    Has anyone come across a female XLR cable or plug with a right angle facing up? Pretty sure the reason I can't find one is because the locking button on the connector would be in the way, but I thought I would ask just in case. I'm building a new shallow rack for my Axe-FX III and was hoping to use output 2 to feed my power amp so I don't have to cover up any other connections.

    The Neutrik ones can be rotated through different positions, but not "up". However, the angle they provide might help. Here's what the back of mine looks like, but I don't have them angled. Check pic 3 out.

    This is what I have now as well. I was hoping to find a way to avoid covering any of the other connections. Your picture illustrates the issue very well.

    I'm specifically looking for XLR-F connectors (for use with audio outputs). This is of particular importance because the female connector is the one with the locking mechanism. The lock button is what gets in the way when trying to angle the connection up on most cables. I've seen the style of connectors you linked from Seismic Audio. They have the same issue as the Neutrik ones; they can change to several different positions but not up.

    I figured this was a unicorn hunt. Just thought I would ask in case someone found something special.
