Hi Blair,

The answer to all of your questions is 'yes'.

Not having any experience with professional audio equipment I don't know what is meant by 'phantom power' - perhaps someone else can explain this.

The reason why you were advised to use an external linear +/-15V supply is to minimize the possibility of noise getting into your microphone pre-amp. Linear supplies generate much less noise than switchmode supplies. However, a voltage doubler or tripler will need to use some form of switching technique, which can introduce noise on the 15V supply used to run it as well as creating a noisy 48V. Perhaps the easiest way out technically is to use completely seperate supplies for +/-15V and the 48V supply - both linear.
