AC power and Phantom power together??

Postby Hoang Vuong » Thu Sep 06, 2018 5:27 pm

Hi everybody, I know this is a dumb question, but I can't seem to find an answer anywhere.
I have a Sterling Audio ST66 Tube Condenser Mic and it has an AC power supply. Since it has its own power, I should NOT use the 48v phantom power from my Audient ID4, correct?

This seems obvious to me, but I've found I'm better off assuming nothing. Thanks for the help.

Strangely, this exact same question was asked recently (and answered) here... ... 11#p566211

What an odd coincidence...

Actaully, Hoang Vuong also posted this query twice, but I only approved one of the posts to avoid confusion.

However, I hadn't realised that this post was a word for word copy of that previous query, so I'll lock this topic as yet another duplicate.
