|The USB481 from Citronic is a superb device. Not only does it allow you to provide phantom power to your studio condensor microphone it also provides a means for you to get audio into your computer via USB.
Phantom power is not normally available from a computer and even some professional audio mixers and amplifers don't provide the required power needed by condensor microphones. This clever unit can help you with both scenarios. It has a 3 pin XLR in and 3 pin XLR out to allow you to connect your condensor microphone to professional audio equipment but also has a USB connection for you to extract the audio feed direct into your computer too.
The USB481 output voltage is +48v DC. Whilst this is generally accepted as the industry standard we'd hate to see you damage your microphone so it's always worth double checking your microphone specification before connecting to this power supply.
As always we are here to help so please get in touch if you have even the slightest doubt about your microphone specification.
