If you’re considering the X2 as your first entry into the wonderful world of high-end loudspeakers: welcome.
At just shy of 80cm tall, the X2 is the ‘baby’ of the Kudos range. But rest assured there’s nothing small about the performance of this dynamic and confident loudspeaker.
We’ve put everything of the Kudos sound that we can into the X2 while making sure that it won’t take up too much space in either your listening room or your budget. True, it’s not the cheapest compact high-end loudspeaker on the market. But it is hand-built in the UK using some of Europe’s finest components and technology, many of which are specifically customised exclusively for Kudos.
Think of it as your first investment in the rest of your musical life.
Kudos’ unique drivers are custom designed in collaboration with leading Norwegian experts, SEAS. In the X2, they’re specifically crafted for this loudspeaker’s more compact size. The drivers are carefully matched and precisely aligned to work seamlessly as one, making the X2 an impressively musical compact loudspeaker.
The X series’ compact, modern design blends effortlessly into the contemporary home. Beneath the sleek exterior is a smart marriage of form and function: everything in the X2’s bodywork is specifically selected for its acoustic properties and carefully fine-tuned to control unwanted vibrations without disturbing the natural dynamics of your music.
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 X series’ superb quality components, including Mundorf inductors and resistors, and ClarityCap capacitors, are tailored specifically for Kudos to stringent tolerances.
Since bass plays such a powerful role in how we hear music, our X series pays particular attention to delivering superior sound at the all-important lower end. The X2’s fixed boundary bass reflex loading is key to a more agile, nuanced, textured and detailed bass reproduction.
