my apologies that this took forever, but anyway today i was able to do some tests and it was actually a big
surprise for me.
I´m not into magic boxes and vodoo-cables but the True Phantom really
makes a difference.
I´m not able to do double blind tests here but based on my findings I
would give the unit to one of our customers to have a listen under
I used a matched pair of MG M930 Mics and tested them with the antelope
audio Zen Studio - I understand that the TruePhantom makes the most sense
with preamps like that i.e. onbard preamps in an interface where not much
money and thought went into the design of the phantompower circuit.
One mic using the Zen´s 48V and the other using the true Phantom.
the noise of the TruePhantom powered mic was subjectively lower - and this
is already a low noise mic.
But the real surprise was that the TruePhantom powered mic sounded totally
different in the LMF Range especially within close proximity. Much clearer
and less distorting.
I´m trying to do some measurements but I don´t know if that makes much
sense because when you remove the mic from the setup it might not show any
