Yes, it can be done relatively easily, but it is beyond the scope of what can be described on a bulletin board.

The following links will get you started.
Google for more info.

Thanks for your answer,

Why it's so much difficult to find diagrams for this equipment.

Why in the world would you build one when they are so inexpensive? Plus, if you go to their website, they have B-Stock and Refurbished units for half price.

[Steve Wargo] "Why in the world would you build one when they are so inexpensive?"

If you want to discuss price-
I built what I needed for an adapter for about $8 (US).

Can't buy a Beachtek for that amount.

If you don't really need the level controls, etc,
A passive XLR-to-1/8 inch stereo plug is pretty easy to build.

I am very surprised that there is no blueprint on how to make this type of equipment on the web. We can find for Kit mini35 an so, but not for this.
