Several of the microphones I am considering are XLR4.  I know the 6500 is OK with the XLR3 but will it accept the XLR4?

The rear connector for balanced audio input will accept either a 3-pin XLR or a 1/4" tip-ring-sleeve plug.  Looks like you'll need an adapter cable.

I'm curious:  What is the fourth pin for?  Is your mic part of an intercom headset?
