The Super 20 has been engineered to produce the ultimate musical performance
from our 2 way floor-standing loudspeaker range.
The Super 20 combines the Kudos Crescendo K2 tweeter from the Titan T88 with
a newly developed main driver, unique to this application,
incorporating a copper shorting ring to minimise eddy currents and
aluminium phase plug.
The two drive units are unique to Kudos and have been developed to integrate
seamlessly to produce an extremely high quality loudspeaker.
Development has not stopped there and the crossover has been thoroughly
re-engineered with new inductors and resistors from Mundorf,
as well as a Mundorf Supreme (Gold/Silver/Oil) capacitor. These parts
are produced to very tight tolerance and are also hand matched for this model to
improve quality even further.
The cabinet is manufactured from 18mm high density MDF chosen for its
acoustic properties and finished with either real wood veneers
, or a high quality satin white paint. The reflex port is situated on the
bottom of the cabinet to enable more flexibility in placement within
the listening room; this incorporates a damped flexi port design also
from our Titan T88. The plinth provides a fixed boundary gap for the port to
work optimally as well as providing additional stability.
The plinth itself is a tri-laminate design of high density MDF, a
damping compound and a steel base as seen on our flagship models. High quality
stainless steel spikes are also included for optimum grounding of the
loudspeaker to the floor.
*NEW*: Kudos & Linn Exakt
Kudos have been working with industry leaders Linn to bring the incredible
performance of Linn Exakt into Kudos top-of-the-range of loudspeakers, including
the Super 20.
Launched by Linn in 2013, Exakt is a ground-breaking new technology that
turns the loudspeaker into an intelligent, connected, software upgradeable
product and delivers the most direct connection ever made between listener and
Exakt enables a wide range of performance- and personalisation-enhancing
capabilities in design, in manufacture and in-home. Sources of noise and
distortion that exist in the traditional analogue hi-fi chain are eliminated so
what is heard is a more faithful reproduction of the music as it was
In a system using an Exaktbox, the original analogue crossover in the
loudspeaker is bypassed and instead, the Akurate Exaktbox performs the crossover
digitally, while applying Linn’s Exakt technology to eliminate distortion,
correct for drive unit variation and optimise the loudspeakers’ performance for
Kudos is delighted to be working closely with Linn to deliver Exakt support
for its three top-of-range speakers: the Super 10, Super 20 and
the new flagship Titan
