5-way's are common, inexpensive and very flexible.

Mouahahahaha, I love this. Since the grounds are already connected in the amp I wouldn't even need a switch or anything, no downside to daisy chaining the plugs?
Just make sure you only have one thing connected at a time, or you risk letting the magic smoke out!
If using TRS, be careful plugging/unplugging as you will make a temporary short if done while the unit is on.
This is true even when TRS is being used alone like Koiloco has?
That usually true for all 1/4 jacks by the way it is being plugged in. The short happens half way of inserting the plug between the channels. With most audio equipment is not bothered by this because it is of a very short duration. If you leave the plug half way into the socket it could be a problem if your turn up the gain when music is playing. You will not have that issue with the XLR connection. The same thing happens with 1/8 plugs as well. Just not be very slow in inserting the plug in the amp.
The XLR and 1/4 would be fine. The 1/8" is not going to work! There's a board behind (screwed) the front panel.
You could however move the 1/8" to the right side.
I'm glad you kept my dream alive after shattering it and smiling at the same time haha :P. This will get done! Not sure when (don't have any power tools) or a mini-x yet (should arrive tomorrow) but I will complete this! resistor network and all :D
