The ECM8000's ruler flat frequency response from 15Hz to 20KHz and omnidirectional polar pattern give you a clear, accurate reading of any room's unique sound characteristics.
Like standard condenser mics used for recording or performance, the ECM8000 is phantom powered, from +15V to +48V. We've even included a rugged carrying case, microphone clip and stand adapter to ensure smooth operation every time

The ARC uses Audyssey MultEQ XT32 patented technology to improve your monitoring system so what you hear is not affected by distortions caused by room acoustics. Near field monitor systems used in studio applications are designed to deliver sound without distortion or coloration. However when they are placed in a room, surrounding walls, ceiling, furniture, and other objects reflect and absorb sounds, creating complex distortions specific to that room. This ultimately causes them to lose the accuracy they have been designed for, and you end up hearing more of the sound of the room, than the music actually being produced.
Traditionally studio acoustics can be improved using acoustic treatments, but these are generally very expensive and require professional installations, which is often not practical in many of today's home and project studio. Other types of electronic correction systems use some form of equalization that works only on the frequency response of the room but worsen the phase response of what you are hearing. The ARC System 2 solves all these problems elegantly, with a unique, innovative DAW-based solution that works both in the frequency/time domain and is not affected by any of the drawbacks of other type of correction systems.
