TITAN 505

The newest addition to our flagship Titan series, the Kudos Titan 505 is a standmount loudspeaker designed to deliver stunning, top-of-range performance to a wider range music lovers. Small on size, big on immersion. If it’s everyday elation you’re after, the 505 offers all of the key Titan design features in a compact enclosure.  

 

EXCEPTIONAL HAND-MADE DRIVERS

The Titan 505 features unique drivers custom designed in collaboration with leading experts, SEAS. The K3 tweeter has undergone significant development to precisely tailor its capabilities for the Titan design, including an improved magnet system with copper shorting rings, a completely new resonance chamber and a new face plate profile to deliver an effortless ‘just right’ sound.

 

LOW-ORDER CROSSOVERS AND MINIMAL DESIGN FOR PURER SOUND

The purer the signal, the truer the sound. The Titan design preserves a clean and clear audio signal by favouring a minimal design with our trademark, low-order crossover. Superb quality components (Mundorf, Clarity Caps) are tailored specifically for Kudos to stringent tolerances.

 

INTERIOR DESIGN

While the Titan 505’s cabinet is obviously more compact than that of the floorstanding Titans, its bodywork remains impressively involved, featuring complex constrained layer damping in the side panels, cleverly designed to allow a stunningly convincing, true-to-life sound.

 

ISOBARIC WITH FIXED BOUNDARY LOADING

In common with our three Titan floorstanders, the 505 sports an isobaric arrangement in which the second mid-bass driver is carefully positioned internally back-to-back with the first. The result is significantly improved midrange clarity and bass response, as well as a reduction of bass distortion.

 

ACTIVE CONFIGURATION (UPGRADEABLE)

The Titan range is configured to allow simple by-passing of the internal crossover for active operation with leading electronics including Linn Exakt, Devialet Expert and Exposure VXN. Active operation opens up a wider upgrade path and enables a variety of performance and personalisation enhancing capabilities.

UNDER THE SKIN OF TITAN

A Kudos loudspeaker is created not just for music, but by music. Every step of the design process involves hundreds of hours of research, development and testing using a particularly fine technical instrument: the human ear. Why? Because the thrill of a sublime musical performance requires much more than measured sound quality.
