I kind of see the 4 pin XLR as an inbetween a 1/4 inch plug and a fully fledged dual 3 pins.
I want either one of the two later, fully one type or another... and I don't want to be forced to always use adapters, 4 pins XLR aren't always found on balanced amps (but you can correct me on that).
Right now I don't have a balanced amplifier but I want to buy a balanced DAC + Amp in the future.
I have chosen to go with Moon Audio, I like the images of his cables and work on his website. Silver Dragon for the adapter, just for fun, to try out silver.
Double Helix I'm keeping them in my pocket for the day I'll need a recable of a more high-end headphone... one that will actually need a cable will be my soon to be made Magnum, and I'm eyeing the Complement with Valab dual 3 pins... or a HP1 one day if the switches fail on me and that I need a cable make-over (I would put a Spore on this one! no actually it wouldn't fit, damn).
