Is the NBox+ or Platinum or whatever's current as spitty as the original?  :P

Now there's something I'd like to know.

Right. Well then, your initial question was either an overt attempt to start shit or you utterly failed to do any research on the topic before posting...

Troll

You're one of those people, clicking on all topics you know have been dealt with before - feeling the need to reply "this topic already has an answer - why don't you use the search-function?", thinking all members here sit 2 hours a day searching through the forum for old answers about topics that were people's opinion in 2009. I suppose this forum could be deleted by 75%, since most topics aren't new, I know that - but actually - if all members would start making replies where their opinion actually would contribute to the initial question - we wouldn't get replies like yours... right?

Whatever. First page of results clearly elucidates the nbox vs. tinybox feud. "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt"...

Don't know of any comps, but i will be running AKG CK61's > Nbox  and Schoeps MK4V > Nbox
at tomorrow nights Royal Southern Brotherhood show and seeding both shows if they come out ok.

My guess is the Schoeps will sound better and the show hasn't started yet. :-)
Anybody not doing anything, come on down to The Ardmore Music Hall on thursday and hang out
with myself and Nicky C and you can check out the Nbox Army in action.

Can't make that but look forward to seeing you next month when I am in town.  ;D

Look forward to seeing you again, maybe we can all go to the Ben Harper show.
I'm sure an MK6 version will sound way better :-)

Here's my honest opinion on the nbox platinum, after only a handful of shows. Very transparent with just enough of a hint of warmth. Do I think an Oade M148 sounds a bit better to my ears? Yes. But the size and battery life make that maybe 5-10% something I can live with. Oh, and it was like 400 bucks. I have no opinion on the tiny box save that the recordings sound very good. And it was also dirt cheap for the value. And Jon stands by his work. As does Nick, both went above and beyond for me, I'd buy another product from either in a heartbeat.

I used to drop negative shit but I guess I've finally matured a bit. I hate to see this kind of venom when both boxes are great. Save it for a truly crappy product. Like the Tascam 70d.   :-X  ;D

Only interesting thing is listening to the results using the CK61's + Nbox platinum  ;D

Of course this turned into a shit show but I'll give my opinion
Both are great boxes and both are made by quality people who stand by their work.
There is no one I know of who can honestly say either guy did them wrong or didn't stand by the product.
There is no one who can say they don't sound good, sure you might have a preference but you can't honestly say that one sounds bad
The biggest pro for me is cost, tinybox was much more affordable for me but that doesn't take anything away from nbox.
The biggest pro box vs box for me is battery life, the nbox plat wins here but that doesn't take anything away from tinybox
Bottom line is you have to see what works best for you as a whole and neither option is going to be something you regret from a build quality, sound quality, or support.
Mics - AKG ck61/ck63 (c480b & Naiant actives), SP-BMC-2
XLR Cables - Silver Path w/Darktrain stubbies
Interconnect Cables - Dogstar (XLR), Darktrain (RCA > 1/8) (1/8 > 1/8), and Kind Kables (1/8f > 1/4)
Preamps - Naiant Littlebox & Tinybox
Recorders - PCM-M10 & DR-60D

Well said...I've had nothing but exemplary service from both Nick and Jon both offer great products at a great value. Have never run the nbox pre's but all the pulls I've heard have been top notch, as have been the recordings I've done with my Tinybox.  Have active cables from both Jon (AKG's) and Nick (Gefells), and was even able to have my Gefell actives made to be compatible with my Naiant AKG PFA and Tinybox.  Have to say both went above and beyond from a customer service and product standpoint.  "Better" is in the ear of the beholder! There are many more other variables anyhow...
