I have one. It is quite excellent and versatile.

Have had mine for around a year or so. Initially used it as a "full function" preamp with my CDP going through the passive line input. Since that time I ended up going with an all-Coincident system consisting of the phono, line, Frankenstein monos and PRE speakers. So obviously you can probably guess that I LOVE the phono stage.
To me, these Coincident electronics exemplify what high end audio should be - short circuit paths, minimalist products with extremely high quality components, overbuilt power supplies. The phono stage is no exception - it is magnificent, like the rest of the line.
It's quiet, reliable, robustly-built and a joy to use. Only real drawback IMO is a certain lack of adjustability compared for example to the Manley Steelhead...i.e. no adjustable gain and only 4 different loading options. However, this is a minimalist product designed with one thing in mind - sound quality. This it achieves without a doubt...
