If the 10P can fit the Pencil 10.2 design, my scratched Alpair 10.2 can send back for repair.

Hi D, (Guys),
The 10P is a different driver to the metal 10, so existing Pensil box alignments won't match. You might still get a reasonable sound but not optimised.

Re "send back for repair", who's going to to this work for you? I've helped out a few members in the past but I've some way to go before I can do full time at the factory, so can't offer repairs. More important, the time needed to pick apart a driver, replace the damaged parts and re-align its power-train, ship it back and forth rarely is cost effective.

Thanks
Mark.

Guys,
I'm planning to be at the factory this Wednesday to complete testing of early production batches of drivers. I'll be posting the final data later this week to early next.

Thanks
Mark.

As Mark said, they'll probably go in, but don't expect them to be optimal; you'll be better off with the cabinet designed for them. Please be patient: I'll have a pensil for the new units worked up, but they won't be released until the EM specifications for the production units are confirmed. There's little purpose to trying to force the divulging of initial specs. and designing something based on those only to find a week later that some final changes to the production drivers have altered these sufficiently to require the box to be redesigned.

Thanks a lot. If possible, workout a solution to modify Pencil 10.2 to suit Alpair 10.3 is desireable.

I'm designing a new box for the 10.3 and 10P. When time permits, I'll look at the old one & see how the new drivers will behave in it; please remember though that I am not a magician, and there's only a limited amount I can do one way or the other.

Thanks for your reply.

If the new drivers permits a reduce of internal volume, modification would be possible. Moreover, it is environment friendly.

Hi Brian,
Either driver on a nice 2A3 amp should work well. Ummmmmmph......depends on your set-up requirements (room size, box type, musical tastes etc). Tell us more about your requirements.

Cheers
Mark.

Hi Mark,

Since I am listening to music at low volume every night till dawn, SQ is preferred to power 99% of time. A higher efficiency is good news for low-powered SET like 2A3. Actually, does paper cone handles high dynamics like metal cone? Moreover, which do think is better for Alpair 10.2/3, 2A3C SE or EL34 PP?
