Kudos Titan 808 floor standing loudspeaker
Kudos Titan 808 2.5 way Isobaric loaded floor standing loudspeaker.
What we Say:
The Kudos Titan 808 is a large 2.5 way floor standing loudspeaker with stunning looks and sound. Each speaker is made up of two separate cabinets that sit on top of each other on milled aluminium spacers. 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 as they can be converted from passive operation to active use by simply removing a set of link bars on the rear of the loudspeakers. Active operation does require additional investment in the supporting electronics but the improvements of active operation need to be heard to be truly appreciated.
For anyone out there looking for a DBL or dare I say it Isobarik replacement and is looking for a speaker that can do scale, dynamics and slam but with maybe a more subtle touch than either of those two speakers should put the 808 on their shortlist. In fact I would say it should be at the very top of that shortlist.

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.
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.
