Any direct comparisons between Decware SE34I.5 and SE84UFO2?
I also ordered a switch box from Steve with two outputs and an A/B switch and I go from one to the other. I thought at first about selling the UFO2, but it is "only" $1300, almost not worth to sell it. But now (my room is small) kind of I even lik... 
Any direct comparisons between Decware SE34I.5 and SE84UFO2?
I was ready to buy in pairs, so recently I got a TORII V and an UFO2. I’d say the difference in the case of these 2 is the power, 20 W vs 2 (I think). But the sounds are very close, and excellent in both cases. The UFO2 will work perfectly in a sm... 
Decware Line Conditioner - Worth the wait?
I ordered mine last December. I’m pretty close, maybe a couple of weeks more. I ordered it after spending a week with one I borrowed from a friend. It really stops noise and harmonics from the grid. Maybe it is the toroidal transformer, maybe the ... 
Coincident Statement Phono Pre amp opinions
Excellent phono, dead quiet, accurate and delicate. It reminds me the Lamm, but with much better highs (less sibilance). The extra input is very useful, but if you use low power amps (e.g. SET) you may find that you need more gain. 
Any expereince with Coincident Frankenstein II Amp
I have owned the Franks Mk II for a couple of years now, and I also matched them for a while with the Hovland (a great preamp) until I finally got few months ago the CSL preamp, which is first class. For me the Franks are the best SET amps I know....

Has anyone listened to the coincident linestage?
I understand very well, Charles. I have the intuition that the massive power supply plays a major role here. To make a PS like that is expensive, and I guess that is why we don´t see it very often. A curious thing about this unit is the tube confi... 
Has anyone listened to the coincident linestage?
It is just an outstanding, quiet, natural sounding piece of equipment. I got mine about a month ago. I am using it with the Frankenstein. The amps sound now like a good 30W SET monos, but the extra gain does not deteriorate the sound. Still early ... 
What's your profession? Age?
I am a university teacher. I am 54 years old. My system is all Coincident Technology: speakers, amps, preamp. Near 25K, I guess.
