Staying away from techniques and methods due to trolls occasionally lurk here. Choose some good mic capsules (many options) > actives > ipa > pcm10. Quality sound and small in size. Down the road you can add mic bodies and an all in one deck (or a pre) for a full size rig.

In the 13 1/2 years since this topic was posted things have undoubtably changed.

So, what is now considered to be the 'perfect stealth rig?

Gear suggestions only please, techniques only via PM, dont wanna see the Hoff!

Thanks in advance
From the looks of the gear you have your in pretty good shape.

Assuming someone can't get their hands on an M10 or R-05 these days, it looks like the Zoom F1 and/or Roland R-07 are going to be the current stealth decks of choice.  We definitely don't have enough info on the Roland yet, and there are still some unanswered questions about the F1, though.

CCM4>Tinybox>M10 has been good to me.  Super long battery life on Tinybox and M10 both and is a rig about as small as I have ever seen.

I miss Josephine and her contributions.  I wish she would come back.

Yes, I guess I am, itchy for an upgrade though and there seems to be a few Schoeps caps coming though the yard and it got me thinking and doing a little research.

For ease of security etc I tend to always reach for the SPCMC25 and my pipsqueak but I have started to record with 2 rigs again so if I can stealth with 2 I guess I should go back to the TB and AKGs for a while  :hmmm:

One vote for mk4v caps>Nbob actives> Naiant IPA>tiny deck of your choice. I personally really like the m10 but some prefer the Edirol. This can all be had for around 2500 new and you should be able to find much of it used here. As for why I prefer the vertical capsules for lo pro, PM me if you like.

I'd add that I like the sound of this setup as much as I liked dpa 4022>Oade m148>Oade warm mod marantz 661. The added warmth was necessary imo behind the dpas but not the Schoeps. Plenty warm to my ears.
😈 Mk4v/41v>nbob actives>Baby nbox>Oade warm mod Marantz 620.

Open: 4v/41v>nbobs>nbox platinum>620
