Yes I have one for each microphone and a Y cable XLR to stereo mini to run into my M10.

I'll try to post some pictures soon.

Sorry to be the one to ask a dumb question..  Where is the phantom power coming from in this example? If I read correctly, the IPA can do 9V with its internal battery. I assume that is insufficient to power MBHOs (and Schoeps), correct?

But (again if I read it correctly) you can connect an external battery to the IPA, and then it can provide P48 -- is that right?

Finally -- it appears one could go Schoeps stereo pair>KCY>IPA>split XLR cable>deck, correct?  In this example, is it the case that:

A: The deck must provide P48 or
B: The deck can provide P48 OR you can connect a battery to the IPA and it can provide P48...

I'm very curious of that exact same info AJ :) I've been slacking on new Naiant products and didn't even know of an IPA until I saw this thread 8)

Thanks buddy 8)

EDIT: I cant tell through browsing, but this can be powered with Phantom Power of my 70d XLR Inputs ??? Or do I need an external powering option? I was going to get a 2nd PFA soon, but these look pretty cool! Very cool option for small setup & powering/gain! I just really don't need the gain of these! I guess a PFA is more what I'm looking for at the moment! BUT, I like that Jon is still expanding things and making new, very neat/cool products ;D 8)

So you can run caps>IPA>M10 easily! So badass IMO! Or I could run caps>IPA>70d, just not sure about the powering for the IPA ??? I know I'm overlooking it on Jon's webpage :(

Bean, read the above webpage:

POWER OPTIONS

The IPA has a flexible power supply scheme that can support:

+9V to +52V phantom power
an internal A23 battery (optional; not included)
external battery or AC adaptor via DC power port (+5V to +15V; +12V recommended)

You could use Capsules> KCY> IPA> Recorder. The IPA's internal battery would provide the 60v to the caps, and the IPA could provide basic gain. As Jon's said in the thread, this is a replacement for the tinybox.
Recording:
Capsules: Schoeps mk41v, mk4v, mk22, mk3 & mk8
Cables: 2x nbob KCY, 1 pair nbob actives, Darktrain 2 and 4 channel KCY extensions:
Preamps:    Naiant Littlebox, Naiant IPA, Naiant PFA, Sound Devices Mixpre6
Recorders: Sound Devices Mixpre6, Sony PCM m10
Home Playback: Mytek DSD 192> Adcom SLC 505> Marantz Ma500 (x2)> Eminent Tech LFT-16; Musical Fidelity xCan v2> Hifiman HE-400
Office Playback: Grace m903> AKG k701

I'm going to have to grab one of these!!  Slick setup, Is that a 5pin XLR on the IPA?? 

I would love to see some pics  ;D

Very nice ;D You could've also gotten the IPA with a mini 1/8" output as well, correct? Just trying to figure out why you didn't just get the mini 1/8" output on your IPA ??? Cant you get an IPA with the 1/8" Mini output AND the 5-pin XLR output, with an extended IPA case ??? That way you could have the Mini output AND the 5-pin XLR output, without the need for the 5-pin XLR>1/8" Mini cable? Sorry for ALL of the questions, but I just started doing research on these, and this is the first one Ive seen with some Schoeps ;D Did you do that just so you can run into a Preamp/Recorder with Balanced XLR Inputs/Phantom Power, as well as the 5-pin XLR>Mini cable that you have pictured ???

And Im with JBell, I need to grab one of those eventually!

Thanks Noah 8) I saw that, but just wanted someone to confirm that the IPA could be powered solely with my 70d's Phantom Power ;D Seems like its def possible! Since I no longer run a small handheld deck[M10/R9/DR2D/etc], a PFA would be better suited towards my current needs! But for someone running a small active setup, with a small deck, this would be a GREAT option for some compact gain ;D Especially for you stea&lthers out there ;)

Jon,

I almost always wish that I had taken a few electronics courses early on in my life before asking any questions that will have obvious answers to you.   Anyway, here goes.

Let's say that I would occasionally want the ability to run a balanced output originating from:  my Nbox ---> Line In --->multi channel XLR recorder.  I do not have a KCY Nbox, I have the Nbob version.  You already supplied me with a PFA for this Gefell/Schoeps rig but I wouldn't be using that option in this case.  My Nbox has a male, 3pin, mini XLR out.

What IPA config would you recommend to me to accomplish what I want to accomplish here?  Would I need two IPA's?

thank you,

David

You don't need an IPA, you need a Y cable, ideally with a resistor to match the output impedance of the Nbox (which I don't know).
