Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-2 stereo Mic Activator, a must-have Tool for Dynamics and Ribbons microphone. Gives mics up to +25dB additional active output.
Cloudlifter CL-2 Mic Activator is a dual channel, easy to use, compact solution for common audio problems faced in the field and in the studio. Designed for all passive microphones - including ribbons- the CL-2 safely uses any standard phantom powered microphone input device to provide two independent channels of up to +25db of ultra-clean, transparent gain.
Cloudlifters dramatically improve the performance of passive microphone signals by driving stronger, cleaner signals over longer XLR cable runs, making them ideal for broadcast, live, and studio applications. The CL-2 is enclosed in a rugged steel enclosure offering excellent shielding and durability.

Cloud Microphones CL-2 Cloudlifter
I bought the CL-2 to help give my stereo pair of AEA R-84's the power they needed to sound like they should. My mic pre was a bit short on power to make the ribbon mics preform properly and the CL-2 did a fantastic job. Instead of having to pay thousands of dollars for another mic pre the CL-2 did that job for me and the name of the game is not having to drop large amounts of cash to get the job done. Read more
I would recommend these to any one. If needed I will buy more and not think twice. If you have ribbons mics and not enough power this is the way to go with out breaking the bank..

Great for what it is
Does what it says; not the nicest sounding clipping (when it happens) in the world but has saved my life in low volume and big dynamic range situations.
