Are these adapters different from generic XLR/mini-jack adapters?
The Nagra SD has two 3-pole mini-jacks - one is stereo mic. level and the other is stereo line level.
To make it secure there is a custom clip-on the same diameter as the clip-on microphone head.
The SD has a choice of capsules.:
Standard stereo (red ring)
High quality stereo - capsules pair matched and shock mounted (green ring)
Omni mono (blue ring)
Cardioid mono (white ring)
There is also a choice of cables:
Stereo line - XLR-5F
Stereo line - 2 x XLR-3F
Basically the mic. cables connect to the mic. input jack and the line cables connect to the line input jack.
