Of course...

All our passive mic splitters with isolation transformers have one direct out and one to three isolated outputs. The console that gets the direct out feeds the active mics and DIs.

All our active isolated transformer splitters have phantom power within the splitter itself, so you don't have to feed DC power down the snake cable. When you do use the individual phantom power switches from your console, one active splitter brand attenuates the channel by 10 dB and the other brand adds 10 dB of gain to the channel. It uses the dc voltage to adjust the gain remotely. There's even a delay when you switch the console phantom on, so you don't screw anything up onstage by mistake.

What do you think?
