Derek Gilligan, the founder and designer of Kudos Audio, Isobaric loudspeaker design and manufacturing specialist, has added a Liquid Amber finish to the Titan range. This will replace the tineo finish as this veneer is becoming increasingly difficult to source responsibly. There is no price increase for the new finish.
Liquid Amber is harvested from the liquidambar styraciflua tree, which is native to the south eastern USA. It’s a relatively swift-growing hardwood with order to its harvesting to ensure sustainability. It does not appear in the CITES appendix. The veneer is finished with a soft sheen and hard-wearing lacquer to protect and enhance the wood’s natural beauty.
Manufactured from a high-density HDF board chosen for its consistency, the core cabinet comprises varying thickness panels to control panel resonances. The side panels are attached using a propriety technique to manage energy transmission from the core cabinet into the outer side panel. These panels have a balancing veneer for optimal performance and consistency.
Derek Gilligan commented, “Liquid Amber was an excellent discovery after a long search to find a visually arresting and high-quality veneer that can be responsibly / sustainably sourced”.
