Solid construction, simple to use, low noise
Edward5103, 28.11.2014
The Cloudlifter is for use with dynamic microphones and provides some pre-amplification to boost the signal before going to a sound recorder.

You need to connect things like this - it's really simple:

Sound recorder (with 48v phantom power switched on) --> Cloudlifter --> Dynamic microphone.

Connectors required to the Cloudlifter are XLR.

Power Supply: Your sound recorder needs to supply 48v phantom power through XLR. The 48v phantom power is needed to power the pre-amp in the Cloudlifter to then boost the signal from the dynamic microphone.

Build Quality: this is excellent. It has a solid metal chassis and metal connectors. There isn't really anything to easily break! It's really solid.

Sound Quality: this is excellent with no audible noise. I've used it to boost my Sure SM 57 microphone signal (1.6mv/Pa sensitivity) and also the Beyerdynamic m99 (2 to 3mv/Pa sensitivity) - both dynamic microphones. These were connected into a Zoom H6 sound recorder. The benefit the Cloudlifter provides is that you can keep the recording levels on the Zoom H6 set lower, and so the noise levels from the Zoom pre-amps are lower. The overall recording is then loud and clear with lower noise levels.

Reliability: this works very well and I haven't experienced any problems over a number of months.
