I have an AKG WMS40 wireless emitter/receiver combo which I use with a condenser mic that needs phantom power and gets it from the emitter bodypack.
If I use a minijack to mini-XLR adapter cable, can I use this system to transmit any analogue signal, such as the signal coming from a headphone out minijack? Is there a danger of blowing up the device with the headphone out jack? (since the bodypack apparently provides phantom power through its mini-XLR connector).
The AKG WMS40 system also comes with a mono 6.3 mm jack to mini-XLR cable, which is supposed to be used to connect guitars to the emitter bodypack. Guitars don't need phantom power, do they? Yet it's apparently fine to use them with this system. So how does this work? Does this system automatically detect if the device you connect it to needs phantom power or not?
