What does this thing look like? How does size compare to the Tinybox?

Looks the same as a standard Nbox..one pack of cigarettes vs 2 packs.

I never realized how small the nbox was till I saw it in person. Pics online I had seen didn't do it justice

Nicky- so you are using a different enclosure? If so, can you snap a pic or two of the original case next to the new case?

Same enclosure only the inside is different. Sizewise the tinybox= 1pk cigs and the nbox= 2pk cigs.

Tinybox=6.8 oz.
Nbox=19 oz.

Big deal, if using for open taping weight and size are not an issue.

For stealth if you can't manage 19 oz and the size of 2 cigarette packs, then your skills are weak
and you should probably not be in the stealth taping game.

If you can stealth with a tiny box and not with an Nbox, then your balls are smaller than a teenyweeny box  8)

If you can't roll low pro in the front row with a 722, a v3, CMC6's with KC5's, and no bag and no gear cooking or adjacent to balls, then you should probably not be in the stlx taping game and should give all your gear away to more worthy tapers :P

Only speaking for myself, it's not a question of if you can...it's a question of if the sound quality over a tinybox is worth the added hassle of stealthing a pre-amp twice as big.

If you think it helps to make a better recording, then it is worth it every time.

Only speaking for myself, it's not a question of if you can...it's a question of if the sound quality over a tinybox is worth the added hassle of stealthing a pre-amp twice as big.

I've got one of each and for my ears I prefer the sound of the Nbox but have no issues with the TB's sound. That said there are times when the need to swap batteries mid-show requires that I run my Tinybox and for that reason I like having one of each. Sounds to me that Nbox platinum will solve that problem for me.

I've not been able to do a side by side comp and understand that my brain is likely going to want the preamp that I have significantly more invested in to sound better but I have to go with what I think is true. I do find that there is more headroom on my Nbox recordings but I don't know enough about that to speak to the reasons why. I once f-ed the battery swap up and caught the Nbox as it was losing its juice and quickly swapped the Tinybox in its place mid song and the WAV files looked dramatically different. The Nbox portion of the recording had a greater spread in dynamic range while the Tinybox portion had more consistant peaks. Not sure if I'm describing this correctly.

Thanks for the info.  Sounds like I need to consider getting one.

After a brief hiatus, the boards are in production.  I'm hoping to have mine in hand within a month or so.

My nbox+ is in need of maintenance, so I have high hopes to be on a short list :)
