I have a Canon GL2 on which I installed a MA-300 adapter for XLR mics. As there is no phantom power with that unit, and because I need it to power my AT4073a mike, I though about plugging in a small phantom power supply like the Denecke PS1A
Now, will that work, or will the signal coming from the Denecke fry the MA-300? I dont know if a phantom-powered signal can get through the MA-300. would it make more sense to forget the MA-300 altogether and buy a Beachtek with phantom power supply?
It’s probably easier to have the adapter and phantom all in one unit.
For XLR to camcorder adapters with phantom power supply that also connect to your camcorder, you can use:
http://www.beachtek.com – new unit called DXA6A
http://www.juicedlink.com – includes preamp. Also options for 4 XLR input channels
