i got some Q's

1. which is better BEACHTEK with or without PHANTOM

2. what is the use of BEACHTEK w/ PHANTOM POWER if
your shotgun is battery powered??

3. how can i connect a shot gun (XLR) & a wireless lav

I'd look for an adapter that allowed either XLR or mini inputs. There are some out there.

Phantom power often gives the microphone better performance as compared to a 1.5 VDC battery supply. You have to evaluate the specs on your microphone to tell.

Having a Phantom power option is always better. You just have more options for microphones.
