You will not regret the purchase.

My journey in high end audio began after my last child graduated from USC. Suddenly I had extra money to pursue this passion (sickness) as an audiophile. As I’m sure you all know it is a slippery slope to find that sound you have in your head. The reviewers can only review what they are sent, and are reluctant to give a bad review. The stores only offer information about what they sell, which may or may not be the best or best value. Also, since sound is somewhat subjective, what they like, may not be what you like. As someone who has always loved music and audio, I had in my head that one day, I was going to have a McIntosh system. What I didn’t know at the time is that McIntosh is like the Rolex of the Audio world. Great quality, solid, iconic, beautiful, and desirable. What I found out later, is that are several of the Patek’s and AP’s of the audio world. And so I began this journey with Mac separates and Sonus Faber speakers. The system was actually pretty good. The impetus to improve my system began when I found out that the Mac streamer/DAC I had would not play high resolution audio. The dealer I originally worked with never even talked to me about this. So I found another dealer that allowed you to try most products for 60 days. I bought a new streamer/DAC and this improved the experience significantly. A friend of mine then loaned me a server streamer and separate DAC and told me that it would be much better, which it was, a lot better. Three iterations later I had the Innuos zenith mark III server/Streamer and a very good two piece DAC with considerably better components all the way around. Enter the Innuos Phoenix reclocker. I had heard that it would make a significant difference so I found a dealer in Oregon (no sales tax) and called True Audiophile My conversation with Gary lasted over an hour.He questioned and he probed. I really got the feeling that he understood what I wanted and had the experience and knowledge to get me there. I bought the Phoenix which he assured me was a good decision. I got it and he was right. A few weeks later Gary contacted me and said he was sending me a DAC that would blow my socks off. As it was half the price of my two piece rig, I had my doubts. But true to his word, it was a revelation. Suffice it to say that I got a new amp, new tubes, new cables, new isolation devices, but I was reluctant to give up my very fantastic Harbeth speakers. With Gary’s gentle prodding I finally agreed to purchase the Coherent 15 floor standers with every upgrade save the beryllium tweeters. They are large, beautiful, and substantial. They make a live recording sound LIVE. They are incredibly efficient and horns sound like horns, a guitar sounds like it is being played in my room, and vocalists sound like they are projecting at me from their particular place on the stage. What makes these speakers really amazing is that the sound stage is wide, tall, and deep and It is very well defined. The biggest surprise to me has been that they continue to sound better all the time. Is this possible? Even after more than 250 hours? Please buy these speakers if you don’t already have them, and lmk if you are having the same experience. You will not regret the purchase.
