I agree with what you are saying. I just need to enjoy what I have and stop obsessing, I am going to back off for a while. I have my daughter home from college right now with her fiancé and they are getting married in 10 days. I need to focus on that.

Everybody who has ever set foot in my room goes did you feel that, did you hear that. :-)

Merry Christmas Everybody!

yeah, sounds like you need to quit stressing about numbers and just enjoy for a while.



MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!

I can now officially attest to better sound from using a boom stand! Great advice. You MUST follow it. Only cost 20$ great use of 20$

My XV15se is really cranking out the Christmas music today! Surprising how much bass is in some of these old songs.

Merry Christmas!

What boom stand is being referred to for $20? I searched but couldn't find a link.

I only had about 45 minutes with my xs15se before I had to leave for the holidays. Sub sounds great!

I will have to order one. Is there any other type of attachment I would need to attach a umik or my ypao mic to it?

I don't know yet, but I have heard some people saying duct tape works well for attachments. :-)

Duct tape is very universal!

Zip ties would probably work too.

You shouldn't need a adapter bracket for the UMM-6 or UMIK mic on the boom stand. But you will need the adapter for the Audessy mic. Or duct tape or something. But the camera adapter bracket for the Audessy mic is cheap.
