Questions for Coincident Frankenstein MKII owners
Dear owners of Coincident Frankenstein MKII mono block amps,
I am on a quest for an outstanding SET amp to pair with my beloved Klipsch Cornwall II (upgraded Crossovers Type A) 101db sensitivity speakers. Right now I pair the Cornwalls with a Leben CS300XS (using JJ EL84s tubes throughout).
At this point in time and with my budget, I've narrowed down my choices to either the Coincident Frankenstein MKII mono blocks or a Line Magnetic 219IA amplifier. I listen to a wide variety of music and require an amp that can play all genres well.
Please share with me your thoughts on the following:
1. Can the Coincident Frankenstein's play rock music well? I do believe it will play jazz, classical and acoustic music very well. Its the noisier stuff that I occasionally like to headbang to that I'm unsure whether the Frankensteins can pull off with aplomb.
2. Is there anything that the Coincident Frankenstein amps DO not do exceptionally well?
I truly appreciate your replies. I have been reading, researching and hunting high and low for the ultimate SET amp to pair with my Klipsch Cornwalls. I want to stop mucking around with equipment and get on with listening to MUSIC.
