Maybe there is some kind of shorter boom mic stand than the one in the FAQ that is reasonably priced...that would solve the problem.

I use something like this. Works just fine for angling down the boom arm and then being able to angle the Audyssey mic up.

I'll check this out, but do you happen to have a link to the actual amazon page? This is just the picture of the item--I don't even know what to call it in order to search for it.

I'm going to get one at Radio Shack. At least their website says they have it. Thanks for the tip!

Still, it beats using a camea tripod (for ease).
I agree that the less expensive boom mic stands are not that sturdy. I have run so many calibrations that I have stripped the thumb screw on the Pro mic stand, and rendered a cheap boom mic stand almost unusable. I recently went to Guitar Center and selected a more sturdy (and more expensive) mic stand because I became weary of fighting the cheap one.

You can search for "mic clip" and find a bunch of options other than that one.
