The Cardea series is a true Kudos original. The Kudos brand was launched with a Cardea, and our customers haven’t stopped asking for them since. Of course the Cardeas of today have evolved considerably since those early models. But the principle behind them remains very much the same: to create a high-performance loudspeaker for the ‘real world’ music lover.A Cardea is crafted to bring the thrill of a live musical performance into your home, without taking over your home. Its sleek design and modest footprint will blend in. The music, however, will stand out.The two ‘Super A’ models in the Cardea series are configured to allow simple by-passing of the internal crossover for active operation with leading electronics including Linn Exakt, Devialet Expert and Naim SNAXO. While a typical audio system features one power amplifier channel per loudspeaker, in an active system there is one power amplifier per drive unit. Active operation enables a variety of performance-enhancing capabilities and opens up a wider upgrade path.
