The MCACC calibration microphone cord on my Pioneer 1014TX-k snapped like a rubber band when I caught it on my big foot while doing a set-up. Attempts to use other microphones with an 1/8" plug have failed. The receiver shows a "microphone error" message after it makes it's first calibration sweep. Is this some special Pioneer mic? It looks like a cheap mono lapel mic. with a long cord. Any help or suggestions are appreciated! I sent an email to Pioneer inquiring about a replacement and cost, it's $36 plus shipping which seems ridiculous when it appears to be a simple cheap lapel mic.
