In the full size picture zoomed in, they look red to me.  Thanks for the photo Justin.

I was joking, surely it's red.

Paid and switched my colour choice from purple to orange.

Hope this isn't a problem.

Thanks for your understanding and yeah, the weather is pretty wretched at the moment.

I sold my pico slim with life time warranty to get this product because Jason says its the best sounding pico amp he has built.  I am giving up the unique digital volume of the slim.  The size of the pico slim versus pico power makes no difference to me.  In fact I tink I will prefer the larger size of the power.  I am looking forward to this thing finally arriving.  I have a M8 on order too but due to its size I still want a pico amp.  Hard to beat for sound, quality build and athetics-ordered it in gray.

This question has come up few times -- The last day to place an order and get the pre-order price will be Saturday Feb 9.

 

Here is the link to the order page.  It can also be found on the first post of the thread.

I have a couple of questions about the pico power that hopefully Justin can answer.

 

1.  Is the background hiss level for sensitive IEMs less than that of the Pico Slim?

2.  At the lowest gain with sensitive IEMs listening at low levels, will you be listening above the volume pot's unbalanced portion?

3.  Do the two 9v batteries have to be equivalent, what happens if one dies first.  I guess the real question is are the batteries connected in series?

4.  Are there sound quality differences if you use different voltage 9v batteries, in the nimh variety they exist as 7.2v,8.4v, and 9.6v variants nominal voltage.

5.  What is the max voltage the batteries can be?  The voltage can reach 11.52v each for a fully charged 9.6v nimh version.

6.  Are there sound quality differences using batteries that can deliver more current (li-ion) vs those that can't (carbon-zinc)

7.  Does sound quality degrade as the batteries run down?

8.  Does it have a mechanism to let you know it's time to replace the batteries before just hearing distortion?

 

Thanks!
