This unit can supply +48 V phantom power to condenser
Use the PHANTOM switches on the top panel to turn the
phantom power supply ON or OFF for mic input pairs 1/2,
3/4 and 5/6.
Phantom power is also supplied to the TRS pins of
the MIC/LINE INPUTS Jack. If you connect a line level
device while phantom power is being supplied, that
device and this unit could be damaged.
Confirm that phantom power is OFF before connecting
a line level device to a MIC/LINE INPUTS jack. If you

Set the PHANTOM switch to ON only when using a
condenser microphone that requires phantom power.
Turning phantom power on when a dynamic mic or
other mic that does not require it is connected could
damage this unit and connected equipment.
When using condenser mics that require phantom
power and dynamic mics together, be sure to use
balanced dynamic mics. Unbalanced dynamic mics
cannot be used when phantom power is enabled .
Supplying phantom power to some ribbon mics will
break them. If you are unsure, do not supply phantom
power to a ribbon mic.
