How do I run Audyssey setup if my receiver is 100ft away from its output? Do I get 100ft worth of extension cables for the setup microphone?

Yep, or if the speaker wires can be intercepted in the room, bring the AVR into the room temporarily for taking the measurements.

Wow, that's the only way I could think of but I guess I'm surprised it's that basic. Any advice on where to find such an extension cable?

Is it just an RCA cable? Perhaps a couple of these will do it: http://www.monoprice.com/Product/?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021808&p_id=651&seq=1&format=2

Is attenuation a problem at that distance?

Did you get this figured out?


I read elsewhere that it's actually a mono cable (not a stereo cable). I need to go about the same distance to get to my A/V equipment.

I would try using a 100' rca cable and just use one of the cables (not stereo). Then get a couple of rca to 3.5mm adapters to plug into the receiver and microphone.

adapters:

and one of these to plug the microphone into:
