Anyone else using an IPA to power Nakamichi's?
The IPA looks to be a great solution for Nak mics

I'm debating on whether the presence boost offered in the IPA build would be a good option for use with the Nak 300 capsules.

I would think you're better off with a stock, flat frequency response IPA and doing any adjustments in post where you have much more control.

I can't speak to the presence box, but with my flat stock version, very flat and neutral, just what I want. Love it.  :headphones:

That is the correct answer. Go Natural. What the hell am I thinking? I guess my mind is drifting while I wait through the IPA build period.

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

Any update on this?

Boa, did you get one of these? I have a pair of chopped CM300 (Walstabi) that I would to use with Sony M10. Let me know - if you did - what configuration you choose.  :coolguy:

I picked up a pair of chopped Nak 300's from waistabi.  I also ordered the IPA and some cables to run the mics.  Not sure when they will arrive or when I have a chance to run the rig.

I ordered the IPA with the following requests:

IPA:

Input: stereo TB6M (tinybox format)
Output: XLR & mini-jack (extended case)
Gain: fixed (+18dB)
Pre-emphasis: flat

Cables:

01. Y Input Cable 18" (TA3M (2) > TA6F. To run from each mic to the IPA input)
02. Y Output Cable 18" (XLRF > XLRM (2). To power the IPA via phantom power)
03. Stereo Output Cable 8" (XLRF > 1/8" mini-plug. To run IPA output into 1/8" mini-jack on m-10)

Here are cables #1 & #2:


Here is the IPA setup with cables #1 & #3:

thanks Boa, I am getting into this and some of it difficult to understand, this will help!

Here is my setup, B3 > IPA > M10.

What is that knob on the right, picture IMG_0907-vert.jpg? Is that the spindle? Used for adding gain to the TB3M input?

And the small white is the gain variable (slot) for the minijack next to it?

The left hole is a minijack for PIP, the white is a gain spindle, and the right hole is an external power input.
