I too bought the UMIK-1 and had my first go with it the other day, quite complex and in-depth software but managed to get some measurements done, fascinating to visualize the speaker and the room response!

I started with simple measurements.

Left and right speaker on-axis from 1m. There are things that should be fixed. 1/6 octave smoothing. REW.

You should see mine! although after REW EQ calculations it gave me one point at 380Hz, -5.5dB, Q 2.87. Assuming I performed it correctly. I did it from listening position not the speaker.

Try to move speakers so that the 250 Hz deep becomes at least less prominent and less wide ih you can not remove it completely. It's probably floor refractions but it won't sound good never the less. Same will probably help and with mids one.

I did some more play with PEW. This is the result.
L+R measured in the place used to listening. (So kind of Room response)
I think I'm slowly getting there. (More PEQ slots in WiiM Pro will be appreciated, currently limit is 4)

I can close this thread with final thought.

I'm super happy with Wiim Pro Plus + UMIK-1 combo.
The only drawback of this combo is limited number of slots (4) in WiiM PEQ.
Hopefully they will add some more in firmware update.

However after digging into room correction I'm missing some advanced options
So I started to play with RPi.
