Due to the A23 battery, the IPA has maximum voltage supply to the mics of 8V (FET supply; the polarization voltage can be 60V), so the 16V nbox format won't work.  Also, an IPA only has a single-ended input, so one IPA can't support all microphone combinations that a tinybox could (that is, only one pair of input pins will be active with an IPA), and one IPA can only have a balanced input in mono and then only to a balanced-input recorder via the XLR output.






edit:  PS:  I've been sketching a digital version of the IPA that would have both analog & digital outputs in AES3/SPDIF format (optical as an option) and would run on 5V-10V digital or 12V-48V analog phantom power (analog output only) or 5V external.  This would have 110dBA dynamic range and options for preemphasis or dither for 16-bit compatibility (should be about 100dBA in 16-bit mode), and the ability to sync units via aux SPDIF input.

so as someone who is always an idiot when it comes to understanding this stuff, if you are saying this version could support 48v mics, then I think it's a great idea.
The best part of a __box was the option to support multi formats. For example my tb does 48v/pip/actives and I love that so if the new IPA supported that too I would be super happy

No the IPA is a P48 device, it doesn't support P48 devices.  You should think of it as a microphone body that has a few added features.

Just received my IPA configured for Schoeps KXY cable, really neat little piece of gear.  Has anyone compared its performance to the Schoeps VST 62 IUg (discontinued, was an order of magnitude more expensive)??  Subjective opinions also welcome.  Just very curious...

Just got mine, I'm pretty fired up, it's so damn tiny. Really glad I got the recessed gain pot. A23 batteries 3.99 a two pack at Home Depot, anyone do better? First show most likely Earle Colvin this Sunday.  :headphones:

Definitely a cool and TINY device :) An mkxx->KCY->IPA->M10 would be tiny and killer sounding, I bet :) Cant wait to hear some stuff from these starting to circulate :) I love that Jon can do the 60v Polarization for the Schoeps caps with these tiny lil IPA's as well!

So...for the Beyer CK930's would I be able to replace my mic bodies with these things? ...or would they go between the bodies and the recorder?

I'd be pretty happy to get rid of those bodies. CK930 caps > IPA > M10 would be pretty nice.

Yes.  You'd want to have some sort of adaptor cable to run two capsules into one IPA; I'd recommend the tinybox TB6M input format.

The IPA won't help with the 658 (handicap) series I dropped on your elders last night though  ;D
