The Best of the Best! Update
Coincident Technology Pure Reference Loudspeakers
This year has been a difficult year for me. Lot of family issues and not enough time reviewing the products I love. As we all know family is first. With that said, I am taking some time off from my writing duties with blessings from both Dave Clark and David Robinson. Once things settle down I hope to return soon. Bearing this in mind I only reviewed one product for this year. But it was a goodie. In Issue 55 I reviewed the Coincident Technology Pure Reference. My final comments are as follows: "I had come to the conclusion the CPRs were my hands down favorite for any speaker priced under $35,000, and beating many others above that price point. Overall, what I gained from this 16 week adventure was the final realization that the CPRs are really good speakers. Almost any loudspeaker, after taking a closer look at them, you can usually find a fault. Having the CPRs in my listening room for the last four months and logging well over 150 hours of personal time with them, try as I might, I could not fault them at all!" I still stand by these comments. The Coincident Technology Pure Reference loudspeakers clearly are the best speakers I have ever had the pleasure to listen to, they do everything right. My only regret is I didn't buy the review sample.
