Yeah, I'd thought about that too. The fan to fan ones are quite a bit cheaper. How well do they hold up? I would say that for 90% of the stuff we do a 15ft fan to fan would work well and 30ft would probably do everything we need. And most of the times we've needed longer cables it's been a situation where our PA was too small for the job. Sent from my Moto X (XT1053) using Tapatalk
Don't know if you are still looking....Look at this on eBay:http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=221511676692Radial J48 Active Direct Box
you would want a fan-fan if you were connecting some DI boxes on the other end, or some other situation where you would have to add a cable to a stage box to connect whatever. If you are plugging mic cables in, spend the extra and get the stage box.
In this case it's a mix of DIs(2-4 right at the end of the drop snake) and a few mics. I'll probably just go with a fan to fan when I get one. I might just skip the mic cables this time and get a drop snake and a new DI. That would eliminate the need for a few mic cables so buying some wouldn't be as high a priority.

For durability and ease of use, I prefer a box. I dislike having to hunt down the right cable out of the spaghetti mess and the box protects things pretty well. Fan connectors can get beat up if you don't take really good care of them. If you're thinking about wired IEM, get at least an 8x4 now. I find a 50ft is long enough on most stages. 30ft often comes up short, especially if you're routing out of traffic paths. Don't think I've ever found myself really needing longer than the 50'.
