Default Re: Mbox mini 3rd gen unable to monitor playback after phantom is activated?

Very strange indeed.

I'd be willing to offer a wild guess, though; the mini gets its power via usb. When you activate 48v phantom power, there might be a short drop in power, that could make the driver software lose connection with the hardware. Could it be that your mini is connected to a usb port with not optimal power? The built-in ports on your mac should be best.
