What is KCY?
« on: May 19, 2018, 09:28:18 PM »
I'll probably make a fool of myself for asking this but I need to know.
It's not about fancy equipment. It's about the thrill, passion and hard work. Liberate the music!

Thank you, Terry!

So that's the official Schoeps active cables? Does it have any advantages against the Nbob active cables?

My Nbox has a ta6 connector and I guess KCY has some other connector?

The KCY terminates in a mini Binder plug and was originally designed to be run with either the VST 62 IU or VMS 5 U preamps also manufactured by Schoeps. The active/pre combo eliminates the need for the mic bodies

Schoeps also makes another active cable, the KC5 (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/386428-REG/Schoeps_KC_5G_Active_Extension_Cable.html), which runs between the mic caps and mic bodies...

I'm not familiar enough with the Schoeps line-up to comment.  Sorry...

The KCY cable uses a binder 711!

https://www.binder-usa.com/subminiature-circular-connectors-m9-ip40-cable-plug-connector-10.html

Nick can make cables in the kcy format for schoeps or other caps!  I have a Nbob Microtech Gefell KCY cable.  If I am remembering correctly I believe I have seen Nbob kcy cable for AKG caps as well.  It is a different powering format than the traditional Nbob cables.

I've owned both official Schoeps kcy and the nbob version. I like Nicks cable much more for 😈. It is much more flexible than the kcy although still sturdy.

Metalist, how will you power mics? You need either an nbob>Nbox or baby nbox>p48 deck, or nbob>Naiant ipa>m10. Or pick up a naiant pfa and run into a larger p48 deck. Personally I like to go small so I run my nbob into an nbox or baby nbox, and zero battery worries. Note that the baby nbox does not provide gain you have to run mic in to the m10 to get good levels. Which shouldn't be hard to do with the music you seem to tape. Apparently Schoeps>baby nbox>m10 won't set off wands a bonus. I like my IPA a lot but I detest tossing the a23 batteries after each show, I don't trust it to run more than eight hours so you can squeeze two uses. So when it arrives hoping I can replace the IPA with the baby nbox.

Everything I use is KCY based - nbox, ipa, cables, etc. Nick told me he could indeed make a KCY AKG active cable.
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 / Mixpre-3 /Sony M-10 / Roland R-07 /Tascam DR-100mkIII / d:vice

I have the Nbox Platinum ABS so this will be my lineage:
