The audio goodness you’re loosing to the XLR-1/8″ adapter is far less than the extra goodness you can acquire by recording your audio on a decent separate digital audio recorder. DSLRs are designed to take good-looking pictures, not record good audio. So, if you’re going to record your audio directly in the DSLR, I wouldn’t worry to much about a single adapter in the audio chain.
