The new Nbox: Platinum ABS
« on: October 28, 2016, 03:55:42 PM »
Today I received my new gear from Nick, Nbob actives for AKG CK6x capsules and...

The new version of Nbox Platinum with a nice and sturdy plastic case.

Hopefully it will pass through (maybe not the most effective but some) metal detectors. This is definately longed for by some stealth tapers (including myself).  :coolguy:

Looking good!  Are the dimensions of the new ABS plastic Nbox identical to the metal Nbox dimensions?

I don't have the regular Platinum but Nick said the dimensions are the same. Looking at the components inside the case I don't think it's possible to shrink the size without removing some components.

Here's the size of the ABS:
4.7x3.5x1.4 in (12x9x3,5 cm)

Cool stuff indeed. I still prefer the metal case for walking to my car from the venue in a shitty neighborhood at night. Getting hit in the head with the original (full of 9v batteries) will quickly change the priorities of any assailant.

Didn't want to start a new thread for this question.

Should I expect any issue bringing my baby nbox through security at the airport? I'm not sure that I can demonstrate how it works as there are no outward signs of operation.

Never have.  Bring mics, recorder and headphones if you have any concerns.  I have carried mine through SFO, LAX, JFK, McCarron in LV, Logan in Boston, Heathrow in London and never gotten a second look.  My old RBox on the other hand caught their eye every time.
