Is there such a thing as a low-profile / stubby PFA?
« on: March 31, 2024, 02:48:14 PM »
Just in the process of trying to limit the amount of connections with my decks and know that PFAs normally come in a full-barrel XLR at the deck end but was wondering if a shorter version is at all possible?

Having an F3, I’m trying to determine options that get me away from an nBox and allow me to go mics to P48.  I realize something like the CMC 1 U is also an option if I wanted to head back to Schoeps-land but trying to with all options.

Thanks all.

the circuitry more than likely wouldnt fit inside.

I think there is a stand alone pfa setup with breakout cables. that moves the circuitry out of the xlr etc.

I'll also add what Nick had to say about it:

Quote
There is no way to fit the pfas in a stubby..only way would be to insert a stubby to stubby pigtail

So that answers that.  Only workable options I'm seeing, unless I've got it wrong, is to run with the stubby to stubby pigtail solution _or_ use the existing Baby nBox solution or go with one of the Schoeps CCM solutions.
