Would it be safe to fire Phantom Power through one of those fancy new patch bays going from XLR - 1/4 Inch and 1/4 To XLR again?

hmmmm i'd say yeah IF the patchbay is wired for balanced ins and outs....if it's not TRS all the way through, i don't think it'd work.

CS, yes indeed is it is set up to run straight through it will work fine. As long as like WYD stated it is balanced all the way. Its not much different then then running a snake or in most studios the wall plates are made for that as well. Only thing there is they are usually cabled straight and then XLR. Some have gone the XLR to XLR route for that as well.
