  "I was able to nail down the Codex’s character in three words: holographic, resolute, and articulate…Codex is a very well built, beautifully finished loudspeaker based on sound engineering principles and comprising quality components. I found it to be a very revealing speaker that was resolute in its rock-solid bass performance, and convincing in its articulate reproduction of highly focused, vibrantly colored, holographic aural images. In the Codex, Audio Physic has produced something special. I highly recommend that anyone willing to spend up to $15,000 on a pair of speakers give it a serious listen.” - Aron Garrecht

"The last speaker that had me this excited—at twice the price—was the Vivid Audio Giya 4. So yes, the Codex has it big time. This is a very special speaker!" - Srajan Ebaen

"The Codex rightly assumes its renowned place in the Audio Physic line-up. Given its price, its quality of workmanship, including the design and its sound potential, it is bound to attract a following of friends who want to join it in re-discovering their love of music. Because under the hard glass exterior beats a deeply musical heart." - Marco Kolks

 

Codex's first review from LP - Germany's Premier HI Fi  Magazine...

"Of the new generation of loudspeakers, Audio Physic is probably the the MOST IMPORTANT THAT GERMANY HAS TO OFFER"

"Compared to the Avanti, optimized for smaller rooms, the Codex offers even more heft to unleash its power. It's loads of fun to listen to music with heavy bass and dynamics, especially because the unit does not back down in the slightest against electronically produced signals, rather it "holds its own", bringing down the house. The mid-range is in turn virtually discreet, as it is perfectly balanced. You notice the additional low-midrange driver by the somewhat greater richness in voices and a dynamic presence that seamlessly dovetails with the enormous bass. The Codex is even capable of surpassing the awesome sense of spatial depth created by the Avanti. The bottom line: once again, a perfectly balanced loudspeaker from Audio Physic, absolutely on the acoustic and visual cutting edge.

Bottom line …
» A loudspeaker featuring modern and consistent design in all the details, performing exceptionally well and offering truly stunning bass reproduction even in large rooms. «

In the history of AUDIO PHYSIC, the AVANTI loudspeaker model is an internationally-renowned classic. And the latest relaunch has been able to thoroughly convince the discerning ears of audiophiles and reviewers. The CODEX goes a step further. Based on its larger volume and the consistently advanced AUDIO PHYSIC technologies in the chassis and crossover design, the CODEX draws on the company's full potential.

There is always a certain divergence between excellent music reproduction and interior design features. For a rich, deep bass and a solid foundation, loudspeakers require a certain cabinet volume. The CODEX successfully manages this tight-rope act, thanks to its intelligent cabinet architecture and variety of available finishes. Despite its volume, the four-way loudspeaker with its clear contours and slender baffle exudes an air of stylish elegance. Especially the high-gloss glass finishes, combined with bright color tones, almost lends the loudspeakers an appearance of weightlessness.

Special attention was paid to the inner structure of the cabinet, as only an extremely sturdy cabinet offers the prerequisite for a reproduction that is pure and true to detail. Numerous braces and extremely stiff elements, made of open-cell ceramic foam, lend the CODEX body superb stability, without noticeably reducing the interior volume. Thanks to the sandwich construction, featuring a permanently elastic intermediate layer, the cabinet is perfectly quiet. Thus, the acoustic impacts of the cabinet components themselves are effectively counteracted.

As with the AVANTI, the subwoofer on the CODEX is mounted in the interior of the cabinet, utilizing an optimally matched chamber. The 10'' long-throw chassis is extremely powerful and effortlessly transmits the lowest frequencies. From 100 Hertz on, it hands the baton over to a 7'' chassis in the front of the cabinet. Here's the benefit of this division of labor: The bass reproduction remains confident and controlled in any situation. What's more, the CODEX offers considerably more latitude in terms of placement than traditionally designed loudspeakers, even close to a wall, they play with crisp structure and full torque.

The clarity in the lower octaves provides a cornerstone for exceptionally neutral and precise reproduction of mid and high frequencies. This is where the cutting-edge Hyper Holographic Cone Chassis, now in their third generation, come into play. The intelligent dual-basket construction of the chassis reduces any sound impacts due to micro vibrations to a conceivable minimum, as the chassis do not have any direct contact to the baffle of the loudspeaker. That is why the sound reproduction is not affected by any renegade resonance, so-called partial vibrations. In addition, the chassis have their own compartment in the cabinet of the CODEX. This eliminates any interactions via the air volume in the loudspeaker. For maximum signal fidelity, the crossover network is distributed among several levels and equipped with first-rate components. The individual modules are placed next to each chassis.

The CODEX also shows meticulous detail in its connection terminal. Here, the loudspeaker cables are connected with high-end WBT nextgen™ pole pieces. The terminal is also mechanically decoupled from the loudspeaker cabinet. It is the sum of all these details that makes the CODEX a veritably mature loudspeaker – true to the AUDIO PHYSIC motto: No loss of fine detail.
