THE LEGEND IS ALIVE!

In 1981 the first TITAN made history. With its presence and its exceptional sound it has inspired trade press and customers equally throughout time. Now, 35 years on, the 9th generation sees the light of day. Again it makes its mark: 145 cm tall, more than 80 kg of pure handcrafted excellence. The high / midrange area is a combination of quadral ALTIMA® and quSENSE in a D’appolito-arrangement. In the low range area, you’ll discover a powerful pressure chamber with two strong drivers.

The result is impressive: extreme dynamics paired with an enormous sound stage and incomparable sovereignty. The room becomes a concert hall, massively fuelled, and as always, with an unrivalled ability to pamper the most delicate of moments too. The quSENSE- technology works with exceptional low distortion into highest level areas. The powerful low bass provides the necessary foundation for a typical neutral AURUM sound.

TITAN 9 excites audiophile connoisseurs as well as owners of high-quality home cinema installations.

TITAN 9

Summary, TITAN: a success story
This loudspeaker is a legend. 1981 was the year when – for what was then 8,600 DM – this huge acoustic transducer with a truly amazing sound appeared on the scene, making a noise that only really big loudspeakers can. The idea conceived by Helmut Schaper with transmission-line sound channelling and ribbon tweeter were the key elements in the first four versions, until subsequently Berndt Stark, Dirk Fritsche, Thomas Mengert and now Sascha Reckert took over the development of Titan, Vulkan, Montan & Co. and each made their own, very individual mark on the product. The Titan trademark was always an exceptional low bass with a lively dynamic It’s not changed over the generations and decades. Admittedly there is no stopping technical progress and so the sound of each more sophisticated successor is more mature, more harmonious and altogether more convincing. Simulation technology, CAD and an improved chassis make that possible.

TITAN 9 Masterpiece

AREA DVD: "Best performances in every discipline crowns Titan 9 to the best Titan of all times"

Online magazine AREA DVD has elected AURUM TITAN 9 as "masterpiece" in the category "floorstander luxury class". The result of the XXL test of September 19, 2016: "Titan 9, which has been presented at the fair Highend 2016, is a real masterpiece. This impression manifests itself right after unpacking. Finest manufacturing quality, outstanding varnishes, a first class connecting terminal with sound potentiometers that fulfil the highest standard, and a top quality socle – this already shows the special status of Titan. The only compromise lies in the visible screw connection of the two middle and tweeter chassis that are integrated in the D’Appolito-arrangement. Acoustically Titan 9 also satisfies the highest requirements confidently. Not only is the level stability exorbitantly high, even in the listening room above 40 square meters, no: also the all round acoustic harmony lies on an enormous level. Better attuned as its predecessor the current Titan 9 is also far from appearing aggressively or even shrill. Fine tuned midst, enormous transparency and brilliance in the treble range: Especially the high treble range shows the strength of Titan 9 impressively. Accordingly, it was worthy to bring the production of the quSENSE ribbon directly back to the company in Hannover. Like this the tweeter appears perfectly attuned to Titan 9. In the bass range, on the other end of the frequency spectrum, the two powerful 265 mm woofers set accents effectively. Due to the over the years perfected pressure chamber bass reflex principle a clear structured firm bass with extraordinary depths is provided. Like this Titan 9 presents itself as an in every detail totally successful new construction, that surpasses audibly the acoustic performance of its predecessor in all respects.

35 years on top

... this is how online magazine LowBeats entitles the test of current AURUM TITAN 9. Chief editor Holger Biermann sees the newest AURUM flagship in his conclusion: “again at the top“, “the total package quadral AURUM Titan R9 is just right. 15,000 euro is a lot of money, but a lot is offered. In the ninth variation of the Titan theme, excellent manufacturing and a comparably discreet sound with an extremely low bass capability are combined. Regarding the tonal character it is similar to the equally priced KEF Reference 5, but has more level stability. Of course there are some loudspeakers in this price category that sound even more open and starting. Well, there has to be something for every taste. With Titan R9 you can listen fabulously relaxed, but also re-enact live concerts in original volume. So, quadral AURUM Titan R9 again sets standards in its class – the flagship character maintains. The slightly high display is a matter of taste, but you can easily correct it by bending it gently forward and back down again. “
