Connecting Samson AM1 to XLR input

Does anyone know or has anyone used a standard female 3.5mm mini female to male xlr cable such as the Comprehensive 3-footer on B&H site http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...goryNavigation, to connect Sanson AM1 receiver to xlr inputs on camera such as Canon XH-A1. (The Samson AM1 comes with a 2.5mm to 3.5mm male adaptor)
Or do I need to buy Samson's special adapter from their website.

Thanks,
Marty

3.5mm to XLR adapter

Marty,

I'm currently using the Airline Micro series from Samson. I think that's the AM1 receiver?

Usually the 2.5 to 3.5 mm cable is all I need. Sometimes however, my needs change and I'll use a 3.5 to XLR, or 2.5 to XLR. I made both of mine from parts I purchased at my local Radio Shack. I did nothing special to the circuitry, (diodes. capacitors, etc.) I just followed the diagram that (if I remember right) was in the owners manual. Since it was so simple for me, I can only assume that the Comprehensive cable you found at B&H should work just fine.

BTW, I have found that (as expected) the output levels are higher at the 3.5mm headphone jack. (I sometimes use this jack when the occasion calls for it.)

Thanks, if the cable from B&H doesn't work I'll send it back and do as you did and make my own.
