My package has just arrived.
This one has "TB3M + minijack for stereo plug-in power" and a spindle.
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.
Mics/Caps: AKG CK61, Countryman B3(Hi Sens, 4.7K MOD)
Cables: NBob Actives
Preamps: Naiant IPA(KCY)
Recorders: Sony PCM-M10

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.

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.

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.

Which version did you pick?
Currently in use:
Recorders: Edirol R44, Sony M10 & Sony D6
Microphones: Milab VM-44 Links (cards), AT853 (cards) & Nakamichi CM300 (all CP-s)

Don't leave your A23 in the IPA between shows, definitely has a significant draw. Luckily I saw the red light with a few minutes to showtime, had to run out to car to switch.  :facepalm:  I'd left it in for about a month between shows, it only had 2-3 hours on it, I usually do two shows on one A23.

Marc, you should do a test for us to see who long those batteries will last  ;D  Last summer I ran them for 3hr shows and didn't use them past that.  Unfortunately, I can't use the batteries in anything else, or find rechargeable if there are any.
A lot of people run a race to see who is the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more.

I've only been brave enough to go to 6.5 hours or so. Should do a test.

Not that I'm aware of. 3.99 a two pack at Home Depot. I'll live with a buck a show.

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 ? Loving my IPA thus far two shows in. With four more Ina variety of venues to come in the next 3 weeks

From www.naiant.com:

The IPA has a flexible power supply scheme that can support:
•+9V to +52V phantom power
•an internal A23 battery (battery not included)
•external battery or AC adaptor via DC power port (+5V to +15V; +12V recommended)

I've only been brave enough to go to 6.5 hours or so. Should do a test.

I got about 10 hours on a fresh A23 over the weekend.  Did about 9 hours of recording on Friday with it.  Should have swapped in new batteries at the start of recording on Saturday but spaced it. 
Got about another hour out of it before I notice that one of the channels wasn't getting a signal since the battery died.

Does anyone know if there is a way to build one of these that only acts as the bodies to my mics (and possibly provide phantom power)?

I'd like to use a single box option to place between my caps (Beyer CK930) and my MP6, but still use the preamps in the MP6.

Would an IPA with 0db gain do this?

EDIT: Question answered from Jon via email. Sharing for everyone's enjoyment.

Yes, you'd need the TB6M input IPA with a Y cable for a pair of CK930s. 
Another option if you are feeding the Mixpre would be a pair of PFAs,
those would run on the Mixpre's phantom power.

Any advice on how the IPA could support a pair of Neumann KM140s?

It doesn't appear that Jon has a Neumann option. Wish he did though.
