Release of S250
Based on the highly acclaimed System 100 design, The S150 uses a split architecture to reduce the influence of the high current present in the output stage of an amplifier on the high impedance circuitry of the voltage gain circuitry. The system 250 will produce 250 Watts (200 Watts Class A) utilizing a single voltage gain stage and two dedicated current stages. The system also uses the Thermal Trak technology from On Semiconductor which was previously unavailable and is currently incorporated in most of our amplifier designs.
Release of V5a
The V5a brings Class A to your video system. This amplifier shares the same form factor as the Stereo S5.5 amplifier but is designed with surround sound systems in mind. It has four 50 Watt channels each with about 25 Watts of Class A. Two channels can be bridged for 200 Watts (25 Watts Class A) for use as the 'odd' channel in video systems. The V5a paired with an S5.5 creates a 5.1 system in which all channels benefit from Class A operation. A second stereo amp will get the system ready for 7.1 Surround.
Release of 15.0 and 33.0
Introducing the latest evolution of Coda's large form-factor amplifier series, the Model 15.0 and Model 33.0.
These amplifiers have all-FET voltage gain circuit topology and utilize the newest generation of bipolar output devices from ON-Semi for the output stages. Increased power supply capacitance extends bass response to a greater degree than preceding models. The 15.0 and 33.0 utilize the highest grade Vampire RCA connectors, Neutrik XLR connectors and WBT Signature binding posts to minimize degradation of signal.
These amplifiers are in production at this time and will be available mid-summer 2009. Check our website regularly, preview photos will be available in the near future.
S5 Amplifier featured on the cover of the May '05 Stereophile Magazine.
Watch your mail or local newstand for the upcoming May 2005 issue of Stereophile. Our sincere thanks to Wes Phillips and John Atkinson of Stereophile for a great review of the S5 amplifier - the first version of the S series amplifiers to be reviewed in a print publication. Look for more upcoming reviews on the entire S product line.
