So far as I can tell from looking, there are no "linked stereo" pairs... Just convention of attaching the internal microphones as 7/8, and phantom power as a pair on 5/6, but as they still have individual mute/record/play and faders I'd expect them to also use simple individual panning controls.

Granted, won't know until the manual PDF is available...

Though none of the track parameters are selectable and controllable via discrete knobs. I'm not even sure where the overall recording level control is -- maybe there isn't one since there may not be an input mixer stage -- if each input goes direct to the same numbered track, then peaking the input gain would set the maximum for the track... Whereas on the HDx, multiple peaked inputs could be routed to a single track, so a record level is needed to reduce the summation of the peaked inputs.

So far as I know, a BALANCED (XLR) dynamic microphone is not affected by phantom power
