**Separate power supply** "The Statement Phono has no peer"
This is latest version of the Coincident Statement Phono Preamplifier. Will consider trades.
Come to Midwest Audio in South Bend, Indiana for an audition. Combined with the Legacy Focus SE (unbelievably fantastic speakers that you must hear!) and a Triangle Art turntable, the sound with this phono stage is musical, dynamic with excellent clarity. This ultimate phono stage also has one input that allows it to be used as a very high end linestage preamp as well.
I am also an authorized dealer for Legacy Speakers, Auralic, Resonessence Labs, Oracle, Magnan, and Triangle Art, and NAT Audio.
“The design goal of the Coincident Statement Phono Preamplifier was to provide the purest, most transparent method of playing vinyl. There is no Phono Stage in existence that surpasses its combination of performance and construction. At its selling price, The Statement Phono has no peer.”
This component (which doubles as the finest linestage for your CD or SACD) must be heard. It is connected to the world class Coincident Pure Reference Extreme loudspeakers so the audition will be a revelation.
The Coincident Statement Phono Preamplifier is a high gain, all tube unit employing the highest quality MC step up transformers to accommodate virtually all moving coil cartridges. Due to employing only 2 all tubegain stages, high gain is achieved with ultra low noise, the absence of microphonics or hum. The RIAA curve is passive, zero feedback utilizing the closest tolerance resistors and polystyrene capacitors to obtain accuracy of less than .1 db deviation from 20hz – 20khz.All coupling capacitors are the finest and most expensive Teflon Film and Foil.
The 66 db overall gain coupled with low output impedance and the use of the finest discrete resistor mono volume pots allows the Statement Phono Preamplifier to be directly connected to an amplifier without the use of a line stage. The inclusion of a line input, selectable by a front panel toggle switch, can accommodate a CD/SACD player or any other component, thereby obviating the need for a line stage.
There are no circuit boards nor connecting strips to degrade the signal transfer nor deteriorate further with time. Everything in the Statement Phono Preamplifier is hard wired with the shortest signal paths possible.
The separate power supply has enough capacity and energy storage to power a 100 watt amplifier. There are separate transformers for the high voltage and low filaments. Furthermore, the high and low voltage sections have independent choke and large capacity filtering. All power supply capacitors are the finest sounding, highest quality polypropylene. No poor sounding,cheap electrolytics to be found. The power supply is the highest standard possible and provides the foundation for the Statement Phono Stage.It weighs more than 41 lbs!
The build quality of the Statement Phono is the finest available. It was designed with no cost restraints and the highest priority placed on sonic performance. It represents an all out assault on the state of the art.

From the High-endaudio website:
“The Coincident Statement (CSPS) is the finest commerically available phono stage I've ever heard. It is also superbly built (two chassis, hard-wired, 61 lbs combined), and it has the added flexibilty of high quality volume controls, and even an extra input, for those who do not want a line stage, for whatever reason, in their system. There's also a mute switch, and even two sets of outputs for biamping.”
“The CSPS is highly neutral (or "characterless"), very clean, extended at both frequency extremes, virtually noiseless, highly dynamic, fast, detailed and large sounding, yet with excellent focus, and has a very low sound floor. Importantly, it is never adversely effected by loud and complex recordings. If the CSPS has any obvious "weak link", I, and my associates, were never able to hear it, and I used a wide variety or recordings to expose it on an ultra high-resolution system. In short, the Statement excelled in every area.*”
"The story of this device has been a test not only of the Coincident preamplifier but of this writer. The high-level preamplifier input sounds exactly like what you plug into it. It is the most transparent preamplifier that I have ever auditioned. The familiar sound of my Marantz DV8400 CD player and my Sangean HDT-1 digital tuner was unaltered in any way. Try as I may the Coincident preamplifier has no obvious faults, you may disagree but your objections can only be based on differences in taste. Like a masterful painting, no single element sticks out. No color, no objects in the foreground or background, no perspective is distorted in size. You can look at it and instantly it makes sense. You will know exactly what the artist wanted you to see, but you may not know how you know it."
