hi guys,
I need a final clarification about IPA for my equipment:

I bought a set of Nbob cables from Datfly some months ago. They should be v2 cables
see pic > http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k191/datfly/DSC01158w_zpsjzh5pq1u.jpg

that go into a connector that I plug into a 6-pin mini-xlr connecotr to a Naiant Tinybox (that should be v2.5)...

now what I would need to know is if I can use a Naiant IPA as a backup for my tinybox or of it can not correctly power the caps through Nbob Actives. I asked Jon but I could not clearly understand that (my bad, I'm a total dummy about this matter). It seems like the answer is YES if you have a KCY active cables set but I guess I've not...

thanks in advance!

It will work just fine. Jon can make the IPA with the same input as your tinybox. This is how you do it:

1. Point your browser to: http://naiant.com/studio-electronics-products/inline-devices/ipa-flexible-power-inline-amplifier/
2. select the stereo tb6m as the input option
3. Select whatever you want as the output (don't get surprised that a single XLR can cary a *stereo* signal. It can. But you might want the mini jack too)
4. Select what gain option you want (most likely variable spindle)
5. Purchase the IPA
6. Share your recordings with us.

I've included a screen shot to make it ever more obvious.

From what I was told by Jon over email, is that it works for KCY only. Schoeps KCY or Nbob KCY should both be fine, but needs to be KCY.

This is how I understand it!!  The Nbob configuration requires different powering setup that the IPA won't do.

not so clear to everyone then  ;D

from what I can understand it won't work for me unless I get my Nbob cables converted to KCY system...isn't it?

  PS:  I've been sketching a digital version of the IPA that would have both analog & digital outputs in AES3/SPDIF format (optical as an option) and would run on 5V-10V digital or 12V-48V analog phantom power (analog output only) or 5V external.  This would have 110dBA dynamic range and options for preemphasis or dither for 16-bit compatibility (should be about 100dBA in 16-bit mode), and the ability to sync units via aux SPDIF input.
so as someone who is always an idiot when it comes to understanding this stuff, if you are saying this version could support 48v mics, then I think it's a great idea.
The best part of a __box was the option to support multi formats. For example my tb does 48v/pip/actives and I love that so if the new IPA supported that too I would be super happy
Mics - AKG ck61/ck63 (c480b & Naiant actives), SP-BMC-2
XLR Cables - Silver Path w/Darktrain stubbies
Interconnect Cables - Dogstar (XLR), Darktrain (RCA > 1/8) (1/8 > 1/8), and Kind Kables (1/8f > 1/4)
Preamps - Naiant Littlebox & Tinybox
Recorders - PCM-M10 & DR-60D

No the IPA is a P48 device, it doesn't support P48 devices.  You should think of it as a microphone body that has a few added features.
ahhh thanks, as a mic body that makes sense to me now

Just received my IPA configured for Schoeps KXY cable, really neat little piece of gear.  Has anyone compared its performance to the Schoeps VST 62 IUg (discontinued, was an order of magnitude more expensive)??  Subjective opinions also welcome.  Just very curious...

Just got mine, I'm pretty fired up, it's so damn tiny. Really glad I got the recessed gain pot. A23 batteries 3.99 a two pack at Home Depot, anyone do better? First show most likely Earle Colvin this Sunday.  :headphones:
😈 Mk4v/41v>nbob actives>Baby nbox>Oade warm mod Marantz 620.

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

Also Oade warm mod 661, two functional HHB portadats and a Fostex D5 that works when it wants to.

Mine just came too. I got the spindle, which I still have to figure out.

I'm thinking mk4v> nbob KCY> Naiant IPA> m10 will be small and easy and run forever.

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.
