Kudos Titan 505 2 way standmount isobaric loaded loudspeaker.

What we Say:

The Kudos Titan 505 is a large 2 way  stand mount loudspeaker with stunning looks and sound. It comes complete with it’s own custom stands which fix to the speaker with a set of machine screws. The sides have distinctive angled panels that give the cabinets a very architectural feel. These panels are not just veneered but have inset solid wood ends which gives them a very luxurious feel. In fact every aspect of the Titan range oozes high end build quality from the cabinets, phase plugs, spikes and even the quality of the packaging

The Titan range differs from most conventional loudspeakers. They can be converted from passive operation to active use by simply removing a set of link bars on the rear. Active operation does require additional investment in electronics but the improvements of active operation are substantial.

For anyone out there looking for a stand mount speaker that can do scale, dynamics and slam but is also great on material that requires a delicate touch should put them on their shortlist. In fact I would say it should be at the very top of that shortlist. They are the best stand mount speaker we have heard.

What they say:

Titan 505

Small on size, big on immersion. If it’s everyday elation you’re after, the 505 offers all of the key Titan design
features in a compact, standmount loudspeaker.

EXCEPTIONAL, CUSTOM-MADE DRIVERS

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 606’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.

LOW-ORDER CROSSOVERS AND MINIMAL DESIGN FOR PURER SOUND

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.

INTERIOR DESIGN

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.

ISOBARIC WITH FIXED BOUNDARY LOADING

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 606’s isobaric and fixed boundary bass reflex loading is cleverly engineered to deliver a more agile, nuanced, textured and detailed bass reproduction.

ACTIVE CONFIGURATION (UPGRADEABLE)

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, Naim SNAXO and Exposure VXN. Active operation opens up a wider upgrade path and enables a variety of performance and personalisation enhancing capabilities.

WHAT OTHERS SAY

“Don’t be fooled by the compact exterior, this is one of the best standmounts that Adam Smith has ever heard”

Hi-Fi Choice | June 2019

Hi-Fi + | September 2019

“The Titan 505 is not just another hefty standmount, its combined technologies give it an edge even at this price and I would encourage anyone who enjoys music to have a listen.”
