a 1/4" to XLR cable should work...
the mic cable has 3 conductors, +, -, and ground
the black wire+ connects to 1/4" tip
The white wire and the ground (braid) connects to 1/4" sleeve (-)
if your receiver has a mic input, it already has a mic preamp.
you should be using a mono 1/4" plug, 2 conductor, not stereo 3 conductor
