The Auray BAI-2X is a two-section broadcast arm with internal springs and an integrated XLR cable. This versatile and sturdy broadcast arm is great for studio as well as home use. It's ideal for broadcast, voiceover, and podcasts.

The BAI-2X broadcast arm is designed with internal springs that provide a clean and sleek look. The internal balance springs are precision engineered to support and hold in place microphones of up to 5 lb / 2.27kg. The design also minimizes handling noise when re-positioning the arm. The broadcast arm features a standard 5/8"-27 microphone stud mount that is compatible with most shockmounts and microphone clips. The angle of the microphone stud mount can be adjusted and secured with the locking knob, and the angle is maintained when re-positioning the arm. This eliminates the need to readjust it every time the arm is moved. With an extension of up to 40 inches, and the ability to rotate the arm 360°, the BAI-2X allows for precise microphone placement.

The BAI-2X also features a heavy-duty combo mount that consists of a sturdy C-clamp and a heavy-metal desktop mount. The C-clamp is capable of fastening onto desktops up to 2.3" thick. The C-clamp's slim design minimizes the clearance needed to mount it between a desk and wall. The desktop mount detaches from the C-clamp and provides the option of permanent installation to a desktop with the mounting screws (included). A 14" riser is included for adding height to the broadcast arm in order to extend over computer or studio monitors.

Can you feed a new XLR cable to replace the cable ...

Can you feed a new XLR cable to replace the cable that’s already in it?
Asked by: Michael
Yes. A cable, without a connector may be fed through the arm, tho it would require a "snake" to push or pull the replacement cable through.

Is there an alternative compatible C-CLAMP I can use with this boom arm that will clamp a 3 inch desktop?
Asked by: My
Unfortunately, I don't know of any wider clamp that will be compatible with this BAI-2X arm. I would recommend using the included screws to mount permanently to the desk, rather than using the clamp.

What length is the XLR cable?

What length is the XLR cable?
Asked by: Richard
With the cable installed and laying the boom as straight as possible, mine is 183" from tip to tip. The length from where the mounted cable exits top to tip on mine is 20", and from the bottom to the tip on mine is 126". You can adjust these free cable lengths.
