Kudos Titan 808 – Exaktly!

Posted by February 21st, 2015

Until now, the mighty Titan 88 has held its own as Kudos Audio’s flagship loudspeaker – and for good reason. Designed without compromise to be the clearest, most coherent and musically engaging loudspeaker the company had ever created, the Titan 88 was the embodiment of all of Kudos’ design ideals combined into one package.

Featuring world-class components, many of which were custom-designed in collaboration with some of Europe’s top specialists, the Titan 88 sought to deliver the ultimate musical performance and was rewarded with a fervent cult following among audiophiles in-the-know.

Now Kudos is ready to unveil the prototype of its successor: the new Titan 808. Only the two isobaric bass drivers remain identical to those in the original T88. The mid-bass driver, tweeter and crossover have all been advanced and refined, while the all-new and even more complex cabinet features a stunningly avant-garde design.

And there’s more…

Linn Exakt & Kudos

Titan 808_450Kudos Audio has been working with industry leaders Linn to bring the incredible performance of Linn Exakt into the Kudos range of loudspeakers.

Launched by Linn in 2013, Exakt is a ground-breaking new technology that has revolutionized the world of hi-fi. It delivers the most direct connection ever made between the listener and the artist, and turns the loudspeaker into an intelligent, connected, software upgradeable product.

Exakt enables a wide range of performance- and personalisation-enhancing capabilities in design, in manufacture and in-home. Sources of noise and distortion that exist in the traditional analogue hi-fi chain are eliminated so what is heard is a more faithful reproduction of the music as it was recorded.

The Linn Exaktbox can be software-configured to optimise performance for any loudspeaker and amplifier combination, delivering all the benefits of Exakt technology.

In a system using an Exaktbox, the original analogue crossover in the loudspeaker is bypassed and instead, the Akurate Exaktbox performs the crossover digitally, while applying Linn’s Exakt technology to eliminate distortion, correct for drive unit variation and optimise the loudspeakers’ performance for the room.

In September 2014, Linn launched Exakt support for the iconic Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus. Now the team at Kudos is delighted to be working closely with Linn to develop Exakt support for its three top-of-range speakers: the Super 10, Super 20 and the new flagship Titan 808.
