The AT2022 is a condenser microphone designed for stereo recording. Two unidirectional condenser capsules in an X/Y configuration pivot to allow for narrow (90°) or wide (120°) stereo operation. The capsules also fold flat for storage and transportation. Designed for general stereo recording and field sound capture, the AT2022 provides the spatial impact and realism of a live sound field. The microphone comes equipped with a stand clamp, AA battery, fuzzy windscreen and .5 m cable that terminates in a 3.5 mm stereo plug.
 

Phantom power and 3.5mm to XLR pair

Two questions regarding this mic:

1. I want to use this microphone with my audio recorders (Tascam DR-40 and Tascam DR-680), and also my cameras (Panasonic GH2 and Panasonic GH3). I am aware that the mic should not be used with phantom power, but I wonder if the small voltage produced by camera preamps is consider "lethal" to this mic. Neither of my cameras provide phantom power, but I believe all DSLR cameras with mic preamps produce a minimal amount of voltage for use with condenser mics. Unfortunately, I am unable to find technical specs on the mic input and any related voltage that may be present.

2. Does Audio Technica make, or recommend, a splitter cable that will allow splitting the 3.5mm TRS male plug to a pair of XLR male connectors?
After watching demo videos by Audio Technica, showing the mic in use with a DSLR, it seems that this mic is safe to use with a DSLR as they don't provide true phantom power.

The other part of my question is one that others have asked about, regarding a stereo splitter cable that terminates with two XLR connectors. Most of the XLR to XLR splitter cables I have seen are "Y" cables, meaning that they wouldn't split the left and right channels of the AT2022. They are meant to split a mono source to two devices. I suppose it would be easy enough to figure out the pin wiring configuration of this mic and wire up your own cable, but if anyone has found a stereo XLR splitter cable, please post it here for others to know about.
