    I don't suppose anybody has posted a mod to raise the phantom power voltage to 48V, have they?

    What do you mean, ity already puts out 48v (until you plug in a mic that is ).

    There have been a number of reports of them putting out as low as 30V (open circuit) and even less with a mic attached. That said, it may vary from unit to unit or computer to computer. I'm not sure.

    I have looked through the user guide and it doesn't mention anything about +48 DC (or any other voltage). It just says it supplies "Phantom Power"

    That make me suspect it's not full 48 V, because if it was, I think they'd say that.

    But that's just my opinion.

    According to Steve's Mojo Pie review it has 41.4V phantom power.

    Tbh I don't know if it's 48v or not, I do know it drops under load.

    It's a limitation inherent in the design, the opamp that drives the voltage mutiplier also acts as a HF oscillator and it shares supply and ground traces with other opamps.

    The real question is how much current can it supply? So long as it's at least 3mA, probably 90% of condensers will be happy.

    I agree, why not just buy decent gear to begin with/? Save your pennies.

    (In my case, id rather have a Genex or RADAR than a tape machine)
