Thanks for visiting the CODE blog! This is a super quick introduction to our latest creation; Big Evolving Sound System, or BESS for short.
Who we are
If this is the first time you’ve come across CODE, we’re a small high-end Hifi company, based in Woking, England. You can see one of our products, the SA1 system below:

It’s part of our wider blog ‘What can Hifi learn from PA?’ series:

Hopefully we can convince a few people to leave their blue-tooth speaker in the kitchen, and buy a decent Hifi for the living room. It doesn’t need to be the size of BESS (!) and it needn’t cost an arm and a leg, as one of our other blogs shows:
