Hi Don,

Breaking in period - Miniwatt N3 and currently Glow Amp One. Also have Chinese make EL34 PP amp which has more watts - will try that out later once 200+ hours are done.

How is you Miniwatt doing with your new Alp 10.2 Kens?

Actually, I'm using my TranscendentSound CFA.
99% of the time it's 3 1/2 wpc is more than adequate!

Yes, these drivers are impressive... even with few watts there seems to be plenty of music and I am getting amazed by the clarity - so revealing, yet not harsh.

On the cabinet side, excellent designs by Scott (Pensil's) Mar-Kens (Dave).

BTW, nice amp - you bought from Trancendent directly or put it together? How does it play with the OTL tech?

Hi Zia: I bought the amp partially wired---
Actually, it's not an OTL, it's a cathode follower. Bruce discontinued them to focus strictly on his 'signature' OTL's.
On paper, it's looks underpowered paired w/ the MA 10.2's, but in a real-world situation, it's a very satisfying pairing.
I may build a pair of Pencil's too. They look a very elegant speaker!
best,
don

Don,

I was a bit apprehensive after putting the boxes together - the Super Pensils looked BIG. But after veneering, finishing, and installing the drivers, they have a solid yet stylish presence about them, and definitely look elegant. Will post some more pics this week.

If you are planning to do with Alp 10.2, then size should be more manageable, and still look great, especially with your P10 treated drivers.

Cheers,
Zia
