I just took the plunge on a new pair of matched MK41s!

I'm totally psyched!!  Now ... I just have to hope some upcoming shows for which I have tickets don't get canceled and I actually get to use them. ;)

crazy upgrade! how much if you dont mind?  (total for nbox, cables and caps) ?

With the assistance of jerryfreak --- MK41 matched pair with ten year warranty, free shipping, and no sales tax (outside of Nevada) -- $1670.

Used Schoeps show up here all the time.  Save some money there.  I would always go for new actives though.

Took the plunge as well.

Ordered the NBob + babynbox combination and purchased a matched pair of mk41's.

Can't wait. This has been my dream rig for years.

Robeti and Guitard, congratulation for great rigs.

DSatz, it's very good idea to rent Schoeps. I record little, so the good old Nakamichi is enough for me. But if I record any music that I care about a lot, I rent Schoeps. Also thanks for explaining theory. I like it a lot to read these posts.

Next time we meet and tape I will bring both my pairs.  You can use my extra set.

It will be great to tape together again! I also hope you will have more free time in Prague.

I've pulled the trigger on ordering the MK41s, but I need to get the rest of the rig.  I've gone through the threads, and while there is a lot about the Baby Nbox and the Nbox Platinum -- I can't find anything the educates me on which one is best for general >:D taping.

Can someone please post the pros/cons of each box for >:D?

Thanks!

baby is the smallest but has no gain. it only comes in ABS
the regular nbox and its variation (plus/platinum, etc) is much larger, some are metal cases, but it is available in ABS on request. it has a gain stage so you theoretically make a better recording with most handhelds as youre going line-in to them instead of mic-in

Nbox is a preamp.
Baby Nbox is a battery box.

With Nbox you can use line-in on recorder.
With Baby Nbox you might be able to use line-in on recorder..  but might need to use Mic-in on recorder.  I've never used Baby Nbox, but people seem to love it and some seem to be successful when going Baby Nbox to Line-in on recorder.

I've used Nbox+ in the past and had great results unless I had bad batteries.

This is an accurate description.  Will add a few things that are useful.  I have both and use them both.  Each is a useful tool.  Sometimes one needs a hammer and another time a screwdriver.

BabyNbox runs on 1 9 volt battery and is most useful when  >:D in high security situations.  Battery lasts a long time.   I have never run line in with it on a Tascam DR-2D.     

NBox Platinum is a redesign of the original NBox with enhanced battery life as the biggest improvement over the original NBox (50 hours vs 10 for 4 9-volt batteries).  It is larger than the BabyNbox and depending on venue security and skills it may represent a challenge to get in for some.  It has gain since it is a pre-amp but the gain is not adjustable which was not clear from an earlier comment. 

The actives work with either box.  Also recommend the metal connectors if stealthing.  I broke the plastic connectors a few times but never broke the metal ones.

I also have both the Baby Nbox and the Nbox Platnium...for stealth I always use the Baby Nbox with one of my Sony of M10s, but I had the M10 modded by Doug from OADE  to upgrade the MicIn

Just my 2 cents...
