so the femto landed and I can't use the thing!  the 5 pin xlr they included goes to mini xlr instead of standard.  :banging head:  I was planning on having ted make a better/smaller one anyway but now I can't even play with or use it this weekend.  Heading to guitar center to look for something to hold me over.

that's normal. mini xlr inputs tend to be male. Look at the SD recorders.

Don't run an sd unit so had no idea.

Audioroot used to send the adapter with standard xlrs though.

edit:  I emailed them and they are sending the correct cable.

^^It wouldn't to hard to chop off the mini-xlr's and replace them with full size XLR's.  If you don't want to do it, you might be able to find a local music/electronic repair shop that would do it for you.  Maybe even Guitar Center might do it??  Just make sure that you/they pay attention to the pin layout.
That might be your quickest option...

They are sending the correct cable.  It will be a back up anyway.  I need stubby right angle for my bag.  the straight one from them is 3.5 inches before the cable even moves.

My new Femto should be here Wed!!

Gordon did you order the Femto from France (eBay)?  Were there any customs fees?  Is there a USA distributor?

Did you power with 9V batteries or use an external battery for powering?

Ordered it directly from them via ebay.  Paid the $30 for FedEx International and had it in 9 days.  No custom fees at all.  My understanding is there is now an $800 threshold so it was well under that.

So far just using 9v's.  See my post here

Tested some new ones at home yesterday and got 9 hours!

Thanks for the info!

I ordered a Femto yesterday.  Looking forward to running this in a week or two...

I also inquired about the uPRE MKII.  The uPRE MKII is currently unavailable.  Antoine does not expect this pre to be back in stock for 6 to 8 weeks.
List price for the uPRE MKII is 795 EUR.

Looks like you will be having quite the pre collection after the Pueblo lands as well.  I'd be interested in hearing your assessment after you have an opportunity to make comparisons.

I do have a fondness for pre's.  I always have...
