Re: Any Interest in a Preon P1 Pass-Around

Totally. I’ve been close to buying one of these several times, but haven’t for different reasons. I’m pretty sure once I try one, I won’t be able to not buy one. My 3 Alphas and my 3 Betas could use some friends.

I would be so tempted to turn them all on at once all on the lowest setting.
I see this like the beginning of an episode of mister Rodgers neighborhood when he takes off his sport coat and picks out one of his different colored sweaters to wear inside.

Re: Foursevens Preon P1 Pass-Around n GAW

Pretty soon ya'll have one to play with all you want. Until then -
Much Respect. Thank You for posting some currents ;)

The Preon Model has evolved over the years. The legacy Preon' s used the current available at the time best options
for LED choices. This evolved into making refinements and updating the series over several years. There were many
special runs of the Preon series involving different emitters followed by limited materials releases leading to the
Preon MKII's. Now we are entering the MKIII series. The emitter and driver bring much to the current series.

Re: Foursevens Preon P1 Pass-Around n GAW

Hi All,

I am readying the package to go out to Paul6ppca.

I'd like to include a P2 with the pass-around. I think seeing and comparing the differences might help a few here.

Any objections to adding, testing, and trying out a Copper P2 MKIII with this pass-around? Or should it be separate?

I'm in for the Pass Around.

Still using the original P1 and have the MrkII, I'd be curious how the MkrIII stacks up.
