Default How do I connect a microphone to an amp?

I recently purchased a Sennheiser E845 microphone.

And I'm about to buy a RCF ART 310-A amplifier.
(link: RCF - ART 310-A )

I want to use these for beatboxing. What do I need to connect the microphone to the amp? Just an XLR cable? Sorry if this is a noobish question but I'm new to this. Thanks in advance! ^^

Just an XLR cable. Your microphone does not appear to need phaqntom power, so a cord should be enough.

Be aware that you will have the most basic of systems, the only control is the volume, so no tone controls.

Your speaker looks like a good product, but i will point out that most speaker manufacturers in pro audio make similar types of speakers, and some of them include a little more of a mixer. On the other hand, you may not want any additional features. AT your experience level it may just add confusion to have more features.

Are you purchasing these things online? Or are you buying local? If local, you should be able to take your microphone into the store and ask to try it with any speaker before you purchase the speaker.
