Not on topic of the new actives but joining the group with a ck1x set up.  Set of PFAs being made over at Naiant to be sent to Ted for terminating with the Lemo to be used with any P48 pre.   :D

No connecters just a dedicated active cable.  Got the caps yesterday, hoping the cable will be here and in the field by next weekend.

Allsum! Could you explain a little more?
So you just bought caps? I get the pfa stuff but who came up with the rest and how does it work?

AND DEAR GAWD LET THIS BE THE LAST EDITION OF THE AKG ACTIVE THREAD. 5 is enough.

Honestly, I don't know anything about it.  Ted had at least two working versions (one w/ 12v tinybox, that I think got "thrown away," and one with the Naiant PFA) so I would assume Ted came up with the way to use the Lemo with a 12v power source, maybe with some help from Naiant.  jmbell suggested I could go this route, so I asked Ted if he made the lemo connector cable for purchase to use with a Naiant PFA and he said yes.  He then suggested I have Jon over at Naiant make the PFAs with 15' leads to be sent to him (Ted) for terminating with the proper lemo connector.  Reasoning being, since it was already going to be a dedicated ck1x cable on one end, might as well hard wire the PFA on the other instead of using inter-connectors.

Caps arrived yesterday, cable is ordered and paid for.  Still at Naiant for now, but hopefully should be shipped to Ted in the next few days.

I am starting to plan the first concert outing with prototypes, and I had the idea of posting that sample while in the shower.. I couldn't resist ;)
