It will be interesting to see if Kudos continues with an Exakt option for the new T-707.

The press release on their website confirms it is compatible with Exakt - I'll be interested to know the price of the speakers following their launch at Bristol next month.

Good news on Exakt compatibility.

I'm guessing around the 12-14k gbp mark. Leaving room for a T-606 eventually at the 9k mark.

RE: T-707
Heard these speakers recently running with an active Naim system (using SNAXO)

They're £13,600 and sounding excellent. As per diddlydiddly's post, Kudos said that Exakt is on the way but they haven't written the filters as yet. The speakers have 2x mid-bass drivers in isobaric format with only 2 amp channels needed per speaker (which also means no chance of any time correction between the 2 isobaric drivers, should that be something that's worthwhile).

More notes on the system and listening here:

T-606 due in the Summer.

If you say it quickly enough the price tag isn't that bad either. Only twice as expensive as Akudoriks.

Thanks Dave. I'm thinking about asking my local N dealer to lend me 3x demo 250DRs...

But you don't NEED to buy any subs and you can go Exakt with "only" 4 channels of amplification. Think holistically my friend Smile

I'll grant you the Exaktbox, and that does help of course, but honestly.. everybody needs one or more subs.

In my more specific case I don't have to buy -anything-, so how's that for being holistic? I only need to add music to my stereo to make me happy. You need to tinker and bodge and paint things blue and .. the list is endless.

808 = 8 inch drivers and cabs to match
707 = 7 inch drivers and cab to match
606 will have 6.5 inch drivers and follow the same formula - so think isobaric mid-bass, bottom ported with the machined metal "fan" shaped port, substantially thick cabinet, easily convertible for active use via the connections on the back. Exakt filters available. Probably the same tweeter.

I apologise for my compulsive disorder. I do go to regular AA sessions - Audiophile Anonymous.
