Congratulations on the LCD-3! (And the M8.)
Personally, I wouldn't think I could hear any difference between the two options, so I'd get the option that's most common - for potential resale of the M8, eventually -AND- for potential resale of your LCD-3 custom cables - not to mention the ability to use those cables with as many other amps as possible.
Which begs the question: Which of the two options is most common. Unfortunately, I think it's the dual 3-pin, which is much less appealing to me, aesthetically, than the single 4-pin. What to do?
At least you don't worry about the sound quality aspect...
