Fresh off the truck, a minty new set of Schoeps CMR's, Drooling at the prospect of running this setup, All i need to do is put a 4pin mini xlr on them, make a extension cable, a breakout cable or two and Jerryfreeak is putting together the Battery Box and I'll be ready to go.

Looks interesting... sounds like it's basically an Nbox though, right?

nbox has 20db gain which the cmrs dont. cmrs also have less sensativity but should last forever on a 9v bat whereas the nbox takes 4 9v bats and only lasts 7.5 hrs

Fresh off the truck, a minty new set of Schoeps CMR's

all things aside (of the technical aspects of the cmr's, like less sensitivity and no gain etc), this is my dream setup.

Please post pics of the final setup if you could please. Thanks!

correct, and thank gawd for rechargables  ;D I think I've saved AT LEAST $200 on 9V's since gettting them in August.

Looking forward to watching the progress of this project!

Good luck

Oh, correction, the CMR's now have plenty of ADJUSTABLE gain with the Littlebox, here is the near complete setup(just waiting on the "low pro" battery box for those "less than open" situations). But as you can see the CMR's plug right into the Littlebox, aand i would say the littlebox is a definately lighter than the nbox and overall takes up about the same amount of space and will run forever on the internal rechargable battery. Also in the pic you see an extension cable, and a couple breakout cables for the soon to arrive Battery Box.

Yep, very cool, and not to jinx myself but I got the feeling I will not be letting this rig go anytime soon.

This sounds like a logical replacement, and possible upgrade over the Nbox.  Even better just build a tiny battery box and run the CMR directly into Sony M10 or Edirol R09.  That would be the smallest setup.

Jerryfreak is building me a very small battery box which i should have by the end of next week which will be very handy. And for the life of me I can't figure out why more people have not tried this setup, Both Jerryfreak and Nottingham have had fantastic results. I owned a nbox a while back and while i liked it there were 3 things that always bothered me: 1- Battery Hog, 2- Weight, 3- Fixed gain. And this setup seems to have solved all those issues in my mind. The ability to run them into the small littlebox or tiny battery box is fantastic. Now i will get  to run it in the field 5 times over the next couple weeks, both open and not so much 8)

Just hazarding a guess:

You're trading size (smaller box) for noise (lower output sensitivity which requires more gain) and that makes some people squeamish? ("since you pay the price for caps, why not get the performance from it" line of thought)

Only other thought was that for a while, the chain was: cap > cmr box > amp which isn't nearly as attractive, and you've essentially chopped one link out of that chain. I know lutch had done that already (with the custom church pre), but I didn't follow the discussion anymore after the initial discussion.

That is slick looking though.

On an unrelated note; you have the same carpet I had in my last apt. I recognize that stuff anywhere. :P
