the Focusrite card.

How do you read a measurement like this? the calibration 'correction' make it flat.. ?!?!
Thanks

You have saved a room measurement as a soundcard calibration. The soundcard calibration should be a measurement of a loopback connection from soundcard output to input, not an acoustic measurement. Soundcard calibration isn't needed for most interfaces, but it is a good way to pick up any monitoring that is active (which makes the measurements incorrect).

Ha!!! very silly mistake!

I have multi-Ins and outs so I used a extra one for the loopback, but I didnt select the correct one... So the mic was doing all the work! heheh

Thanks a lot!

^ What John said.
What you've done does clearly show you one thing; how repeatable, or not, your measurements are.
