Well then I would say TA3M, cheap and easy to work with, available everywhere, easy to shield the chassis  :)

Is that similar to an XLR connector ???

Jon, if i get bob to make the collette>cable and leave the other end UNTERMINATED, can u take it from there and put on the connectors i need to use a TB with it? could we do a 5pin mini xlr on the TB like darktrain is seeling or do each cable have 2 be terminated with their own connector ??
thanks fellas

I loved the cable but gave decided to ditch the bodies so there for the aki2c cable is useless to me


I will say if you run an unshielded junction box and or cable junction you will risk picking up cell phone interference. 


Yep, this is not a good idea at all. That AKI in the YS was pretty, but fundamentally inferior. This cannot be argued.

For the record I was instructed to build it like that... as small of foot print as possible with no junction box, I thought it came out good.

Straight from Schoeps:

"these resistors and the capacitor are very important for the right function of the cable. Without them you will get an interference between the two channels, it may even result in a double-mono signal. We strongly recommend not to omit them."

So my interpretation is that cables without the components should not be trusted

It's my understanding that followinbobs cables will have all the original schoeps components as they are in the kcy cable without the j box..unless the cables are configured for use with nbox tinybox or otherwise.

If you join the cables electrically you will need the components at this junction and either need to use a shielded junction box or some how included them at the junction and some how protect the components and shield or you will risk running into the issue above.

If you do not electrically join the cables then their is no issue - as Jon notes.  Nbox/rbox/jklabs don't electrically join the cables so their is no issue.

The issue is if you are using a hacked KCY into a tinybox for example.

Basically any of the vark cables or other hacked Kcy's/Aki's (such as the one that just sold in the yardsale) should not be trusted until the are retrofitted to spec

After months of deciding and looking, I found a real deal KCY for a more than fair price ;) No NBobs needed!!! I can't wait to get my new to me KCY Monday and my new to me KCY Littlebox sometime next week. FINALLY after 14 years of having a HQ rig, I am running 4 channel schoeps ;D I can run at two different stages at festies, and run comps at venues where ill be in just one place ;D

Congrats on the purchase.  I'm sure you'll be VERY happy with those.
