The MIC version has very low noise mic preamps with up to 60 dB of gain selectable on a rotary switch which replaces the aux knob. The XLR has the appropriate 2400 ohm impedance and switches to 68K for the 1/4" plugs. (so yes you can run line level signals into it.) The MIC version also has phase reverse and inserts on every channel.
