I don't think I saw where he specified what the make and
model of the mic is. I've got an old ev 666 with a 5 pin I
think, I've got to look inside and see if xyl and I can see
what's waht to go to xlr 3 pin eventually <g..
That might help us too. He may wish to use an external
preamp and convert from 5 pin din to regular 3 pin xlr, then go in line level from the preamp from there. Make and model of microphone would tell us more.
