Sure, but most mic preamps have a phantom supply capability.

The only use for a separate phantom supply (like the Rolls) is if you already had a mic preamp that didn't offer phantom voltage.

Most people use the XENYX802 mixer preamp with the ECM8000 mic.

Be sure to check out REW Cabling Basics. It shows prices of the XENXY802 and hookups.

Also be sure to read the REW HELP files.

Thanks Bruce,
I was just looking for something less cumbersome than the 802 mixer. In that case would you consider the PB 23 ?

You may be missing my point, or maybe I'm missing yours. :)

The PB23 is a phantom supply only. The ECM8000 mic will not work with only a phantom supply. It requires a microphone preamplifier to bring the level to line. The 802 is a microphone preamplier (that happens to also have built in phantom feature).
