The numbers have rubbed of the serial sticker on mine!!  :-\

Maybe it's one of those scratch n sniff stickers.

How's it smell?

Anyone know if all of the VMS boxes have the exact same battery tray? I would suspect that they would, but just wanted to be sure.

Thanks,
Bean

I did research on this the other night. The Schoeps VMS02ib AND VMS52ub have the exact same battery tray ;) The VMS32ub is 12v, so it has a different battery tray, and the only other Schoeps preamp ever made was the newer VMS5u, that I think is still for sale new, for a whopping $2,500 ;D 8) And the VMS5u is a combination of a VMS02ib and a VMS52ub, thats why it has a KCY input AND XLR inputs ;) Because the VMS52ub was strictly a BNC>XLR preamp, while the VMS02ib is strictly a KCY input ONLY preamp. The VMS02ib has separate outputs for M/S and regular Left/Right outputs, so that you can't get them confused ;)

It sucks there aren't replacement battery sleds available. Trust me, I've searched. If you have one that's usable, I recommend using it only if absolutely necessary (stealthing or you really need the free space in your bag) because they're nowhere to be found and they give out eventually. :( The VMS02IB will last damn near forever with a DVD battery though.[size=78%] [/size]

I know, right? I mean I understand that its been discontinued for many years now, but would it really have hurt Schoeps if they bought extra and had ANY in stock?!?!?! :( But whatever. Its not like its a deal breaker. I just don't like using rechargeable Lithium batteries as my main power source. I mean, part of the alore of the vms02ib for me was it being able to be powered with rechargeable AAs. Since I have a kickass Powerex/Maha AA/AAA charger, I would MUCH rather use rechargeable AAs on the internal of the vms02ib :) Plus, buying the correct DC connector for the vms02ib is $20 through Redding Audio, plus buying a DVD/Lithium external battery is added money I don't have right now. So it looks like I'll be running the internal AAs for the time being ;) That will give me some time to buy that special DC connector for the vms02ib through Redding Audio for $20, and I can start to build an RC battery NIMH setup like I used to have for my old SD 722 back in the day. Because I trust rechargeable NIMH batteries WAY MORE than rechargeable Lithium batteries. So I will definitely have an NIMH battery setup for the vms02ib for festies, and just use the internal AAs for indoor shows and non-festie shows :)

Thanks a LOT for the info Stu ;) ;D 8)

Thankfully, I have something in the works to at least have [1] EXTRA 02ib battery tray, so hopefully that works out and I do indeed get that [1] extra 02ib battery tray ;) ;D 8)

Mine is serial number 190, and only has the 20/40db gain settings, so looks like its going to stay on the 20db setting :)
