If I was Chris Church I'd be modifying some CA14 omnis so they can be worn like these binaural headsets.

I'd be first in line to buy a pair.
Mics: Core Sound TetraMic | AT4031s | AT AE5100s | AT853s (C/SC) | Line Audio CM3s | CA-14 omnis | Studio Projects CS5
Pre: CA9200
Decks: Zoom F8 | Roland R-05

I like this rig a lot for metal detector stealth.

pardon my ignorance but when you say metal detector stealth are you saying that the metal detectors don't pick this up or just that the equipment looks innocuous enough that you don't get hassled?
Metal detectors have not been picking up the Baby NBox or mics. Deck goes in the pass through bin.
I have a similar setup but with the naiant ipa. This is my favorite stealth setup: mbho, neuman, schoeps or dpa caps > actives or kcy > ipa or nbox > pcm10.
Provides professional capsule sourcing > actives or kcy cables > ipa or nbox (prefer ipa for 3 gain selections and line in)  > pcm10 (if you can find one).
Also allows to upgrade to a full rig with mic bodies and a preamp or a quality deck.

Anyone try these? This should be the smallest rig.

I could have used these yesterday at my daughter's final college concert yesterday.  The band and choir went from the auditorium to the foyer that had this really cool echo effect.  I was in between many instruments and the choir was all around and up in the second and third level balcony.  It was awesome!  I have the video of it.
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.
