I would like to know if the XLR inputs of StudioLive Series III mixers accept line-level instruments without any extra impedance-matching devices.

Thanks in advance

Half of the microphone inputs on your StudioLive can also accept line-level signals. These inputs use TRS-XLR combo jacks that can accept both XLR and balanced or unbalanced 1/4” cables. The 1⁄4-inch TRS connectors bypass the gain stage and are scaled to accept line-level signals up to +18 dBFS.
