Thank You for the clarification. I just wanted to be 100% sure before I ordered.

Thanks,

How does an IPA work for mbhos? do i need 1 or 2?
With the tb6m connector (tinybox stereo) you only need 1 ipa. You will also need a y cable Jon makes to run from your active cables connectors (2 tb3m) to a single tb6f that connects to the ipa.

hi guys, got a question about IPA

I own a pair of Schoeps MK4 capsules and a pair of Neumann AK40 capsules. I would like to have a Naiant IPA that can power both sets (not at the same time of course!). Is it possible? I read that Neumann caps have inverted polarization compared to Schoeps ones so I wonder if I would need 1 IPA for Schoeps pair and 1 IPA for Neumann pair or if it's something that can be "fixed" with some kind of adapter or maybe using a set of Active Cables with properly built for Neumann caps

thanks for your help

So I Have nBob AKG Actives > en3 Connector (nBox).  Plan to run this into a M10.  To mate the actives & IPA I was thinking of a short cable, en3(nBox Connector) > schoeps KCY.

What is the opinions on the gain options?  Should I get zero gain, variable, fixed?

Just heard back from Jon at Naiant.  IPA does not support nBox format (nBob Actives).  nBox needs 16v and the current version of IPA goes to 12v.  He said he plans to have a new version of IPA with 16v later this year.

If you get a set built to the Schoeps KCY format you can use the IPA!!  I had my MG actives built as KCY setup.  I don't have an IPA anymore, but like having the option if I wanted one again.
