DNC260 / DNC260N Digital System Controller - Front DNC260 / DNC260N Digital System Controller - Back

The DNC260 provides generous amounts of signal processing capability and is complemented by a highly flexible parameter arrangement ideally suited to touring and installation applications. The DNC260 may be controlled just as comprehensively from its front panel, or by using the C-Net software application. C-Net software can operate a single DNC260, or can optionally control a multi-km network of products using the optional C-NET network (DNC260N).


  • Two balanced inputs and six balanced outputs
  • High quality 96 kHz audio processing
  • Easy to use
  • Factory presets for all Coda Audio Systems
  • Customer presets
  • PC control
  • C-NET networking option

Sonic Purity

The DNC260 uses 96kHz sampling rate, Burr-Brown analogue-to-digital converter, Wolfson multi-bit digital-to-analogue converter, and a powerful 3rd generation Sharc Digital signal Processor. All this adds up to deliver the ultimate in sonic transparency and a stunning open natural sound quality.

Factory Presets

The DNC260 has complementary preset library for all Coda Audio loudspeaker systems. Presets are stored permanently.

User Presets

The user cannot access or overwrite the factory presets but can effectively overlay the factory settings using master EQs to match different acoustic environments or apply delay for time alignment or change gains to create and save their own variants.
