Distribution Systems


Coda Audio manufactures many items for our own production department as well as for our clients. For manufacturing enquiries or compatability standards please contact us.


Coda multicore systems have been developed and refined over many years and offer a robust and flexible solution for most high density, balanced audio interconnection requirements.


24 Way Transformer Isolated Multicore Splitter

24 Way Multicore Systems

These systems are highly regarded in studios and venues throughout Australia and we are proud to have supplied complete mobile multicore systems to the Sydney Opera House for each of their venues.

  • The systems are designed in 24 and 48 way multiples.
  • Fully balanced and individually shielded throughout the system.
  • Rack mounted, transformer isolated splitters and interfaces to our 8 way system are available.
  • Male and female headers with tangle free silicone sleeving.
  • Logical and consistent numbering and colour coding throughout the system.
  • Custom versions and materials on request.

Our goals are complete long-term reliability, flexibility and intuitive ease of use in often difficult field conditions. Since we began manufacturing these in the mid '90s we have supplied hundreds of components for these systems; yet not one has failed through manufacturing defect or any cause other than the worst neglect. Each engineering problem has been carefully evaluated and resolved, and passive components have been chosen with audio quality as the first consideration.

24 Way Multicore Headers, Extensions & Accessories

A complete range of headers, extensions and accessories are available for this system.


Coda Audio 24 way multicore header
  • Extension cables to any length.
  • All cables have 24g copper conductors, wound copper shield and stainless steel drain wire.
  • LKSS24C 24 way cable without additional outer shield when flexibility and lower weight are priorities.
  • LKSSS24C 24 way cable with additional outer shield for greater cable protection and lower EMF interference.
  • Male and female headers, 1.5 metres, each group of four channels colour coded.
  • Cores 1 to 24 use black cable, 25 to 48 use blue cable.
  • Numbered patch cables, 4.5mm OD in black, red or blue.

8 Way Multicore Systems

The 8 way systems are exceptionally versatile. Used as complete systems on small productions, inputs where multiple small stage boxes are required, multiway rack inputs, desk outputs and monitor rigs. Access to either the inputs or outputs of our 24 way system is available through the 24 to 8 2RU rack mounted unit.

  • Joiners may be used to extend runs.
  • Fully balanced and individually shielded throughout the system.
  • Custom versions and materials on request.

8 Way Headers, Extensions & Accessories

  • Extensions to any length.
  • All cables have 24g copper conductors, wound copper shield and stainless steel drain wire.
  • Both male and female headers, 600mm length.
  • Cable joiners for extending runs.
  • Burndy panels.
  • 1 RU rack mounted strip.
  • Burndy inputs to male XLRs on flying leads.
  • Burndy inputs to female XLRs on flying leads.

8 Way Stage Boxes

Now in their 3rd generation, the 8 way stage boxes are manufactured using the same principles as the 24 way system stage boxes, which have proven to be exceptionally strong and reliable in the toughest of conditions.

The stage boxes use both sexes of connectors on the XLRs and multipins, making them incredibly versatile.


Coda Audio 24 way multicore header
  • Parallel female and male connectors.
  • All connectors protected by extended flanges.
  • 1.6mm steel upper section and 3mm aluminium lower section.
  • Black powdercoat finish.
  • Engraved or screened numbering.
  • Dimensions : 83mm (H) x 127mm (W) x 400mm (L)
  • Weight 2.2 Kilos.

8 way Single Stage Boxes

Single 8 way stage boxes are manufactured using the similar steel/aluminium construction as our other stage boxes but are more economical at the cost of patching flexibility. Available with either fixed multicore cable or Metalock Bantam connectors.

The fixed multicore cable can be of any length and termination type. If terminated to tails, the fan-out is generally unsleeved (direct fanout of internal cores). Silicone rubber sleeving is recommended for production and harsh environments.
