Coherent Systems Sales and service

I have been using the services of Coherent Systems (Tony) for a couple of years now.
For the person who wants the best advice and, more importantly, the best sound they can achieve for their budget, I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

My HiFi system has been transformed with the addition of some Coherent cables, Quadral Galan speakers, Belles Aria integrated amp and then, more recently, a Mutec MC-3 USB digital re-clocker. The last item is simply not the kind of component that I knew existed, let alone realised I just had to have. It typifies why you need a dealer of this experience and knowledge.

If you want to get off the merry-go-round of buying untested mega bargains on Ebay and the like, and actually use your hard earned cash on building a high quality music replay system that really works, then Coherent Systems is a dealer you should try.

Coherent RTZ grounding products
I have a very simple system:
• Nova Fidelity X45
• Belles IA-01
• various Coherent Systems interconnects, speaker and mains cables
that I have bought from Coherent Systems over the years.
I was curious to find out what other improvements I could make to my system and Tony suggested trying out a RTZ grounding box with some grounding cables.
Tony loaned me a RTZ1 ground box plus a plethora of grounding cables (RCA, XLR, USB connectors) to try out.
After a few weeks of demoing the various combinations, I ended up buying a RTZ1 grounding box plus 4 CR3 grounding cables (2 to the Nova Fidelity and 2 to the Belles).
I have a 4K TV. It will display 720p, 1080p and 2160p (4K).
As you step up through the resolutions, more detail becomes apparent and there is a greater sense of realism.
The changes I have experienced (and quite noticeably with the grounding box and cables) in the audio system are along a similar path.
I don’t know if the lower noise floor is solely responsible, but the improvements are all along the lines of:
• more detail
• clearer sound-stage
• naturalness and ease
which all leads to greater involvement with the music.
As an aside, all the above means that I can also enjoy music through the system at low volume levels (if required) as everything is preserved.
Tony’s breadth and knowledge of audio and electronics is quite incredible. He goes beyond the standard approach of simply supplying equipment and digs deeply into the why/how of what makes things tick.
There is no pressure to buy. Simply try it out and make up your own mind whether it works for you or not.

“Coherent Systems were able to deliver a tailored solution based around in-house upgraded Mutec components to link a variety of different manufacturers components to a common reference clock – whilst at the same time providing a better USB audio source than I had been using before at a fraction of the cost!”

The VBS-1 did arrive just before Christmas. I immediately installed it and turned the music on. Initially the complete system didn’t impress me. But after a few days my conclusion is my Acoustic Energy never have sounded better: powerful, enough base, no aggression in the highs and a better placement on the ‘players’.
All-in-all I’m very happy with the BC VBS-1 and REF500M’s.

Coherent Systems Technical advice and sales

Hello Tony,

A bit late with feedback on the Nova Fidelity but truth is I haven't stopped listening to music. Everything is much more listenable, less edgy, more detailed, and the music just grabs my attention so much more. A great recommendation and great service as always. You've a very happy customer here in the north west. :-)

All in all, great service from beginning to end.

Coherent Systems Upgrade services

Mutec MC3+USB, Coherent modified for an external QP Power supply.
The Mutec MC3+ from stock was without doubt the most cost effective upgrade I have made to my digital system. Having Tony modify it for one of Coherent's QP-1 Power supplies just takes everything to the next level. The SQ now has more depth, more detail and a wider sound stage.The Mutec mc3 is on song now, tried taking it out of my system but couldn’t believe I was ever happy listening without it. Stunning. Without it in place the sound becomes restricted and anaemic. Highly recommended.

I trust you got your demo Mutec back without issue. The new replacement sounded enjoyable right out of the box, which is so rare for an item of hifi equipment. What a great piece of kit - relatively not too expensive and yet a definite and very big improvement as soon as it's plugged in.

When you recommended I try it I must admit I was a bit skeptical. The Dac manufacturer keeps writing how they've got their usb to be as good as any input, and I'd worked on improving my usb input quite a bit with endless magical boxes. But with the offer of a demo I thought I had nothing to lose and I'm so glad I did try it as it's such a large improvement and resulted in some very enjoyable evenings of listening. All the advice you have provided me has resulted in some very worthwhile improvements in my system. Thank you.

Coherent Systems upgrades and audio consultancy

I had discussed with Tony further areas for improvement, and he had proposed to upgrade selected components in my Audiolab M-Dac. However this proved non-viable, and since the Audiolab could no longer be returned in working order, Tony graciously offered to replace it gratis with an ex-demo Bel Canto model, which now has proved a big step forward with addition of improved power supply...many thanks Tony!
Further areas of improvement are further Black Ravioli pads for various components, giving better definition and detail. I was able to trial these without pressure to purchase, but once trialed, they don't go back!
I felt that the clarity from my Quadral Chromium 8 speakers was affected by the loose-lay engineered wood flooring in my listening room. Tony suggested the use of out-rigger feet designed for these speakers. Now installed, the sound-stage has definitely improved.
Its so helpful to get expert advice and thoughts without any pressure to buy. I am looking forward to further areas for gradual improvement.
