I get that, but that is not this unit's target market. In the commercial studio world, regardless of the brand, the breakout cables on converters is pretty common, not limited to Lynx at all.The interest from this owner and general membership is for hi-fi use. There, a pig tail requirement is competing with this:
Those are both consumer/prosumer devices. Different needs and application.That aside, if you are going to have a pigtail, give me at least a stereo set of XLRs. This is what RME does
In a commercial studio environment, space matters for various outboard gear and once the converters are racked, they are connected back to a patch bay, you aren't dealing with the back of the unit unless it's maintenance or being replaced.Go ahead and make the box 2 or even 4RU and give me nice XLR connections. I don't want to mess with specialized cables like this. It is a hack, plain and simple.
