Hi everyone, The Rai Penta is coming. Late, as usual from our side. :) Sorry. It just takes forever to get everything right when you don't have unlimited engineering resources.
Rai Solo will be a single dynamic. Similar shape to Rai Penta. But Rai Solo is smaller and made of Sintered Stainless Steel. While Rai Penta is CNC aluminium like the Empyrean.

The Rai Penta is available as of now in HK and Korea only due to (as in the case of the Empyrean) slow production rate. We will very soon make it available worldwide.


Excited to try out the Rai Penta! I'm going to see if I can stop by this weekend - I'm looking forward to seeing how it's evolved from the prototypes you brought to Korea last year.

With a N8 ?

Actually yes, we will have the amazing Cayin N8 at our booth. Some AK's as well.
But the Rai Penta is very sensitive and efficient. So you can run it out of any player.

Really looking forward to the Solo. More in my budget and I'm a sucker for a good single dynamic. The Penta looks beautiful though.

Wished the European market was not lagging behind Asia for a European product but I guess that’s how it is now... pretty interested in both Penta and Solo!

I mean its in stock, at the shops.

Ok got it, I ordered the CIEM so... let’s not OT too much :p

What does interest me is which shop is the Penta available in HK :D
Or maybe a rough timetable of when it will be available in Europe...
