I received the XY mount today. It's very nicely made. Perfect fit for the mics, my only concern is the mount isn't threaded making it impossible to put on my stand. Am I missing something?

Do yourself a favor and pick up the Rycote Invision mount that is linked above. 
Or, it should fit nicely in your A20.
Two mikes..  one shock mount. 
.....got a blank space where my mind should be.....

If the vertical post on the SRS XY bar is long enough you could combine that with a single one of the Rycote shockmounts referenced.  The orientation of the Rycote shockmount is adjustable via the knob on the side of the mount.  That is what I was referring to in my earlier post.  I have used the Rycote mount in conjunction with several of my SRS stereo bars and it works great!

Thanks for the info. The Shure mount worked great, as you would expect. I was not aware that the 3D printed one wasn't threaded, after all, everything thing else IS :-)

Just sayin'

Thanks

Wish I had known this before hand, but I guess it makes sense.

So I pulled my head out of my ass and used the 3D moth with my Schoeps mount. Works great. Feels sturdy. I generally have my fragile stuff in road cases so I should be ok.

Thanks to everyone for their help.
