I've made a few changes to the Little Pinkie SE for 2017.
I am no longer able to source the oval illuminated rocker switches as the company who manufactured them are no longer producing them so I am now using a round black switch with integral red LED which looks really good when illuminated (in the ON position). Very nice switches with a positive action to them:
The Pinkie now comes with a brushed silver domed badge. This doesn't improve the performance in any way but it's always nice to have a badge and the "Little Pinkie SE" badge is digitally printed and protected with a polyurethane resin dome which provides a hard-wearing, scratch-resistant coating:
The 3 pin DIN socket has been upgraded to a gold plated contact type. The original Neutrik plugs had silver plated brass contacts which were perfectly good but I have decided to fit the more expensive gold plated brass types as these ensure better conductivity over time compared to silver which can tarnish / oxidise.
The power output lead is now 99.9% OFC copper Evolution Pro type:
Everything else remains the same..... the same high quality custom wound toroidal transformer (Made in England), the class X2 across the line filtering.... everything else is exactly the same. I could have said it was a "new and improved" Pinkie but it performs exactly the same but now with the addition of a few better quality parts.
I have added a new colour enclosure so there is now a choice of two enclosures. The original Dark Grey enclosure or the Light Grey enclosure. Both look fantastic in real life (that's what everyone says!) the photos don't do them a lot of justice.
Both enclosures are made from ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) and have an IP54 protection rating and a UL94 V0 rating. Pretty much bullet proof in service (not "literally"!) and not dust magnets.... good solid / practical enclosures that will last a lifetime.
I am now fitting top quality Schurter fuseholders (see photo).
