The new Pensil 10.2 drivers are new and have run-in for around 24 hours only. I asked Kenneth to adjust the volume of his amp at low and gentle level.

The new Pensil 10.2 cabinet is larger (deeper) than the old Pensil 10 as Alpair 10.2's FO is 36 Hz, much lower than Alpair 10 and Alpair 10.2's Qts increased to 0.35. Pensil 10.2 can perform much more bass than the old model. In today's listening session, although the bass of Pensil 10.2 is not strong at mid volume, I felt the potential of Alpair 10.2's low end extension.

We also listened the sound of Kenneth newly made double C-core output transformers (on the left) on Opera M500 300B single end mono block power amps. They are well-matched with Pensil 10.2. The high range is refined and extended with detail, no harsh, very smooth and silky. The mid and low ranges are rich and balanced.

Kenneth's personal taste is a bit soft and comfortable bass. He blocks the vent of Pensil 10.2 and leaves small gap. Put a thick wood plate on the top of cabinet. Pensil 10.2's Users may not follow in these ways.

I invited Charles who is interested in Mark Audio to listen Pensil 10.2 today. Charles is a experienced audiophile and listened hifi for many years. He was impressive for the performance of Pensil 10.2 and was surprised at the very nice sound on Pensil 10.2 from a 5-inch full range speaker without crossover. It seemed that Charles did not believe what he heard was full range speaker. Good performance on Pensil 10.2
