In reading through the recently released User Guide I notice the 6600M supports two different Mic inputs and in further reading there appears to be some obscure differences in them. Can someone guide me in which one I should use for a conventional desk mic versus say a rack system or some W2IHY equipment?  Thanks in advance.

Bill's advice about matching the input source with the audio input is dead on.

If you are using a balanced mic or outboard audio processing gear, then use the 1/4" TRS balanced audio input.  If you are using an unbalanced mic (dynamic or condenser) use the pseudo balanced 1/8" audio input.
