New measurement mic in UK
I was just browsing the cpc/Farnell site and I found this. It's unbranded, about the same price as the Behringer, but comes with a measured response curve, and that would seem to be half the battle won. Anyone tried it?

This is an ECM40 IMG STAGE LINE microphone.
IMHO, it doesn't come with an individual response curve.

You need a 48v phantom power supply too, which is inconvenient, despite the electret name. Click on the "catalogue page" link for more details. It doesn't seem good enough for measuring. This is the problem with CPC; you get little, sometimes misleading, information. :)

Hey, I have phantom power. ;)

Milan, if you check the catalogue page in the link I posted, it states clearly that it comes with an individual calibration curve.

In fact, comparing it against the Behringer, it wouldn't suprise me if they are the same thing...

Hi, I'm also in need of a measurment mic and have been thinking of getting either the IMG Stage Line/Monacor ECM40 or the Behringer ECM8000. Does anyone on this forum have any experience with the ECM40? Does is actually come with a response graph? I know the CPC website says it does, but then they also say that the mic is unbranded.

Wilmslow-Audio quoted me 46 for the ECM40 and 410 for the more expensive MBC550 (mmmmm....).

It seems that the Behringer ECM8000 can be had for 34.50

What so you guys think? The ECM40 or the ECM8000?
