Question Korg MR1000

Anybody knows if, for line input, I have to use trs jacks only with the mr 1000, or can I use xlr connection too?

I will explain my question. I connected the xlr dav bg 1u out to the xlr in of the korg mr 1000, but it is not easy to control the gain. I don´t know if it will be better to conectec the jack out (line out of the preamp) to the jack in of the korg. There are some users of korg mr 1000 here, please, tell me your experience.

The XLR of the Korg is for designed for mic input only.

You need to go in TRS from an external preamp.

Build or buy a pair of FXLR to MTRS cables for this purpose.

Using line in/ TRS, you completely bypass the recorder's mic preamps. Conversely, XLR always routes through the mic preamp.

Input impedance for XLR is 4.5 k Ohm and TRS 68k Ohm.
