You have a great Coincident Technology system. Each piece is probably the best available at anywhere near their price.

Thank you Allchemie,
What amazes me is how one company can produce the array of state of the art equipment like Coincident at the price point.Not inexpensive but legitimate bargains in high-end.
It comes down to Israel's pursuit of perfection and undeniable abilty.The result of which are no less than breathtaking.
Only companies with people who are passionate about music and how it is presented can achieve what Coincident has.
"While I was not previously aware of much missing, the line stage added so much more life to my set up it sounded as if my 8 watt set amps now were 80 watts" In reading many threads on preamps over the years, I never really thought that there was much of a difference in preamps and always felt that the source was much more important in my system. My opinion was changed when I first heard the TRL Dude preamp. Much bigger presentation, etc., then the smaller 6DJ8/6922 tube preamps that I had auditioned. A local tech here in New Jersey then lent me his 26 tube direct heated triode, transformer coupled preamp and that changed my mind on what a preamp means in a system. I wonder how the Coincident preamp sounds.
The Coincident Statement Linestage is an outstanding preamp, there`s no other way to put it. Stunning sound, dynamics,transparency and pure-natural tone, just wonderful.I`ve read many rave posts regarding the TRL Dude but I`ve not heard it.They`re very different designs, I hope you`re able to hear both of them soon.
I`ve not heard the Dodd, I`m very familiar with the ARC Reference models(they`re just ok to me). The internal built quality of the TRL Dude is very high level.I absolutely love my CSL,but between the TRL and ARC, the Dude with CAST capacitor option I`d prefer over the ARC Refernce linestage.
