Isn't the XLR connected to a specific MIC preamp?

Yes and no (how's that for an answer Wink?)
Both XLR and 1/4" input go through the same preamp but they see a little different conditioning before they get there.

The XLR connects to a is balanced low impedance input stage with a lot of gain. The 1/4" input is unbalanced, has about 20 dB less overall gain but a very high input impedance.

Hope that helps
