The Auray BAI-2N is a two-section broadcast arm with internal springs . 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-2N 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-2N allows for precise microphone placement.

The BAI-2N 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.

question

Would you say this is better than the Rode PSA1?
Asked by: Justin
The Rode holds up to 2.4lbs and has a 32 reach. The Auray supports up to 5lbs and has a 40 reach. I would say it would really depend on your needs. Look them both over and make an informed decision.

Asked by: Justin
If you are referring to the little silver piece that the mic shock mount would attach to. There is a knob you can turn to tighten it so it wont twist around. If that doesnt work get some Lock Tight put a couple of drops on the silver part where its held in place by the stand.

I notice the Auray BAI-2N mic boom arm does not include any type of cable. I checked online & the instruction manual that comes with the arm does not say how to add an XLR cable. Does anyone know what is the protocol to add a cable to the Auray BAI-2N?

question

Should I get a 10 foot xlr cable or 6 feet if I am using the riser with myou amp being on the desk nearby the mic.
Asked by: Justin
6 feet should be plenty.
Answered by: Mark S.

question

Can I run my own xlr cable through the arm? I want to use my red cables.
Asked by: Justin
As someone suggested in answer to a similar question, you could theoretically cut the ends off the included cable, feed your cable through, and then put ends on the new cable. But that's the only way you'd be able to do it. The existing cable runs through what looks to be an extruded channel that's part of the frame. Actually, two extruded channels -- one in the upper section, one in the lower section. There is no apparent opening to each channel except at the two ends, so a prefabricated cable with connectors could not be installed. As I said up top, you might be able to fish your own cable through if you wanted to terminate it yourself, but that would be an iffy proposition at best (what is the diameter of the new cable? Will it fit? Etc.) If you really want to use your own cable, I'd suggest cable tying it to the outside of each arm/channel section. Or just use the cable in there, which, honestly, is just fine.

question

The metal rod keeps spinning the mic down when I try to adjust hte positioning of the mic. No matter how tight I make it, it still easily moves. Please help... What do I do?
Asked by: Justin
Try some Lock Tight on the threads.

question

Does this have straps for cable management? I want to strap my Shure X2U to the arm, it makes it easily accessible while keeping it out of the way.
Asked by: Justin
No, it does not have straps. You can channel your cable through the existing structure. I use Tommy Tape (Self-Fusing Silicone Tape) to secure my cables.
