> What do you think about a mini 4-pin xlr? Seems like the best features of the RSA and standard size XLR.
I really thank you for the suggestion, but it may be a little too late to make changes. We are rushing ahead with the three options we know of. I'll definitely keep this in mind for a future version.
> How about a Pelican case for transporting/storing the M8 and accessories?
Hmm... Not a bad idea! Will look into that. We already sell a product in a Pelican case and people seem to love the portability.
> So is there a plan for that USB input to support Android's USB Audio?
Yes, M8 will support Android as long as the phone supports USB audio. It's not up to us, it's up to the phone.
> How much does the M8 weigh? I wonder how much weight difference there is between a "typical" standard xlr compared to a "typical" mini xlr?
We will be able to give you the answer in several weeks once we build these up and weigh them. However, I can say that the main sources of the weight are the battery and the aluminum case. XLR connectors will contribute to the weight, but to a lesser extent.
You're a Champ! You never cease to amaze and delight with your fast replies and willingness to listen to feedback, answer questions, and modify your M8 and other products to meet buyer requests. Centrance is "Tops" in my book. I'm really looking forward to receiving my M8 to compliment my Dacmini!
BTW, thanks for the T-shirt.
