    • Q:

      I was planning to use the AT8801 with my AT2035 microphone but noticed that the residual output noise on the AT8801 is specified as -71dbv while the signal to noise ratio on the AT2035 is 82db. Will the AT8801 significantly degrade the noise performance of the AT2035?

      Thanks.

    • Q:

      If "phsntom power" means "auxiliary power", why invent a different name? Does the AT2020 have two leads, one to the power source, the other to the audio unit?

    • Q:

      Does this phantom power supply isolate the 48v from its output?

      Hello, I have an old microphone preamplifier that can be damaged if it is connected to a phantom power supply.
      thanks.
