Hi, I run a corp security team and we have been quoted the items below for an event. As I've never used the wireless versions before only the 3 wire kits, there doesn't seem to be a mic for this. Surely that is wrong but can anyone confirm that the Y adapter also has the mic as part of its features...

PMKN4147 pinout? (XPR2500/CM300d/CM200d)

I was wondering if the PMKN4147 USB-to-Mic-RJ45 contained any active components or if it's just a dumb cable like the ones for the older XPR's accy ports on the back.
