Headphone Divine - Audisseus (Germany)


March 23 - 2017

"With the XTZ Headphone Divine, the Swedes make an impressive debut in the headphone segment, comfortable to carry and uncomplicated in handling, the Divine is a good companion for its sensitivity and the low impedance of low-power amps from smartphone and co. While its balanced sound image does not have any weaknesses but scores with long-term suitability and agile suppleness."

Tune 4 - technic3D.com (Germany)


March 11 - 2017

"The Tune 4 is particularly impressive for its price class of around 500 euros, which is mainly due to its transparency, structure and high-quality precision. Tune 4 rewards the listener with a bony-dry, precise bass, and thus expresses the emotional expressive power of even the most demanding music impressively." "At the same time our team awarded the XTZ Tune 4 as a sound reference in the active box price class below 500 €."

Spirit Series 5.0 Set - SuperAV (China)


March 10 - 2017

"The Spirit speakers have embraced high technology, and they are your best choice if you prefer a powerful and balanced sound experience. Indeed, your demand would be available by the different ways of speakers matching." "When appreciating the movies, I select another blue-ray disc of Celion Dion Las Vegas Concert to review the reproduction of the Spirit Series in s multichannel setup. What surprises me is that it leaves me a so incredible impression that I feel surrounded amongst the rhythm performed by drums and the clear and accurate high-pitched voice of Celion Dion!"




SUB 8.17 - technic3D.com (Germany)


March 09 - 2017

"With a clear, precise bass reproduction which can be modified by the wide range of possible settings between particularly deep and structured-dry sound, the subwoofer inspires its listeners. This allows the discerning user to adapt the sound perfectly to his / her personal preferences as well as the conditions of the listening room. The Sub 8.17 presents itself as an excellent bass loudspeaker, which is perfectly suitable for the sound support of compact boxes and can be considered almost as a bargain for the price of 345 euros (plus shipping). XTZ has without doubt landed a perfect hit with this subwoofer."

Divine Alpha - AREA DVD (Germany)


March 09 - 2017

"The XTZ speaker therefore marks its place in the dance of the top speakers, which are still affordable. Practically nowhere is there more box for money - first-class housing, highly solid, brutally heavy, elaborately braced and pattern-processed. In addition there are drivers of well-known manufacturers, which offer reference level without compromises. The Divine Alpha, with its two qualities, is very exciting: Emotional-deep acoustic harmony and a sovereignty, which we rarely experienced in 20 years of test experience."

Spirit 11 - Hifi-Journal.de (Germany)


March 07 - 2017

"The Spirit 11 doesn't sound or look like a beginners speaker at all. The processing is very high-quality, the massive cabinet is equipped with an excellent varnish finish and is very valuable. The Spirit 11 delivers a rich, dynamic sound, and has also been harmoniously tuned."
- Matthias Fengler

+ Valuable processing / lacquer finish
+ Technical equipment
+ Customizable sound
+ Sound characteristics / tonality
+ Allrounder music / film operation
- Bracket for front cover optically not solved optimally

Spirit Series 5.1 Set - AREA DVD (Germany)


March 06 - 2017

"XTZ has practically done everything right with the Spirit series: natural, harmonious and precise sound, noble workmanship, contemporary look - and the whole at a price that amazes. For a around 2,000 EUR, it will be difficult to get an even more powerful overall package. The extremely powerful active subwoofers clearly stands out in the Spirit set. All components are well processed, leaving little scope for criticism: It would be desirable if the Swedes offered suitable top firing modules for the Spirit 11 front loudspeakers."

99.25 MK3 (LCR) - WHAT HI*FI (India)


March 01 - 2017

"A versatile and well built pair of bookshelf speakers, the budget for which if you have, there is no where else you should put your money." "We have hardly anything to complain about here. If there has to be pointer, it would be the 99.25's disagreeable nature with MP3s. You make that mistake and the XTZs don't forgive you for your bad judgement. Feed these only the best you have to offer and enjoy a sound that's well rounded and balanced. These are speakers best enjoyed with a nice glass of whatever poison you like and a playlist that won't end."
- Kaizad Billimoria

+ Superb balance, detailed midrange, airy treble, tight bass
- You just get two for that price, we want more

Spirit 11 - StereoPluss 1/17 (Norway)


February 18 - 2017

"XTZ Spirit 11 plays well above expectations, and marks a new level of quality in the price range below 8.000 NOK. They sound entertaining and engaging and together with a reasonable amplifier you are only one purchase away from an amazing listening experience. Suddenly XTZ was the reason why all the other manufacturers of speakers must sharpen up yet little extra, get up very early in the morning and come up with new stuff that plays even better. They also did well, but right now I can not see others who completely manage to compete with Spirit 11 at this price."

Tune 4 - Lautsprecher-Junkie (Germany)


January 05 - 2017

"Even at a low volume, you're almost in the middle of the action, and the basic design of the Tune 4 is also very good at low volume, with a warm and precise bass. It is a very pleasant and unobtrusive sound picture, which is further refined and optimized with the DSP settings "On Wall" or "On Desk". Then the software can be used to slow down the bass or to modify the run times for the table reflection, which can definitely be heard and the difference is impressive."

Cinema 1X12 - Sound & Vision (USA)


December 30 - 2016

"Given the SUB 1X12’s hulking presence, I couldn’t resist cueing up a few favorite bass cows. The opening of Hall & Oates’ classic “She’s Gone” bloomed with 30-Hz deliciousness, while the finale of the Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony was in-the-hall awesome, and my few, in-the-name-of-science dub-step tracks indeed proved a dentist’s best friend. 

Even at reference level in my substantial-volume studio, the XTZ sub had no problem presenting Max’s most impressive impacts and explosions (of which there are many) with full effect and nary a trace of limiting or overreach."

99.25 MK3 (LCR) - Fairaudio.de (Germany)


December 20 - 2016

"The XTZ offer a perfect performance in almost all criteria, but their greatest talent is that they reproduce music wonderfully homogeneously. The clean reproduction of sound colours, which clearly shows every instrument, intertwines with high localization, resulting in a tremendously authentic overall impression. Similar synergies arise from tonal neutrality and resolution. Both - in each case to a large extent - do not sound cool or analytical, but simply correct."

Spirit Series 5.1 Set - Hemmabio (Sweden)


December 13 - 2016

"With its sturdy and almost austere appearance XTZ gives a very solid impression. It is conveniently, well built, not too expensive and also sounding with a high entertainment factor. Actually, there is nothing to complain on, we surrender and give two solid Thumbs up! Although I liked the 95 series and although I call myself a reactionary, I think the Spirit is a major step forward in the development for XTZ."
- Thomas Odeltorp

+ Well built and good concept
+ Accurate and smooth sound
- In this price range - nothing!




Tune 4 - Hifi & Musik (Sweden)


November 27 - 2016

"As usual, I started listening to heavy psychedelic trance music and directly got a mild shock over the high sound pressure which these small speakers can deliver. Reverberation is dark and the bass performance really impressive. Placed on a desk in a not too large room, the Tune 4 provide lots of joy and energy."
- Johan Ahlström, Hifi & Musik nr 12/2016




Tune 4 - Techtest.org (Germany)


November 01 - 2016

"Tune 4 is a premium speaker for sophisticated demands. Thus they play very natural and detailed what is very convincing especially when playing challenging music. They are not effect-speakers which try to convince by an exaggerated bass level. It is perfect for users who value detailes and balanced sound."

Spirit Series - Zhuhai (China)


October 20 - 2016

"The new Spirit series is made for people who appreciate the true quality of music and movies. It is like real sound, which gives you the feeling to really be in the center of the event. Gripping bass as well as accurate mid and treble, are the strengths of the Spirit Series. The use of in-house developed and optimized high-quality drivers in neatly manufactured cabinets, with a great finish, is unique in this price range and even provides a larger number of audiences to enjoy the natural and balanced sound of XTZ speakers."
-Zhuhai




Tune 4 - Hörerlebnis (Germany)


October 16 - 2016

"With Tune 4, XTZ has really presented a powerful speaker in the compact speaker class. For the price you can build a small, fine high-end system, which can grow with increasing demands. Do not forget: The amplifier electronics is already included in the price. There is also a wide range of possible applications. It's just like a product of the now time from Cupertino, California. And as already described, like an espresso: small, strong and black - refreshing and rich in content."
- Andreas Limbach

-Benoît Campion

+ Warm, musical sound
+ Wide sound stage
+ Compact and powerful
+ Solid construction
+ Many connections for a stereo speaker
- slight distortion at high volume
- preferred good recording

- Remote control a little too small

Headphone Divine - EAR IN (Germany)


August 29 - 2016

"Even without DSP support the Headphone Divine sounds absolutely convincing. Neutral without the popular bass boost, it provides a pleasantly balanced, transparent sound that has a lot to offer in terms of fine detail and dynamics. Whether actively driven via Bluetooth or passively via cable the headphone does a great job. With the DSP the sound is even better. "
- Martin Mertens




Tune 4 - Ljud & Bild (Sweden)


August 26 - 2016

"XTZ speakers have a surprisingly rich bass for such small elements. They sound definitely bigger than they look, and electronic pop music rhythms have good fullness and weight. "

Divine 100.33 - Hifi-Statement (Germany)


June 06 - 2016

"The XTZ Divine 100.33 is  priced at High End beginners, sonically it is in a whole different league. The name Divine contributes as such because it manages to transport music and emotions powerfully and expressively. A real recommendation for ambitious hifi-lovers."

99.25 LCR / SUB 8.17 - AREA DVD (Germany)


June 03 - 2016

"High-quality finish, first-class sound and favorable purchase price: XTZ offers with 99.25 and SUB 8.17 an all around successful 2.1 Ensemble." "For relatively low purchase price you receive a combination of the bookshelf speakers 99.25 and the active Sub 8.17 a powerful 2.1-ensemble that can shine with many strengths. The small subwoofer  is acoustically grown up and offers an wonderful sound. It acts precisely and supports the two 99.25 excellent. The good looking bookshelf speakers with their unibody design provide an impeccable detailing, a pleasant tonality and an authentic space. Overall an excellent, highly recommended combination. Since the subwoofer also has high-level connections,  a subwoofer preamp for integrationis not needed. The finish of the XTZ components convinced us as usual."

Headphone Divine - Graczofil (Poland)


June 01 - 2016

"To sum up: XTZ Divine is a versatile headphone. With a fairly compact design and Bluetooth connectivity, you can conveniently use their smartphone to travel well and alternatively also offeres wired connectivity through the classic mini-plug jack of 3.5 mm. In addition, they look good, they are well made and can carry on a conversation by telephone. I appreciate the sound quality also very positively. The price at the time of this review is 170. Is it worth it? If you are looking for a wireless headset with a high quality, it is definatly worth to buy it."

May 25 - 2016

"Far from it, the floorstand speakers are giving even for acoustically most demanding material their best and convince with precise timing, wonderful balance and excellent fine dynamics. The Multi-channel system of 99.36, 99.25 and Sub 12.17 continues this virtues and so present different artists like Metallica (" Through the Never ") or Adele (" Live at the Royal Albert Hall ") perfectly.
