I personally think we could go with Cherry, it's cheaper and a bit lighter. I don't think the difference in sound will be huge. They say the sound changes are "subtle". But I'm fine either way. I can personally do any termination, I have adapters. 4-pin XLR might be the most universal? Maybe the first one who receives it can buy a cheap 4-pin xlr to 6.3mm adapter and pass along? Sometimes it's also possible to send items without custom fees if you send them as product samples, but it varies a bit from country to county. If we order from ZMF we could ask them to maybe send it as "product review sample". We might get lucky?
