Been playing with the idea of putting an IPA in a more low profile housing.
There's not a whole lot in the case, and it could easily fit into a short length of 1/2" or 3/4" pvc pipe, and not set off walkthroughs.
Also considering midifying an usb external battery case, the 'lipstick' style ones look about right. Could maybe make a binder plug to usb A jack cable and a micro usb to 1/8" TRS cable. Then I could just toss it into the pass through with my phone.

Thoughts?

flashlight on a keychain is another durable housing

One thing this was missing from the Tinybox was the ability to recharge. I will be getting another one if this is the case.

IPA v2 ready for orders. Looks pretty slick.

https://naiant.com/studio-electronics-products/inline-devices/ipa-flexible-power-inline-amplifier/

what's the difference between "impedance-balanced" and "electrically-balanced" outputs? Why would I choose one over the other?

I'll probably pick one up, but isn't the picture for the V1?

It would be nice to see what the new version will look like.

Yeah, picture hasn't changed. I don't think we'll be seeing a picture until they ship. I may order in the next week or so but I need to read up on how long the internal battery will power my AKG nbobs.

I'm pretty much sold on the internal rechargeable. IMHO, I thought the IPA was great but the loss of recharging the inline power like the Tinybox was something this unit required. Glad v2 will have this.

If I'm going to run the IPA to an M10 , does a balanced output even matter if the cable is going to be less than a foot? I'm looking at going with the xlr-3 unbalanced option.

You will be fine with the unbalanced!!
