Thank you for this, Walt. It rung a faint bell for me. From Shure's web 
site, it looks like the mic capsule and cable are the same for MX183 
and WL813. R183B is the capsule. C122 is the cable. Those two, together 
with the miniature 4-pin connector, are called the WL183. Connect that 
combination to the RK100PK in-line preamp, and you have MX183, which is 
good to go into a P48 input. Does that sound correct?

I'm interested, as I'd like to be able to run my 183s directly into my 
FR-2LE, which has only P48. But at $94.95 each,

I might be interested in a DIY mod that would work.

Rob, is there a chance you can point us to such a mod?
