Got mine in the mail the other day (thanks Jon).

Mine is set up for my Beyer CK930's. Now I don't have to run my bodies...so nice. I can put this whole setup together in about a minute. Caps > cables > IPA > mini to mini cable > M10.

Now I need to pick up a new (smaller) pelican case for my caps, and maybe a new bag because the tiny bag I was already using is too big. :D

Also planning on getting one of the cable builders here to make me some shorter cables without techflex for stealthy operation. Also need to have them make a right angle to right angle 1/8" cable to go between the IPA and M10.

Going to try it all out on Friday for Mike Cooley in Denver.

Here are some pics (with and without my windscreens).





...

Thinking about picking up an external battery for long shows/festies and just to have as a backup power solution. A quick Amazon search brings up this sucker:

https://www.amazon.com/Talentcell-Lithium-Amplifier-Multi-led-indicator/dp/B00MHNQIR2/

A) Will this work? (I know I'll need to make a cable for it).
B) Any better options?

I will have a 5V-->12V USB-A to 1.7mm adaptor cable ready in January, that will enable use of any USB battery.

Perfect! I have piles of USB batteries.

Not really, that design is done but I'm trying to finish a couple more designs before I order circuit boards.  Hopefully later in the month.

Finally got to run the IPA for the first time after a too long hiatus, for Kamasi Washington. Ran 4v>IPA>right angle mini cable>M10. I was about 30 feet from stage dead center. It sounds like it sounded, very good. Great job Jon!

Sorry I'm not advanced enough to upload it here, but if anyone is so motivated, I'll send a dvd. This might be the best jazz band going.

Marc, send me a PM and I'lll gladly UL that recording for you ;)

And I am DEF grabbing one of these! For the $$, size and sound quality, you simply can't go wrong! It's basically just a different PFA that actually has gain built into it! I am SOOOO excited to get my 2nd +60v PFA and [4] -12db MPD's back from Mr. Naiant, when he's all finished up with them ;D Then once I get all of that stuff back, I can get an IPA made for 2 channel's! I was thinking about getting a small external preamp for a small 2 channel rig, but like I said, for the $$ and size and SQ, I am just going to get one of these instead! If I pair this with an M10/DR-05/DR-07/etc, it would pretty much be the smallest 2 channel rig possible! mk4's/41's>NBob KCY>IPA>M10 would be a sick lil TINY rig!

Marc, hit me up if you want me to UL that for you buddy ;)

Does anyone know the pin assignments for the XLR output on the IPA? I want to try and make a cable myself and didn't see that information via search here. Thanks for your help.

What do you have planned for the other end of the cable?  Just continuity-tested the XLR > Stereo Mini cable Jon made to go with my IPA.

I don't have a fully functioning setup yet, so can't test directly for + / - / ground.  But if it follows the XLR standards with which I'm familiar (and are noted in SRC's post), and I assume it does, see parenthetical references below.

1 -- Sleeve (ground)
2 -- Tip (+)
3 -- Ring (-)

From the product page at naiant.com:

Quote
A stereo IPA has the left output on pin 2 and the right output on pin 3 of the XLR-3-M output connector.
(...)
A mono IPA has an impedance-balanced output with signal on pin 2 and an impedance-balancing network on pin 3.

The IPA looks to be a great solution for Nak mics
