Ok, I see. Thanks to both for the explanations You're right on what you're saying, it would be too many money only on shippings and without bulk discount. I'll think whether I pick one panel for my black case or not.

I'd like two panels (EU).

Cheers!

This one looks great (my group wants something more conservative). Can you change "IN" to "input" in the same size as the high/low font, and loose the "off" label, and I think you have a design that everyone can buy into.

Once you've revised it I'd like a copy of your fpd file so I can tweak it for the desktop version.

I have a few suggestions for this panel design...
First though, is the 2 in O2 a subscript or superscript?
Since there is a headphone symbol for output, I'd like a ♫ music symbol for input.
For volume, I agree to lose the off label, but would like a + & - at 5 and 7 o'clock, or one of those right triangles that symbolize less and more.
I'd like to see "gain" or "Av" added to the high/low selector.

I used arrows for Audio In and Out and a (stylized) sine wave for AC In, like you've proposed. I didn't use a lightning bolt for Power On (I think I've never seen it on a power switch, only as a warning of high voltage; it might, in fact, better befit the AC jack), but went with the common Power On symbol. For the Gain switch, I used a G.

The design of the symbols, including the O2 logo in the middle, started out with the in and out arrows; they symbols use a common grid, making for a consistent, simple, readable, stylish, robust-to-mill design, with the placement of the wave and the arrows adjusted vertically so that they are visually in line with the full-height (full-square) symbols.

They all use the same line width, requiring no (chargeable) tool change.

The size of the screw heads have been taken into account.

So much for the pitch talk. Anybody like it?
I really like this design, very clean, minimalistic.

Practically speaking though, the input voltage specs need to be on the panel, and the in/out symbols are a little confusing.

It seems to me that none of the jacks really need much by way of labels/explanation except the input voltage ranges (just in case) and the in/out jacks (since they are the same socket).

Just my 2c

If you can get the ♫ work in FPE let me know, else I’m going to have to make one and don't have time right this second. I believe we are still waiting on the exact measurements, that's why I’m not in a super rush.

Unless I'm mistaken, and you can confirm it with him, but I think RocketScientist already confirmed that the measurements where fine. The issue he was having with one of the jacks was due to the fact that it wasn't quite seated in the board completely.

I have to disagree about the musical note though.. I don't think it conveys enough information. I'd say stick with "input"

I don't know about you guys but I'd prefer something a little more traditional kinda like this:
