    coincident statement linestage(CSL) preamplifier

    Anybody own this preamp or heard it? So many glowing reviews but no dealers. Any input would be great!

    Re: coincident statement linestage(CSL) preamplifier

    Ive owned coincident speakers in the past 2 pairs, and liked them i had a problem with one once, called the company and the owner pretty much told me i was an idiot and blamed the problem on me. not a great guy. that was along time ago, but even though i really liked the speakers, i had them fixed locally(wasnt my fault btw) and sold them and moved on .
    ive had a couple friend who owned and really like their amps also and both of them had issues with them. so im not saying their stuff breaks but they are 1 for 4 in my world. and ive not tried or heard any of their newer stuff. hopefully they worked out the bugs.

    yes, I believe there are only 2 sources. Very simple preamp design.

    Re: coincident statement linestage(CSL) preamplifier

    I listen this pre because one friend had with Viola Bravo II and Coincident reference double speaker,
    then he sold to buy Viola pre
    I liked a lot this pre,very natura,open and transparent,seems similar to a transistor pre with the good things of tube
    They sell directly without shop and i think for his cost you cannot find better

    Not the only story like this. Good Sound, Unreliable, beyond horrible customer service

    Re: coincident statement linestage(CSL) preamplifier

    I and several friends own Coincident gear for several years now without any issues. These include both amplifiers and speakers.
    Israel (owner of Coincident) is not an overly friendly sort and is rather short and curt in his responses.
    I have not heard the LS so cannot comment on it's sonics but if I were in the market for a Preamp, it would be on my "must audition" list.
    FWIW YMMV
    My System:
    A trusty old Pioneer PD-65 as a Transport, A MicroRendui, a Merrill Heirloom T.T. as sources. A Lampizator DAC to PAD Cables to a SP-14 Tubed PreAmp, Coincident Frankenstein 300B monoblocks, & or Valvet E-2, Fusion speaker cables, AudioKinesis Zephryn 46 Speakers. pair Rythmik F-12 subs, EP2050, DCCA Furutech and Kaplan Power cables, APC power conditioner, Two dedicated 20Amp power lines. DIY corner traps and Acoustic Geometry Curves for room treatment.

    Currently have one of these on loan, and only a few hours in, but already v impressed. It sounds like a passive, with added drive, which in a sense is exactly what it is.
