There are...but not where you would expect to find them! Music stores
sell small (and medium and large as well) "PA amps" which are intended
for use in clubs and other places where live music is played. These
have anywhere from 4 to 16 or more channels...all with XLR feeds
(sometimes with 1/4" jacks on some channels as well). Since XLR's
are standard for stage mikes (where there is potential hum all over
the place!), the amps used will provide them...
