For sale are a stunning pair of Kudos Titan 808 in 9.5/10 condition. I rated them very conservatively. No dings, scratches, swirl marks. Moved in a different direction so these need a new home. The 808s are the flagship model of the Kudos line of loudspeakers, all of which are handmade in the UK. Not only do the 808s sound spectacular, they are also extremely easy to live with as they are very forgiving of placement. Unlike most speakers Titans can be placed close to a room's front wall - and out of the way of foot traffic - without creating a boomy bass sound. 

THIS IS THE ULTIMATE LOUDSPEAKER FOR A NAIM 500 OR STATEMENT SERIES OWNER!!!

The Titan 808s can be run passively OR actively with a number of kit (including Naim, Linn, Devialet, and Exposure) - you can learn more about that awesome feature here:

Kudos speakers are NOT discounted. This is your opportunity to have a very highly regarded, musical loudspeaker for a discount as I have an opportunity to upgrade with my dealer to Borresen loudspeakers that I have been considering for some time as I have sold my Naim kit.  I do not personally have the ability to accept any payment method other than check, wire, cash, money order, BTC, and or PayPal however we can discuss, for the serious buyer, trade-ins with my dealer and potentially even a 12 month payment plan with my dealer - this would be an extended courtesy to the most serious of parties only..

The Titan 808 come in Original Boxes with Owner's Manual, Factory Spikes, & Chord Jumpers.

Shipping will be freight insured and the flat cost of $480.00. Local pickup in Chicago is also available. 

See below for more information about these fabulous speakers from Kudos's website.
 

TITAN 808

The absolute pinnacle of the Kudos range, where every design ‘eureka’, every expert-crafted component and every meticulously honed detail come together in masterful harmony. Please, lose yourself in the pure joy of the musical moment.  
 

EXCEPTIONAL, CUSTOM-MADE DRIVERS

The Titan series features drive units crafted exclusively for Kudos by world-leading specialists SEAS. All four Titans share the same superb K3 tweeter, a version of a legendary SEAS unit specially re-engineered to tailor its capabilities for the Titans. The 808’s mid/bass driver and duo of bass drivers are completely unique to this loudspeaker. All of the drivers are precisely matched and aligned to work seamlessly, as one. The result? An effortless ‘just right’ sound. When you hear it, you’ll know it.

 

LOW-ORDER CROSSOVERS AND MINIMAL DESIGN FOR PURER SOUND

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 Titan 808’s superior quality components are tailored specifically for Kudos to stringent tolerances. They include Mundorf’s MResist Supreme resistors and air-core foil inductors, and ClarityCap’s unique CopperConnect technology capacitors.

 

INTERIOR DESIGN

The best designs are a marriage of form and function. In the Titan 808, the tweeter and mid/bass drivers, and the two bass drivers, are housed separately in independent cabinets, delivering remarkable musical clarity even at high volumes. The Titans’ modernist design blends effortlessly into the contemporary home. Concealed within is highly a complex system of differential panel resonance control: while keeping a rigorously tight grip on any and all unwanted vibrations, this smart system gives full and free rein to the natural dynamics of your music.

 

ISOBARIC WITH FIXED BOUNDARY LOADING

Bass is key to how we hear music, so our Titan series goes above and beyond in ensuring superior sound at the all-important lower end. The Titan 808’s isobaric and fixed boundary bass reflex loading is cleverly engineered to deliver a more agile, nuanced, textured and detailed bass reproduction.

 

ACTIVE CONFIGURATION (UPGRADEABLE)

The Titan series is configured to allow simple by-passing of the internal crossover for active operation with leading electronics including Linn Exakt, Devialet Expert and Naim SNAXO. Upgrading to active operation enables a variety of performance and personalisation enhancing capabilities.
