"Get a Giant Squid mic, tell them it is for iRiver and they will give you a better wiring pattern. If you get the 800 series (Best Buy) model, get a right angle plug too."

Bob- Is the "Iriver Omni Mono Microphone" the mic you are talking about? Seen here: http://www.giant-squid-audio-lab.com/gs/gs-mono1.htm
And if so: Why do I need the right angle plug?

800 models have mic jack on the side, and straight plug will stick out or snap off or just get knocked around and cause static. 700 models have mic jack on the end and either jack type works well.
You are either growing or dying.

My goal would be to have a small set of mics to draw from (shotgun, stereo, and lavs), an XLR adapter/mixer (my Gs400 requires mini-jack mic level audio input), and a bunch of cables/connectors/etc. Furthermore, I don't just want to be able to handle my own mics, but I want a setup that is flexible enough to jack into almost any audio gear I might have access to at the moment, like other mics, soundboards, and mixers that are already on location. And now for the kicker, I'd like not to break the bank in building out this kit, so I'm trying to stay somewhere under $1K for everything.

Hello again

I'm broke and in a similar guerilla type situation. I'm reposting with what I actually chose and the equipment my BANK now currently owns.

Sennheiser eg-100 wireless lav system
Shure ECM-44 wired lav mic and 2 10' audio cables
Audio-Technica 897 shot-gun mic
K-TEK KE-69 boom pole with internal coiled cable for above shot gun mic
Audio-Technica 8415 shock mount for above mic

Shure A15BLA line adapter (converts line level audio to mic level)
Male to female, female to male, female to female and male to male XLR turnarounds.
Male to female XLR input/output to female/male RCA input/output adapters.
XLR splitter cable with at least 2 each of male and female XLR connectors.

Many blessings,
