Hello, i want to reduce size and weight of my denecke 48v for wireless boom, someone knows a real compact one to use with a tx? Plug ons are not an option, thanks!

An old ASC "black box" P48 psu is a little smaller, but hard to find.  I still have one but it uses 22v batteries that are hard to find anymore.

Yeah, 22v mercury batteries, with one contact on each end, made for OLD radio gear I guess.  I bought the PSU new in the early '80s.  Works great if you can find these batts, but still not really a whole lot smaller than the Denecke.  Maybe you could make something from a kit or plans that had "flying" leads?  It's the XLR connectors than make the Denecke so big.

I've done some comparisons a couple of years ago:

48v
UMP II: 160g incl batteries)
92x57x18mm
PWLIII: 150g (inkl. Batteries)
115x36x26mm
Kortwich: 85g (inkl batteries)
78x40x22mm

Have the Ambient. Very light and reliable, works with normal AAs and draws little power. Only negative: It's nearly impossible to mount it somewhere without accessories.

I have the Ambient one too - I found a tiny neoprene belt pouch for generic digital cameras that fits it perfectly for a few dollars that I cable-tied to one side of a Rycote shock mount handle, with a Lectro SM pouch on the other side for a wireless boom. Feels about the same as a plug-on in a similar position.

I've been waiting for the Mini Papi. Did it ever come out?

Anyone know if it or the Ambient or any of the others can output line level?

I use the Kortwich power supply, very small and light, runs for a day on a 9V, and sells at a decent price.

you did not mention which wireless system you were planning to use the power supply with.  I used an areitec pico48 with my zax wireless,  before the 742 plug-on was available.  lightweight,  one 9volt battery.

Hi Christian
Are you using the VCP-M1 ?
There is no mention of a 9V powering possibility on the Kortwich site.
All the Kortwich preamps seem to be powered only through a Hirose.

The second item is the phantom power box. It runs on a 9V. Very satisfied with it. Works with all my mics (Schoeps etc.)
