Taking into account the various Fostex-TH series builds and Denon-D series builds I have seen, the dimensions of the cup / frame assembly just do not allow for any recessed cable jack larger than 3.5mm to be installed. Most people that really really want mini-XLRs have to do what is called a "pig-tail" mod, which looks like THIS:
But what I recommend you do is just go ahead and get the SMC mod done, and then just grab a pair of THESE:
I believe Brandon can make these as well, so you could get it all done through him.
Thanks for the info guys!
I'm not a huge fan of the pig tails, so going the SMC + adapter route seems like the best option for me.
Follow up question. Why go for SMC over the 2.5 mm? Just wondering if there are pros/cons to go for one over the other.
