I haven't stealthed with the IPA, yet. But judging from my first impressions, I think I also prefer the tinybox form factor for stealth because it seems to be slightly better pocketable. That being said, IPA should do the job as well. It's still damn small, just not as tiny as tb. ;-)

I mainly got it to have a backup for my tinybox (whose batteries are rather old) and as an alternative with exchangeable batteries (e.g. for festivals where I can't recharge tinybox).

That's what I would do with it too, use it as a back up for a tinybox or maybe as a stealth option as it seems slightly smaller, especially if you chopped off the XLR output end.  Of course, I don't even own any mics...

I just ordered an IPA for my schleps caps and nbob kcy, looking forward to playing with it. I was gonna pick up a backup PFA anyway but figured the IPA is more versatile in that I can run either my 661 with it phantom on or off, or my M10. And it's pretty freaking tiny.  >:D

Bean did you mean nbob/IPA?

Same difference!!  I think it only powers KCY version of the Nbobs.

hi guys,
I need a final clarification about IPA for my equipment:

I bought a set of Nbob cables from Datfly some months ago. They should be v2 cables
see pic > http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k191/datfly/DSC01158w_zpsjzh5pq1u.jpg

that go into a connector that I plug into a 6-pin mini-xlr connecotr to a Naiant Tinybox (that should be v2.5)...

now what I would need to know is if I can use a Naiant IPA as a backup for my tinybox or of it can not correctly power the caps through Nbob Actives. I asked Jon but I could not clearly understand that (my bad, I'm a total dummy about this matter). It seems like the answer is YES if you have a KCY active cables set but I guess I've not...

thanks in advance!

It will work just fine. Jon can make the IPA with the same input as your tinybox. This is how you do it:

1. Point your browser to: http://naiant.com/studio-electronics-products/inline-devices/ipa-flexible-power-inline-amplifier/
2. select the stereo tb6m as the input option
3. Select whatever you want as the output (don't get surprised that a single XLR can cary a *stereo* signal. It can. But you might want the mini jack too)
4. Select what gain option you want (most likely variable spindle)
5. Purchase the IPA
6. Share your recordings with us.

I've included a screen shot to make it ever more obvious.

From what I was told by Jon over email, is that it works for KCY only. Schoeps KCY or Nbob KCY should both be fine, but needs to be KCY.

This is how I understand it!!  The Nbob configuration requires different powering setup that the IPA won't do.

not so clear to everyone then  ;D

from what I can understand it won't work for me unless I get my Nbob cables converted to KCY system...isn't it?
