    Re: Interesting new amp

    Jeff Fritz of SoundStage Ultra published an extremely positive review of the Coda 15.0 Stereo Amplifier (big Class A bias) back in 2011 and has made a number of very positive comments about the company and their products over the years. Coda apparently is more well known in Europe than in the US. They have a strong engineering focus and don't seem to want to put a lot of effort into marketing.

    Re: Interesting new amp

    Like ATI they seem to do a lot of OEM work for other companies which would explain the similarities between the Sanders and the new Coda amp.

    Is it your contention that CODA build Magtech amps for Sanders & now have released a CODA version of the same thing...

    Re: Interesting new amp

    My contention is that Coda is an amplifier company who does OEM work and that Sanders is a speaker company that started selling amps with his brand on them. Two different enterprises and no one but you has said the amps were the same. Feel free to e-mail Terry or contact him on A'gon and ask him. As long as he's been reviewing I'm sure he's seen or heard the Magtech.

    Re: Interesting new amp

    I don't believe the CODA and Sanders Magtech amps are identical. The Sanders amp is vastly more powerful, eschews class A operation [don't get Roger started on the topic of class A] and includes a fully regulated power supply unit. I do believe CODA manufacture for Sanders.

    Nor do I & I never said they were identical - the specs clearly demonstrate that - however they are VERY similar in layout - especially Roger's unique,100% efficient, linear, regulated power supply.

    Coda's top line amps operate in Class A for 100/200 watts and carry a 10-year warranty, 5 years transferable.
