Divine Delta - AREA DVD (Germany)

September 10 - 2018

"Well done, XTZ The Divine Delta is visually an impressive appearance, the beautiful optics combined with exemplary processing. If you then connect the large bookshelf speaker, you can immerse yourself deeply in any musical world, and no matter what kind of music it is. Either club music, classical music, jazz or pop, does not matter at all: The delta always plays sovereign, always cultivated, extremely pleasant, at the same time dynamic and with extreme SPL capabilities - for the money invested almost unrivaled at present."

Spirit SUB 12 - Hemmabio (Sweden)

August 03 - 2018

"A thoughtful product like this one is fun to review because I can give a wholehearted recommendation, but it's hard for me not to make a brainwashed impression when I'm not expressing any direct criticism. Personally, I like black or slightly snowy dark wood. But anyone who wants to use the subwofer in a home cinema will appreciate the matt black, while the matt white is more suitable for modern living spaces. RCA outputs are no important detail, but it is also missing if we are to dig into any shortcomings. In other words, this subwoofer is good, really really good."

EDGE A2-300 - Audiophile Magazine (Thailand)

July 23 - 2018

"A2-300 has passed my test of power and dynamic when I listen at high volume level with enormous bass music. I continue using high sound level but the chassis is only warm for my touch. This is normal to the ICEpower amp. I found that the frequency response is very stable and precise. It has good sound since the first minute after turn on, no need to wait for ten more minutes like other amps. The reserved power push music with like liked and musicality with truthful presentation. With various kinds of music, vocals, pops, any reordings, it generates sound with openness and no hiding..."This is the dream amplifier which is easy to use and you can live long with it. Anyone who is looking this style of amplifier, this is the golden opportunity for you."

EDGE A2-300 - (Germany)

June 18 - 2018

"Actually, I do not know any power amp - sorry for the somewhat flat-looking, but true statement - that delivers so much for so little money. It is not just the sheer sine wave power of the XTZ Edge A2-300, but the sound as well. On the plus side there is a strong, fast bass range, an astonishingly "analogous", almost tube-like fine midrange resolution, impressive coarse and fine dynamics as well as a stage construction, which is characterized by a clean, accurate presentation and a lively, non-dissecting sound. If you add price, workmanship and practicality (it's not a problem to put it in your laptop bag), you can only congratulate the manufacturer for the XTZ Edge A2-300. "

"Yes, with this concept and the high quality of the material, competitors will have a hard time placing something equivalent on the market at a price of € 3.990, which is certainly due to the advantage of direct sales, less costs and margins due to non-existent retailers. For us the XTZ Divine Delta is certainly the reference in this price range, this time we have found nothing to complain about and deserve her our highest award. "

Lightning fast, distinct, and very powerful means that XTZ SUB 1x12 is a top-of-the-line subwoofer for both music and movies. It is also pretty easy to place. And it costs half as much as its competitors!"

Cinema Series - HEIMKINO (Germany)

February 02 - 2018

"In our test cinema, the XTZ set was able to implement 100 percent of its laboratory-determined advantages and played at a particularly high level. The perfect tonality of the entire set and its balanced dispersion characteristics, which forms the basis for precise spatiality, really appealed to us. Even acoustically very complex scenes from films like "Lone Survivor" or "Edge of Tomorrow" were solved wonderfully by the Cinema-M8-Set and left dialogues crystal clear above everything else without dissecting the whole picture or even destroying it."

December 20 - 2017

"When writing these lines in the conclusion, I notice that in the above description of sound I delivered the greatest compliment for the XTZ basically en passant: All speakers, which came to my mind as a benchmark, are, concerning the price level, at least one level above the Alpha. This clearly reveals the level at which the XTZ Divine Alpha plays: resolution / transparency, dynamics, airiness, long-term fitness and neutrality are on an absolute high-end level, also in the range far above 10.000€ there is not (much) more to get."

"It is difficult to find a subwoofer to fully fill a 200 sqft area with high dynamic low bass at the same price point of SUB 1×12. I am sure that higher price model would have at ease of fulfilling that, but that would be another story to tell. If you are in the market for a natural cinema sounding subwoofer, but also be able to tune for your personal taste/preference in bass, you should definitely give XTZ Cinema SUB 1×12 a try."

November 18 - 2017

"99/100 Points" "Based on a well-tuned, deep and clearly structured bass, the sound of the 99.36 FLR is accentuated by a variety of timbres, a high degree of transparency and detail, as well as a concise and vivid representation of vocals. The testers especially liked the way the Fountek ribbon tweeter played, which doesn't contain any kind of tonal hardship or hissing." "With their sonic abilities, the XTZ 99.36 FLR catapults itself into the high-end league of passive speakers and is now the Technic3D reference in the price group around 1500€ / pair."

All these possibilities make the Tune 4 more than just a great speaker, whether in the sound itself, or in the quality of the cabinet and its overall features. The speaker provides an amazing dynamic range and amount of details, also the bass qualities are astonishing. If you need more, you can also easily connect a subwoofer to the subwoofer-output."

Tune 4 - Stereopluss (Norway)

"There are not many options for really good sound on the desk. We have already tested the Quadral Rondo Active and they are certainly a good alternative but still I find that the Tune 4 gives a better insight into the music with more timbre and details in the sound. Furthermore the Dirac DSP gives you a unique opportunity to adjust the sound as you like. Whether you're working, surfing or just sitting in front of the screen, the Tune 4 always make an excellent impression. The Speakers can also be used to support the TV sound, for example, via the optical input and it definitely sounds better than any soundbar! "

Weaknesses are looked for in vain." "The competitors are also strong, but the XTZ impresses with its high acoustic harmony and the absolutely identical handling of music and movie source material. Very high SPL capabilities and an outstanding precision, even with parallel occuring bass effects, are part of the  impressive performance."

"The precise, structured and tremendously rich and powerful bass is simply fascinating in this price class. Of course: the competitors are also doing well in reproducing bass, but I think the Swedish developers have achieved something special when constructing the 99.36. In addition, the connection to the higher frequency ranges takes place smoothly, the mid range has punch, plasticity and naturalness without any blurring effect. The XTZ offers a perfect timing and a very confident, light-footed character with practically every type of music."

"Some products instil a positive feeling pretty much the moment you unbox them. They don’t have to be enormously expensive to do so. They simply have to exude the feeling that they have been carefully and thoughtfully designed to achieve the absolute maximum their constituent components are capable of....Speakers are subjective items – two examples of ‘correct’ design practise can sound rather different in practise – but the Spirit 11 is likely to please a great many people. Based on this impressive roster of abilities, it has to be considered a Best Buy."

Produkt: M6
This speaker series is just OUTSTANDING!, with great build quality and the finish is just exquisite. After a few hours of loosening up"bedding in" they really, really come to life. They far exceed XTZ's core goal for this series, extremely high SPL with very minimum distortion. After some slight tuning of my ears, i am in love. I have been lucky to be in contact with Jag at, who is an amazing guy, who will go far out to help you with any queries you may have incl before and after sales. I have also been honoured to have been in contact with Olle Eliasson, the man (CEO@XTZ) himself, in regards to further products, support and purchace, he fully understood what it was i was after, made sure it was right for me, arranged payment and shipped absolutly stress free and in record time, with inbetween enducational information about the series. This guy devoted. So to some up XTZ's product and what the XTZ team do for me in three words, Beautiful, Devoted and Understanding. Thank you to Olle(CEO) Jag@epichomecinema for a great experience that i doubt will end anytime soon. GREAT JOB!! keep it up.
Produkt: SUB 10.17
I use it in a living room of 20m2 coupled with RX-900 & Focal Aria since 3 weeks.After many tests I prefer to used in closed mode to not have an uncontrollable sound level. I also note that the sub requires a good RCA cable to play sound with more subtlety, in general, a good guarantee of quality. Pro: - Build level - bass quality & goes down low - No lag or extend of the sound Cons: - Auto power mode requires ~ 1 hour to go in standby after cut of the signal. - Neighbours :)
Hi I supported this project in kickstarter and very happy with the performance of the headphones! The sound is incredible and the battery life is outstanding! The headphones are very comfortable and I can listen for hours without any ear fatigue. And the bonus is the dsp app that pushes the level even higer! All I can say is the price performance value is awesome! great job HTZ!
Produkt: SUB 10.17
Pro: - Very good output from a small box - The bass quality is very good - Nice quality finish - Tuning options really helpful to adapt it to what are you listening and the room - Club level output with both ports open in a small to medium room - Overall a very good product so far (only had it and tested it for a few days) Cons: - A variable subsonic filter would have been nice, some songs limit how much you can turn the volume up, due to over excursion on low frequencies, especially in closed mode. The EQ helps a little but not much. I managed to overcome this, as I play all audio from the PC, and used the free APO EQ, with a parametric equalizer set to -50 DB on 5Hz and 10Hz. - Over excursion is present also above port tuning, so with frequencies that are below 30 Hz you must be very careful with the level of Gain set on the subwoofer. - From what I tested, there is no limiter to prevent driver damage, so be carefull
Produkt: S5
I must admit that I was quite sceptical in the beginning to mix these small speakers with the M8 Tower and M8 Center but I was totally wrong. I've never heard a surround speaker with such amazing capabilities. The S5 makes you totally feel like you are inside the movies. It surrounds you with sound but still plays very accurate and precise. That was a total surprise!
Produkt: M8 Center
I ue the M8 Center together with 2 M8 Tower and 2 S5 in a dedicated home cinema. It's amazing how clearly the voices are reproduced by the M8. It always makes you want to increase the volume even more since it's a ure pleasure. Even at highest SPL it's still totally controlled and precise. Absolutely amazing. Well done!
Produkt: M8 Tower
Wow, that's an amazing pair of speakers. I use the M8 in my dedicated home cinema with M8 Center, and 2 x S5 and while other home cinema speakers are quite often not suitable for stereo music or even multi channel music, the M8 Tower sounds absolutely great in Stereo. While for the home cinema, I prefer a stronger bass, for stereo I prefer a neutral reproduction. The M8 Tower plays very, very deep but also very controlled and not with the typical "bass boost". Thus, I even use them in direct mode for stereo. Good job guys!
The XTZ Room Analyzer II Pro kit came in a very practical and robust case. Inside it there is the equipment needed to do a room acoustics analysis. Everything looks good quality and is very well conditioned. Assembling the kit was very easy, as it was installing the software. Operating it is very simple, as long as you understand what you're reading. In case you don't, the pdf operation manual gives a good help. I already had an idea of what was the frequency range where my room needed to be compensated, but now i know exactly where. That´s the good thing about this kit, it provides you the information you need, fast and with accuracy.
I supported these headphones as part of the Kickstarter. They have been excellent! However, due to heavy use, one of the ear pads split recently. I contacted XTZ in Europe (I'm in Australia) and they referred my query to their China office. The person there, Tracy Zhang, was just superb, quickly handled my request, sent photos of the replacements so I was comfortable, and then organised a PayPal invoice and without any fuss corrected an error I made in payment. Seriously impressive customer service to go with seriously impressive headphones!
Produkt: 99.25 LCR
I read most of these speaker's reviews, and questioned, whether these was the same speakers I was listening to. The reviews don't make it justice. They left me with the impression, that, OK , this was a fine speaker for the money. I guarantee, that it is much more. First of all, a thing or two about my HIFI background. I consider myself an audiophile, and have been bitten by the bug for these last thirty five years! With respect to loudspeakers I owned KEF C60, Celestion SL600, the Yamaha NS1000, and Dynaudio, the Confidence C4, the Audience, and the Contour models. All were a pleasure to listen to, until I auditioned the XTZ 99.25 LCR, that is. I ordered a pair, out of curiosity's sake. How can these €1800 ( with the Beryllium tweeter upgrade) compare with speakers costing six times as much? Well, I let them run in for about a week, playing various music genres, and things started to mellow, and let's say, fill in. My preference is for classical music, and love how a good speaker reproduces piano and voices. My first impression of piano rendition through the XTZ was of utter amazement. On my past speakers, I had never experienced piano playing, as visceral as on these speakers. The rendition was dynamic, weighty and a treat to experience. These speakers image brilliantly, I was enveloped in a credible soundstage, with great detail and lovely instrumental differentiation, but everything remained a whole and very natural. These speakers are revealing. They need excellent electronics to perform at their peak. At the moment they are hooked up to a Yamaha CD-S3000 CD player, and a Yamaha A-S3000 amp. In the past I owned much more expensive electronics, separate pre, power amps, Dacs, and all the rest, but this combination is heavenly. At the moment, listening to Mozart Piano Concertos 15 & 16 , Perahia with the English Chamber Orchestra. My time with these speakers, confirms that I am out of the upgrade spiral, and am just enjoying listening to music.
