    I wouldn't think so. Also, you disable your internal sound card and use the Tascam as a sound card. So, to unplug and disable sound cards every time is a pain. That's why I believe it is preferable to have a computer just for recording, and leave it set up that way.

    It probably makes a ton of heat, and by leaving it on, the heat probably took its toll on it.

    What kind of mic are you using phantom power with when it makes the whining noise?

    Does the mic work with the US-200 when you turn phantom power off?
