I am planning on purchasing a balanced cable soon. I have been planning on purchasing the Coincident balanced IC. I have read several positive comments on it and it fits my budget. I have also read some praise on LAT and would like to get comments from others about these cables.
I also mention Madrigals CZ-Gel cable, because this cable will be connected to a ML 383 int. amp. The cable will either run to a Meridian 508.24 CD or Fanfare FT-1A Tuner; it depends if the new cable out performs my JPS Balanced IC currently connected to my 508.24.
While I rate the Coincident highly, I find the 508-24 to be a tad laid-back, the JPS to be a tad forwrad, and the Coincident to be a tad laid-back. Hence changing from JPS to Coincident may not take the Meridian in the right direction - but only you can judge that.
