Kudos Audio is one of the fastest growing high-performance loudspeaker brands in the UK. Deliberately daring to move beyond the traditional rulebook, Kudos takes an uncommon approach to loudspeaker design.
Daring we may be, but the Kudos approach is firmly rooted in three key principles: expertise, engineering and emotion. From the outset, we have focused on a clear goal: to explore how world-class expertise in audio design and engineering can realise not merely outstanding sound quality, but ground-breaking musical quality. The kind that inspires toe-tapping, soul-stirring, spine-tingling, heart-rending, emotion.
The Kudos team combines its own considerable know-how in audio design and live sound engineering with the skills of several leading European suppliers to create unique, bespoke components and solutions. Every single Kudos loudspeaker is then hand-built, in England.
A Kudos loudspeaker is therefore a genuine original. And your emotional experience? One of a kind.
A Kudos loudspeaker is created not just for music, but by music. Every step of the design process involves hundreds of hours of research, development and testing using a particularly fine technical instrument: the human ear. Why? Because the thrill of a sublime musical performance requires much more than measured sound quality.
The Titan series features drive units crafted exclusively for Kudos by world-leading specialists SEAS. All four Titans share the same superb K3 tweeter, a version of a legendary SEAS unit specially re-engineered to tailor its capabilities for the Titans. A two-way design, the 505’s twin mid/bass drivers are brand new and unique to this loudspeaker. All drivers are precisely matched and aligned to work together seamlessly, delivering an effortless ‘just right’ sound. When you hear it, you’ll know it.
The purer the signal, the truer the sound. A Kudos loudspeaker preserves a clean and clear audio signal by favouring a minimal design with our trademark, low-order crossover. The Titan series’ superior quality components are tailored specifically for Kudos to stringent tolerances. They include Mundorf’s MResist Supreme resistors and air-core inductors, and ClarityCap’s unique CopperConnect technology capacitors.
The best designs are a marriage of form and function. The Titans’ modernist design blends effortlessly into the contemporary home. Concealed within, however, is highly a complex system of differential panel resonance control. While keeping a rigorously tight grip on any and all unwanted vibrations, this smart system gives full and free rein to the natural dynamics of your music.
Bass is key to how we hear music, so our Titan series goes above and beyond in ensuring superior sound at the all-important lower end. The Titan 505’s isobaric and bass reflex loading is cleverly engineered to deliver a more agile, nuanced, textured and detailed bass reproduction.
The Titan series is configured to allow simple by-passing of the internal crossover for active operation with leading electronics including Linn Exakt, Devialet Expert and Naim SNAXO. Active operation opens up a wider upgrade path and enables a variety of performance and personalisation enhancing capabilities.
