I just purchased a Behringer Xenyx 802 mixer and have a question about phantom power, which might be a general question--not just about the 802.
There is a "Phantom Power" switch that turns it on for channels 1 and 2. When I turn it on with my condenser mic connected, everything works great: before turning on, no power and no sound; after turning on, power and sound. However, after turning it off, the power stays on for quite a while, eventually dying off, but it takes minutes sometimes.
Is there a defect with my mixer or is it normal to have the power remain in the system for a time?
