Oh, what similarity! :o) Have You ever used Your mic. w/ Ekiga -like
software - i.e. can You use Your mic. for talking on Internet? -
Meaning this chipset hardware.

I'm convinced - I need to take a couple of Your lessons on web
searching! :o)

OK, in process.

No, I'm not testing it. I just want to make it using for it now.

OK. I have found that setting model to ref - adds more controls but it
does not add more functionality - so returned to defaults - i.e. no
manual specification of module to use.

Personally, I prefer acoustic sound.
