Statement Line Stage

"My Rig Evolves"

Enjoythemusic.com - January 2013


I was in need of a phono stage at this point as I sold my CAT preamp to help pay for the outstanding Coincident Statement Line Stage I had reviewed and purchased. After much searching I ordered the companion Coincident Statement Phono Preamplifier which then forced me to purchase the new Dynavector Karat 17D3 cartridge since the Coincident only works with moving coil cartridges. The phono stage is every bit as good as the Line Stage and the Dynavector cartridge was a definite step up from my well-worn Clearaudio Virtuoso Wood. I wasn't thrilled with the cartridge being gold — too much bling for my taste, but the music coming from my vinyl never sounded better. While I normally don't recommend buying by the label as I did with the phono stage, the Statement Phono Preamplifier sonically mates with the Statement Line Stage to create a world class solution at a very fair price.
