Which Preamp Rowland Coherence or Levinson


I AM TRYING TO CHOOSE BETWEEN A JEFF ROWLAND COHERENCE AND A MARK LEVINSON MODEL 32. WHICH IS THE BETTER OF THESE GREAT PREAMPS?

rivercitylad: almost impossible to say without knowing associated equipment. i'm partial to the jrdg, tho the madrigal pre mates best to more of the same. BTW, love your user name; hope you might be from mason city, iowa, the "river city" of meredith willson ("the music man"). another BTW: when you post in ALLCAPS, IT'S CONSIDERED TO BE SCREAMING. that's why i whisper in my ever-polite posts, which always exhibit a saint-like sense of tolerance. -kelly
I have only one question. Have you listened for yourself?

Good luck!
Hey cornfed, maybe he's screaming because he is hard of hearing - hey rivercity (gotta be Memphis) these are both great pre's but system coherence is most important at all levels IMHO. Also FWIW I've heard lots of Levinson pre's but always with Lev amps. Good luck in your choice.
