I have recently purchased a DPA 4099g and would like a definitive answer to whether plugging/unplugging with phantom power on is advisable. The reason I ask is that the manual states phantom power should be turned off when plugging/unplugging the microphone. I played a gig with a team of sound man at the weekend and when I asked for the phantom power to be turned off, one of the guys told me that it didn't need to be turned off and all the other microphones using phantom power on the stage have never been a problem with not turning off the phantom power. I have been Googling and can't come up with an answer. I obviously don't want to damage my microphone and this situation will keep happening! Other people have said that it 'probably' won't be a problem but 'probably' isn't really an ideal answer! Thanks!
