Anything that could be done to make them quieter would be appreciated. These would offer a truly highquality output option for those who want their documents to look their best. On the negative side, the KX-P retains its predecessor’s somewhat convoluted LED matrix front panel for setting a multitude of printer options such as the font, pitch, form length, quiet mode, margins, and macros. This noise reduction has been achieved by adding thicker and bigger covers, foam blocks, and technology that Panasonic calls Quiet Touch. It does get easier once you work with it a while, but, initially, keep a bottle of aspirin and the manual handy.

The pull is gentler, yet adequate, when kxx-p2123 curved top is resting on the paper, not down all the way. A typical 9-pin character uses a matrix of 18 x 18 dots, whereas a pin character uses a matrix of 30 x 24 dots and gets printed at roughly twice the 9-pin speed.
Panasonic KX-P Parallel Pin Dot Matrix Printer
Sound is measured on a log scale and each reduction by 3 dB decibels represents a percent reduction in volume. It does get easier once you work with it a while, but, initially, keep a bottle of aspirin and the manual handy.
Never print without the ribbon for more than a few lines, though. A pin printhead essentially has three offset columns of 8 pins each. Most pin printers sound like a dentist’s drill and preclude any conversation nearby. One way to reduce noise even further with this printer is to adjust the printhead gap with the supplied lever. The manual neglects to mention this. Although GEOS offers a variety of fonts, they don’t look professional. The printing speed of the KX-P is said to be as fast as that of the KX-P, but the real improvement is in the significantly lower noise level.
This is a gear-driven assembly that normally pulls the paper and keeps it taut. Anything that could be done to make them quieter would be appreciated.
A conventional nylon ribbon actually reduces the apparent sharpness of a pin printer. These would offer a truly highquality output option for those who want their documents to look their best. Although the nylon ribbons that are universally used by dot-matrix printers are economical and satisfactory, it’s a pity that Panasonic and other manufacturers don’t produce carbon film ribbons.

The chatter appreciably diminishes as you move the printhead closer to the paper subject to paper thickness. Enter the new line of Panasonic machines. Adding a Xetec Super Graphics Jr.
This can be quickly demonstrated if you print a few lines without the ribbon through a quality sheet of carbon paper placed over the printer paper. Single sheets or envelopes can be used after first “parking” the fanfold paper. For 64 users, resident LQ fonts such as these are vital.
Panasonic printers have always been known for their letter quality LO fonts, and now it’s comforting to see that their new product line has been made quieter as well.
The pin’s finer dot size and arguably better linearity alignment of dotshowever, might improve the appearance of the hardcopy. Programs that allow you to define printer configuration files, such as The Write Kx-p223, also work with a minor effort.
The KX-P should be kx-p212 attractive to most Commodore owners. By printing each line of characters in a single pass, it not only prints faster than its 9-pin ancestor, it also achieves smoother curves and diagonals on letters such ix-p2123 O, C, V and Y The downside is that most kx-p2213 machines are noisy. The KX-P becomes a seven-color printer by adding a relatively inexpensive color cartridge and motor option.
