Lack in quality even though it's relatively expensive
Rode PSA-1, 07.06.2021
TLDR: Hinges and internals are not greased from factory which causes unnecessary wear and noise upon use.

I have experienced what seems to be an "issue" with ALL PSA-1 arms. It squeaks and there's a metal grinding noise. One of the hinges can be oiled from the outside (which should not be ungreased/unoiled on such an expensive product) but there's a pin that is also ungreased on the inside that requires light disassembly to get to which is ridiculous. Once all this is done the arm functions properly. This is not a "problem" per se since Rode seem to not do this at the factory and are obviously aware since this happens to what seems to be everyone that bothers to even check their product before use, if they do not later notice it during. This will most likely never be fixed because of how long this product has been on the market.

The quality itself is closer to a 4 but gets a 2 star because of the problem above. Stability is decent but is a bit wobbly if your desk isn't stable.

Very impressed
Andy, UK, 17.01.2019
This desktop stand works well.

I used the standard base to clamp it to my desk (instead of the option to drill a hole in the desk) and this is stable with zero wobble in the base. Everything seems well made and sturdy.

Without a mic when you move the arm the springs move it toward a neutral position when you release the arm. After mounting a mic, that stops.

I mounted a Rode NT1-A Complete Vocal Recording on the end. With that weight on the arm, it is nicely balanced, easy to move, and stays where I put it without adjusting any clamps. It has a reach of more than a metre, and rotates very easily - the arm turns smoothly on the base, and the mic turns freely on the arm. Nice and flexible.

One minor downside - the arm has parallel metal bars which move closer or further apart as you move the arm up and down. These have squared edges and you can nip your fingers a bit if you hold that wrong.

Very happy - very good stand

Perfect combination!
Audio geek, 09.05.2021
As part of a studio rebuild I bought four of these booms to replace some aging and very twangy booms of dubious origin! Our main studio uses the SM7B and the PSA-1 supports these very well, balance is perfect and with a little patience feeding the mic cable through the channel in the upper leg of the arms and down through the centre of the base spigot gives a superbly sleek finish. As our guest positions were a custom made desk it was great to to use the circular flush desk mount drilled into the surface with its neat nylon collar (to avoid metal on metal) and a chrome bezel with the Rode logo on it. Nice touch of quality from end to end. The SM7B is hung from the spigot in it's classic formation and looks the part but he only point to note is the microphone's XLR connector casting restricts the horizontal movement a little at extremes but this isn't detrimental to normal use.

Overall the Rode quality is present and these booms represent excellent value for money. They have an adequate reach and style without being overly like staring at an angle poise lamp draped across the desk. Every house should have one!

Very sturdy and stable boom arm
Andy Ch, 12.02.2021
Fixed it to my kid's table and to a bookshelf, stays in place perfectly. It's built with some strong springs, have to watch your fingers when no microphone is mounted, the mount will straighten itself. Some lighter microphones can't be used with it unless you add some more weight to the mic -- a shockmount, pop filters and xlr cables will do :)
Rode Podmic (weighing almost 1kg) stays perfectly still on it. An Audio Technica AT2035 on its shockmount is just the right weight, a couple dozen grams less, and the mount wants to unfold from whatever position you try to put it into.
Overall a very good product for its intended use :)
