  It's not THAT bad...  The Dac-19 price of entry is not horrible for a good SE dac, and it is pretty darned good.  I'm not jonesing to upgrade from it.  Yet......
  Hmmmmmm....  Good point.  Perhaps more completely random than usual?
Uh, realized my post was completely random.....
I missed a good show and some great friends!
I've never had issues with the full size XLR.  I just picked up a solo -db and ALO Rx Mk3-B, and I don't see any real issues with the Kobiconn either, though I kind of wish it was straight instead of right angled.  As long as one excercises a bit of restraint when plugging and unplugging, I think the Kobiconn connector will be pretty reliable.  Given a choice though, unless I'm using IEM's, I like the size and firmness and heft of the XLR's.  They are less fiddly to me.
Possible interest....  East bay is best for me, but I'm mobile.

I'm not as flush as @SuperU   That and I bought a Dac-19 and a Cypher Labs Solo -db after hearing yours and liking it. Still, a dedicated portable stack at a fair price would be awesome. Somebody (not me, not sure how it works) needs to set up an editable google doc or something similar that we can post crowdsource features to.
