Great to hear, Matt.  And at a quite reasonable price (relatively speaking)!

When I send my set back for 4 meter cables and checkup....Milab billed close to $500...If replacement cables with Colette Is only $175 each wish I had gone that route...

Were the original VM-44 link cables modified and used in this application...or were new cables used?  Considering pulling the trigger on a pair of Classics, but would like to have a set off active PFA cables built for lower profile application.

An original set of VM-44 link cables were modified.  I'm having a second set of Milab active cables modified for PFA use too.  The pair of active cables that I purchased through Mattias were around $175 each ($350 for the pair).  Plus there is a shipping charge and I think there was a "customs duty charge" too.  I am extremely happy with my PFA setup for the 44-Links!

didn't want to start a new topic, appears my question is covered here but wanted to be sure.

i have the Milab VM-44 links and run them with the big bodies and interconnects into a PMD661. I've been doing this since 2012 and i always stealth these, and its becoming a nightmare with metal detectors, etc. the footprint is too big now. 

i would first like to get away from the PMD661 and it appears the IPA will let me do this (power the mics). i think this will be a better rig for stealthing, replacing the bodies with IPAs and running that into a M10 which i currently own which has little or no use on it.  this would shrink my footprint substantially, the interconnects I have are also cumbersome.

can i do this?

milab mic caps>original cables>ipa (2 of them?)> m10.

this would have me ditching the milab bodies, the interconnects and the PMD661 size....

i've also seen here that i guess i could have the cables modded to mini xlr and that would be a sturdier plug, ya, that milab 5pin plug on the mic cable seems really flimsy but i've no issues yet....should i leave the connections alone? how much to switch? i know i'll never need to go back to the bodies but if someone else did (i sold the mics, etc), then what?

thanks for any help, i was gonna email Jon but thought I'd check with the pros here first.
thanks again.

You should be able to run one IPA!!  It will provide power for both VM-44 link caps.   Even smaller foot print.
