Statement RC (Remote Control) Line Stage
The demand and acceptance of our Statement Line Stage has been overwhelming. Despite increasing production capacity over 500% it took more than 2 years to finally keep up with sales requirements. We are now capable of shipping units within a couple of days subsequent to orders. However, we lost a percentage of sales due to the fact that our Statement did not offer remote control capability. Unfortunately it was impractical to offer a remote for our Statement due to the fact that the motor required to move the transformer coupled volume pots needed to be excessively large. This created a sonic problem since the motor would result in induced noise thereby compromising the sonic performance of a unit universally recognized as the quietest, purest, and most transparent line stage extant. For those audiophiles whose highest priority is performance this did not pose an issue. However, for a significant number of potential purchasers remote control is a necessity.
Coincident is now proud and excited to introduce the Statement RC ( Remote Control) Line Stage. This unit is identical to the Statement in every way with the exception of the following:
- Single variable stereo volume control replacing the TVC dual controls;
- Front panel push button controls for mute, input selector, input and output balanced or unbalanced operation;
- remote control for mute, volume, input selector and input and output balanced or unbalanced operation.
Now audiophiles can own the most transparent, accurate line stage extant with the convenience offered by full remote control capability. While the Statement RC Line Stage exceeds the performance and build quality of virtually any competing unit at any price, let alone at any costing less than $6000, there is a subtle sonic compromise when compared to the Statement. The transformer coupled volume pots of the Statement which are the finest of its kind in the world, are slightly more transparent than the variable stereo potentiometer of the RC model. The Statement RC Line Stage is the perfect synthesis of convenience mated with state of the art performance and quality.
