    I am not challenging your observation. I wasn't there.

    Re: Vandersteen Kento Carbon

    I heard the new KĒNTO Carbon at RMAF 2019 a few months ago.

    It sounded very nice.

    I'd enjoy listening to and getting to know the KĒNTO Carbon again in a more familiar environment.

    Thanks for the reply.

    From the original statement, I’d gathered there were no similarities other than the two you had mentioned. That seemed unusual in some ways.

    Re: Magico vs Revel
