Crafted along very similar lines to our Super 10A, the C10 is a masterfully compact standmount loudspeaker. Like every model in the Cardea series, it is thoughtfully designed to deliver superior communication skills, from top to bottom. Small in size it may be, but the C10 is one deeply groovy loudspeaker.

"The C10’s top end is sublime… details were impeccably rendered," says Hi-Fi World. "Bass lines were clear and well defined, with excellent levels of detail and rhythmical alacrity."



Kudos’ bespoke drivers are custom designed in collaboration with leading European experts, SEAS. All four Cardea series models feature our Crescendo K2 fabric dome tweeter, a development of SEAS’ superb (and justifiably costly) Crescendo unit re-engineered exclusively for Kudos. The C10’s use a custom 180mm mid-bass unit with a die-cast chassis with large open areas, a coated paper cone and a 26mm voice coil designed for low-distortion, high linearity and low crossover modulation.
The drivers are precisely matched and seamlessly aligned to work together, as one, delivering an effortless ‘just right’ sound. You’ll know it when you hear 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 C10’s superb quality components, including Mundorf inductors and resistors, and ClarityCap capacitors, are tailored specifically for Kudos to stringent tolerances.



The Cardea series’ modernist aesthetic looks elegantly simple on the outside, yet the inside is reassuringly hard-working. In a true marriage of form and function, design and materials combine to effectively manage unwanted vibrations while leaving the natural dynamics of your music blissfully undisturbed.

"base lines were clear and well defined, with excellent levels of detail and rhythmical alacrity"


"This is Kudos’ smallest, simplest and most affordable speaker but it still makes good on everything that the company feels matters and the result is a joy that is unquestionably a Best Buy."

AV Forums

"Kudos’ smallest speaker delivers a commendable chunk of what has made the Titan range so well received and does so while demanding very little of what is connected to, where it is placed or what you listen to on it."


"if you are looking for an articulate and clearly presented pair of quality, compact standmounted speakers the Kudos Cardea C10 are an essential listen"

Hi-Fi & Music Source

"The C10 is a relatively straightforward design executed with the highest quality materials possible so it manages to combine clarity, detail and tonal realism with a sense of fun that then goes on to have an impressively forgiving edge. It’s survived as long as it has because the fundamentals are so obviously correct. Without losing any of this balance, the latest upgrades make it even better still."

Hi-Fi Choice

"Everything about the C10 reflects extraordinary care and attention and the implementation of extremely high quality components."
