The CODA Technologies Continuum No.8 Power Amplifier V1 delivers world class performance with magnificent macro-dynamics, exceptional bass control, and a virtually non-existent noise floor.
Coda Technologies operates like car manufacturers in that it has several different platforms or chassis that are regularly updated. Sometimes the changes are subtle, and sometimes dramatic. Due to a subtle component change, the Continuum No.8 V1 has a significant increase in signal-to-noise ratio over its predecessor and is the first Coda amp to feature a pair of power meters. The Continuum No.8 V1 uses a top quality 3000VA toroidal transformer with independent rectifiers and about 80,000 uF of total capacitance with very low ESR and inductance. The current stage is capable of producing in excess of 100 peak amperes with linearity and speed unmatched by other designs producing a fraction of this current.
