I have this old Philips mic, it doesn't have a regular XLR connector but rather two strange smaller connectors, a three-pin and a five-pin.
Is it possible to connect this mic to a modern recorder, via an adapter or something?
Thanks in advance!

Those are DIN connectors. DIN line-level signals expect a different impedance than is usual for RCA or XLR connections. IIRC you can put a resistor in series to convert to RCA.
I'm not sure what signal level and impedance DIN microphones use. I'll see what I can dig up.
