I want go-go gadget utilities built in like Inspector Gadget. Maybe like a grappling hook to reach up to those balconies where I couldn't get a seat, or expandable legs or something.  ;D

Good, thanks for the update.  I was wondering whether to get the yellow or white gold bookshelves for my gold house.  I will hold off on the purchase until I can get a look at the shade of my gold MG NBox.

Go for the yellow gold to accentuate your "bling" factor. Homies don't do white gold.  ;)

just a FYI for those looking to build one of these boxes.

I used to own a JK Labs ECMS-23 for the MGs and I remember a conversation Jon and I had with regards to the cables/caps.
at some point in production of the caps, MG changed the length of the center pin on the caps that plugs into the bodies. I do not remember what serial # range the change occurred at but you need to be careful if you have m20, m21, etc to make sure the pin is the same length (or the active cable has play in the connection to accommodate slightly different length pins).
what Jon told me was pretty much of your caps are relatively close to each other serial # wise you should be fine interchanging the caps on the active cables but if there was a wide difference in serial #s to closely compare the caps to see if 1 pin stuck out further than the other.

if I remember correctly the difference in length was maybe 1mm or so but I can not vouch exactly for that #...

Didn't he also make a version of his box that was powered off of incoming P48 (so it didn't require any batteries in the box itself) or was that just for one of the other mic sets?

Every now and then I get the hankering to pick up a set of MGs. Every now and then....

I can't imagine you having any regrets in fulfilling that hankering.

I'd have to borrow a pair for a bit before dropping the beyers. We'll see, all in good time.

I sent an email to Jamie looking for an update, but I haven't heard anything from him since mid-June.

Don't think this is going to happen. I spoke with Jamie and he said that it would take more effort to make these than their is interest in having them made.  :-[
We only had a few people who were definite in wanting these and to have the electronics set up and have the boxes machined it would have been too cost prohibitive.

Nuts!!

I wonder if Jon at Naiant would be interested in tackling this once he investigates the AKG actives project?

...damn, damn, damn...
