Coincident Pure Reference Extreme

Since introduced I have not heard too much about this speaker here. I know some folks say it's SOTA...but how does it compare to other speakers in that price range such as Wilson?
Coincident is primarily sold factory direct with only 2 authorized dealers worldwide, therefore, it is pretty hard to demo the speakers. Many are hesitant on dropping serious $$ on speakers that you cannot audition. Wilson, on the other hand, has an extensive dealer network.
All the reviews are raves as it should be since it is so simple using state of the art parts and simple xover. So simple in fact that you can make a better verion for much, much less. Buy two Accuton $900 mids, two $360 Accuton tweets, buy two caps, two coils and get Danny Richies (GR Reearch) servo 12 inch woofs for the bottom (use open baffle or closed). Three of his 12s driven by the separate servo amp would kick butt and you could time align them with the mids and highs. Use no binding posts and put the simple xover for the mids/highs outside the box. Use even more dead box material (constrained layer high density MDF, 13 ply birch plywood or even bamboo plywood). You can use green glue between the layers. Would cost around $5500 and you could make it look anyway you wanted. Would be mucho superior to stock Coincident. The bass would be so deep and low it would shake the house. Please google Dannies servo woof system....he showed a speaker using 3 12s at the Rocky Mountain bass at the show according to several.

If you wanted to get even more crazy then use two mids and tweets per channel and you will now have at least 96db sensitivity and the coil for the woofs would be half the value so even more info would go into them. Go to and read that guys stacking and biamping them. Even a single version would be bi-amped. Doubling the drivers would give even more.
I am lucky as I live in NYC and one of the dealers is in Manhattan. I am curious to hear from people who have heard these speakers to see if there is a good reason to stop by and give them a listen. I probably will anyway....but would love to hear fro you all. Thanks!
RWD, i heard the Coincident Pure Reference Extreme at the NY audio show last April. I wish you went.
The Coincident Pure Reference Extreme speakers were played on the top of the line Coincident tube amps and tube preamp.
If i remember correctly the CD player used was the TEAC Esoteric K-01
The speakers don't look as fancy as the Wilson speakers, but he Coincident Pure Reference Extreme sounded amazing.
The bass blended in so nicely to the mids.
The speakers sounded very silky and the bass was tight and upbeat.
