I have Titus ES in my bedroom system. They are a charming, seductive
speaker with some faults and a lot to like. On the fault side, there is a subtle
colouration in the mids that makes strings--Tchaivosky Sextet, Boccherini
Trios--sound absolutely gorgeous. I can live with this, I haven't heard it do
anything awful to a recording yet. On the plus side, they are terrifically
dynamic and lively with an impressive and detailed soundstage. In this
respect they remind me of the Royd Minstrel--very light on their feet and
Earlier versions had tweeter problems apparently but I have noticed nothing
unwelcome. The bass is best with careful placement--nothing unusual here.
They are easy to wall-mount, which helps bass but does not help soundstage.
I have them pretty far out from the walls, where the bass is still well extended
(for a speaker this size) and the soundstage can open up.
They have lots of detail, as the big soundstage they put up would suggest,
and you can hear lip and throat on well-recorded vocals. They are not the last
word in refinement and as main speakers I would rather use them in a small
room or nearfield (my bedroom is tiny). But they are still delightful speakers
and would be great for HT because of their dynamics. I am using a
moderately hefty SS amp because that's what I have, and planning to move to
tubes when I find the right unit.
