Selling Coincident statement line stage tube preamp. It is in mint condition. Only 8 months old. Original owner. This is an awesome preamp, so utterly transparent!
"Within the first minute of listening to the Coincident Statement, I realized that this is a very special preamplifier and that I would have to own the review sample " Rick Baker, SA Equipment
"Its transparency and the vitality of its sound ranks it among the very best at any price." James Darby, Stereo Mojo
1. CSLS uses directly heated triodes -101D tubes in the active gain stage . No other tubes are used.
2. There are NO capacitors or resistors in the audio signal path
3. Volume control is by transformers. (There is now a new remote control model with conventional volume control)
4. All coupling is by transformers. This means transformer quality needs to be top notch and indeed it is. Coincident have their transformers custom made by a specialist Japanese company using supermalloy cores.
5. Power supply is massive and is capable of powering a 100 WPC amplifier.
6. Balanced wiring throughout. Although 101D are single triodes , Coincident have utilized balanced wiring throughout the line stage. I have read a technical description on the internet about how this could be achieved but the official word from Coincident is - Without divulging proprietary design topology, we use a completely novel and innovative technique to create a truly balanced circuit without compromising the purity of a single DHT tube.
Will be shipped in original box. Local pick up is an option.
