"Libération eliminates the box and with it, box colorations, port issues, nonlinear pressurization of the drivers and attempts at choking half the speaker’s output with internal damping materials. Unlike many other open baffles, Libération also eliminates the messy derriere by covering both front and rear in attractive phosphor-bronze mesh covers. The driver array combines two bespoke 8-inch Enviée widebanders with a Raal ribbon super tweeter and a massive 18″ woofer to add scale and spatiality with real authority".

Code's SYSTEM-2 was recently launched at the National Audio Show 2016 where it was awarded runner up in the 'best sound in show' award and won the 'best innovation' award.

HiFi Critic 'Audio Excellence' and 6 Moons award winner - "A flawless speaker-as-musical-instrument widebander in a perfectionist enclosure" [Srajan Ebaen]
"The all solid tone-wood enclosure features an 8" full range driver with a ribbon tweeter for top end duties. The speaker's enclosure loading is a hybrid transmission line/rear horn with a side-exiting terminus and the ovoid solid Alpine Spruce/Maple enclosure with the rippling baffle is completely decoupled from the driver and stand to create very high speed of resonance shedding or minimum energy storage."
