Default AKG 601 cable really BI-WIRE?

i want to replace the phone plug with an 4 pole XLR for differential amp.

Anybody did this before? I read on one Internet post saying that the cable is actually a 3 wire cable not 4 wire, so AKG basically lies on this.

If you are going to the trouble of using a diff amp to drive your '601s, it makes good sense to replace the stock cable with a new up-market 4 way cable anyway and use a mini XLR plug, not the big ones.

I found a new post in the Internet from a guy with "made in Austria" cup and found out that his has 4 wires. Another post claims 3 wires with "made in China" cup.

Mine also made in Austria and indeed has 4 wires.
