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.

Mine came 10 days ago. I'm thinking the same thing

mk4 > schoeps KCY> Naiant IPA> m10

Schoeps CMC6 (MK22's, MK41's) / AKG C480B (ck61, ck63, ck8) / Telefunken M60 (TK61, TK63)  - for sale / DPA (4061)
KCY 250/5 and 250/0 > naiant PFA or IPA or Nbox 
Mixpre-10t / Mixpre-6 / Sony M-10 / Roland R-07 /Tascam DR-100mkIII / d:vice

Definitely a cool and TINY device :) An mkxx->KCY->IPA->M10 would be tiny and killer sounding, I bet :) Cant wait to hear some stuff from these starting to circulate :) I love that Jon can do the 60v Polarization for the Schoeps caps with these tiny lil IPA's as well!

So...for the Beyer CK930's would I be able to replace my mic bodies with these things? ...or would they go between the bodies and the recorder?

I'd be pretty happy to get rid of those bodies. CK930 caps > IPA > M10 would be pretty nice.

A new Dime account can only see whats available. You have to request a mod give you access to to downloading torrent files, or something like that.

Any resident cable builders come up with a way to make a U-shaped XLR? So the cable exits back in the same direction it plugs in, putting the cable along side the IPA and back towards the input side. Might make the IPA more "pocket" friendly.

Samson C02/Superlux S502/iSK Little Gem -> DR-680MKII
AKG CK63 -> AKG C460B -> DR-680MKII
AKG CK63 -> nBob actives -> Baby NBox -> R-09/DR2d

I posted a photo of my Schoeps IPA setup.  Jon made the XLR>stereo mini cable.
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.

I think you misunderstand the point of my query. True, the whole input connector+IPA+XLR is not all that long, but the cables are going out of the IPA in opposite directions. Place it in a fanny pack or some other  >:D like location and one cable, the other, or both are likely to be bent. Several people in the thread have mentioned still having a preference for the Tinybox configuration even if it is larger in volume, perhaps because the IO is on the same side, better for  >:D. My suggestion is a custom built cable/connector that makes the output cable run back along the IPA so it is then in parallel with the input cable so there is less stress on the output cable in a tight situation. Including the 1/8" output and using that would alleviate the problem (with a right angle 1/8" plug), but having a locking XLR is nicer. Essentially making a chopped XLR but with additional potting to give it the full U-turn bend perhaps?

I understand.  I think the IPA can have a stereo mini output.  The hole on mine is where the gain knob is, but I think the mini output is in a similar spot but on a different side.

I think a full-on U-shaped (180º) connector is probably overkill.  A right-angle connector with a subsequent 90º bend in the cable would accomplish the same goal.  But IME RA XLRs are pretty bulky.  Alternatively, you could use a RA connector on the input (much smaller), which would route the input cable back towards the output XLR.  Though this would put the IPA 'upside down', relative to your option.
