Description

Kudos Super 20A Speakers

The Kudos brand was launched with the Cardea series, and the Super 20A is the topmost development of the series. Think of the last time you met somebody who was so fascinating, so entertaining and so utterly engaging, and who had a voice so captivating, that you could happily listen to them forever. That’s the feeling you get on meeting a Cardea Super 20A. In short, it’s a brilliant communicator and it knows how to hold a room. It’s also incredibly insightful, probing into the depths of each recorded musical performance in order to faithfully expose everything that’s in there.

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 ExaktDevialet 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.

Kudos’ one-of-a-kind drivers are custom designed in collaboration with leading European experts, SEAS. All four Cardea series models feature their Crescendo K2 fabric dome tweeter, a development of SEAS’ superb (and justifiably costly) Crescendo unit re-engineered exclusively for Kudos. The mid/bass drivers are unique to each model.
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.
