That why they updated, and using universal power worldwide, it is better to have separate power adapter then inside module, unless you want to sent the module to repair defective power source. It's better to have backup right away without all harsh of waiting and no power.
    Yes, that happened to me, the cable go to wall outlet not working, i have to digged out my old power supply to get different cable for that.

    It would be nice touch if pearl made stickers and sent them out to all registered users to match that output change in the back of the unit. Unless, someone else knows how to match them?

    It's actually very true. I cannot count the number of times over the years someone's unplugged something in my bands simply by stepping on or moving something.

    Just what I said. They made it more clear what the Input/Output is on the back panel.
    Sorry, I didn't know the term "back I/O", but I get it now.

I do like the Matt finish, it reduces ambient reverb in my practice room

    For those worried about the power supply/adapter maybe just buy a backup to keep on hand. I did that about 6 months ago and have put the original Mimic adapter back in the box as the backup and have been using the one I bought. It only cost me $7.00 from eBay. Made sure I bought one with the same stats as original. I got lots of warnings from Mimic users on Facebook ..... "oooooh, you're going to brick your module" .... etc.... (guess they assume I'm an incapable idiot .... LOL) I've used that backup and played every day for 6 months not even a flicker of a problem. I could link that power supply, but I'm sure the scary comments will come out again ..... So just contact Pearl to see if you can buy a power supply backup from them.

    In fact on the psu I was thinking that the problem when you strengthen something is you just transfer load somewhere else in the system.

    by making the connection between the heavy, strong 240v cable to the brick essentially unbreakable, if there is ever a violent pull that would otherwise have ripped the plug out of the socket (without actually breaking it), then all that will happen is either the other end of the brick with the fragile thin lv cable will bear all the force, or the connection between the lv and the mimic will.

    having destroyed psu bricks before by ripping lv cables I would definitely prefer the 240v cable just came out of its socket!

    I have the new model and can confirm that. Matte Black finish is looking very fine and high quality. No more dents in the housing.
    New powersupply and white labeled Output connectors on the back.

    Yes the red thing is the lock. I've never seen this arrangement before and to be honest I'm not sure that it makes much difference. I'd much rather the lv cable was more robust if they are seeking to make the psu more suited to the rigours of gigging. In fact I'd rather the unit was designed to take mains voltage with no brick at all.

    Thanks. It's nice to have Line out 1/2 labeled as Master Out L/R. Does that red thing "lock-in" the adapter?

    Looks nice!

    Do we know if it's a chemical, paint, sandblasted, or something else?

    Curious to find out to what extent they compromised between a more robust scratch resistant finish, a more superior aesthetic effect (say for example, a metallic sparkle fit for cars) and obviously cost of it all.
