Hi Mini DSP Team

i have been playing with the UMIK for a while, but the SPL readings are too low, for example, in a bookshelf speaker with 90db/w/1m sensitivity with 30 watts on it i only get 80db on REW,

another example, in my room now it has been mesuring just 30db, impossible, if i talk in a normal level from 10cm of the micofone it never gets past 50dB

i already reinstaled REW several times, checked the sensitivity switches inside the UMIK, switched usb ports, tried all USB conections, no results

any help apreciated
