Hey all, I'm looking at purchasing a Rode K2 with no power supply. Would love to repurpose one of my extra Chinese tube power supplies (Nady, CAD, MXL.aka Alctron). Anyone ever attempted this?

blindjohnny said:...but going back to the original topic of this thread:
Wouldn't the fact that the Rode NTK/K2 require a positive ground psu complicate things a little bit? All the cheap Chinese psu's have a negative ground, tied to chassis ground. It would definitely require more than just changing out some zeners...
Anybody more knowlegeable on the subject of tube microphone psu's could shed some light on this?
