March 16, 2022 – Los Angeles, CA – Audyssey, a leader in audio technology for the home, automotive and commercial theater markets, has unveiled the new ACM1-X calibrated microphone as a companion accessory to its recently announced MultEQ-X room-correction software. The microphone enables measurements to be corrected to a near-perfect match to those of a “type 1” reference microphone.
Each Audyssey ACM1-X microphone is individually measured at Audyssey’s laboratory in Los Angeles, CA. Once calibrated, a serial number is assigned, and a unique calibration file is created. MultEQ-X users who purchase an ACM1-X microphone then log in to MultEQ-X and, on either of the pages that have a mic selection option, select “Add New Mic.” From there they enter the microphone serial number, and the mic file is then downloaded and stored within the MultEQ-X application. Once the microphone and app are successfully paired, the user can attach the microphone to their AVR to perform MultEQ room correction to perfect their listening environment.
MultEQ-X is a powerful new software application for calibrating many home theater AVRs that have Audyssey’s MultEQ room equalization technology built-in. MultEQ-X brings users greater control over calibration parameters and more detailed information about their room acoustics.
MultEQ-X represents an important step forward in room correction in that it decouples the delivery of technology from the delivery of hardware. This new app-based platform ensures that MultEQ-X users will be the first to experience many of the improvements and advancements to the MultEQ suite of software/firmware room correction tools that are currently under development.
The Audyssey ACM1-X microphone is available now on Amazon for an introductory price of $79.99.
