ipod connection

I know it's possible to get the 1/8" output of an iPod/Mp3 to XLR input eventually via adapters. But will the ohms and volts be OK going into a mic input rated @ 47k Ohms? do I need to be sure to use -10 or +4 to make the mic pre happy?Thanks!
Asked by: Ched
Two stereo inputs are available to send controlled signal to each of the five zones. Yes one could be your ipod.
