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."

"The M8 Tower and M8 Center, with the eye-catching 6-channel array of tweeters, provide an ideal dispersion with ultra-low distortion. Combined with the S5 dipols and powerful SUB1X12 subwoofer, the XTZ Cinema set is a real eye-catcher for rousing home theater sound at the highest level. "

EDGE A2-300 - Fairaudio.de (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!"

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."

Cinema 1X12 - Hiendy HiFi Club (China)


November 20 - 2017

"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."

99.36 MK3 (FLR) - Technic3D.de (Germany)


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."

"The XTZ Tune 4 is a real "wonder" or realistic, a first-class (active) loudspeaker but also as a stereo solution for the living room. 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." "From our side, there is a clear purchase recommendation."

Tune 4 - Stereopluss (Norway)


July 01 - 2017

"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! "

June 20 - 2017

"The XTZ Spirit Sub 12 is able to convince in every discipline. Stylish optics, high-quality workmanship, rich equipment for great flexibility and a powerful yet precise sound are the characteristics of the Swedish subwoofer. 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." "This is how to build active subwoofers: the XTZ Spirit Sub 12 combines enormous performance and high-quality appearance for a small purchase price"

A perfect lacquer finish, high-quality connection panels and many possibilities of sound adjustment are not common in this price class. The subwoofer offers a tremendous performance, the built-in DSP and the sophisticated bass reflex adjustments are a clear statement towards the competitors at a price of just under 550 euros."

"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."

Spirit 11 - AVForums (UK)


May 19 - 2017

"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."

All Customer Ratings

Produkt: S2 Atmosphere
I took 2 pairs of S2 to be used in a home cinema setup. Overall I am pretty satisfied, at the beginning I used them with a mini hi-fi stereo and now they are placed as height speakers in the home theater. I think they integrate well with the rest of the system (the setup is a 9.1, Left, Right, Center and Sub are DIY projects and there is a couple of B&W 685 as surround left and right). I've used them with Dolby Atmos (original material and upmixer), Auro-3D (original material and upmixer) and DTS-X (upmixer only) with good results. They are well built and nice to look at
Produkt: 95.22
I ordered the 95.22 after a comparison with the Heco Celan GT 102F which are much more expensive. The 95.22 were playing even more precise in the higher frequencies and with same quality in the bass. Since they are also laquered and, to be honest, I've never seen a better finish at a speaker than this one, I decided clearly for the XTZ since they offer more for the money in my opinion.
Produkt: SUB 3X12
The 3X12 is just wow. Whenever I really push the volume to the max, I fear that my house is beeing damaged by this powerfull subwoofer. But it is not only the max SPL that is astonishing, it is also how smooth the sub is playing. It never seems to reach any limit and always stays precise. I even use it for music playback since it is a perfect complement for my floorstanding speakers. Great job guys!
Produkt: SUB 1X12
I just love this bad boy for the deep and powerful bass. I use 2 x 1X12 in my home cinema and I compared it to SVS PB 2000 and Klipsch R-115SW and he beat both of them. The 1X12 is really a perfect mixture of deep but still controlled and precise bass. I've never heard a better subwoofer in this pricerange and I would always buy it again. Full Recommendation!
Produkt: 95.33 Center
My system consists of 4 95.22 and 1 95.33 center. The 95.22 perform really great, especially if you consider the size of these speakers. The tweeter does a great job but also the bass is quite nice. In combination, these 4 surround speakers create a really good atmosphere with lots of details in the sound. Together with the strong 95.33 center which really plays voices in a perfect way, this is a great surround setup for the price! Full recommendation!

Produkt: SUB 8.17
The 8.17 is a really great subwoofer for the price and size. I use it for my 16sqm living room and it creates exactly the bass that I want, powerfull but still controlled. It fits perfectly to my bookshelf speakers! The only small thing I do not like is the white cover which makes the drivers shine through.
Produkt: 99.25 LCR
I own the following components from XTZ: 2 x 99.36 FLR 1 x 99.25 LCR Center 2 x 99.25 LCR 1 x 10.17 This is really an amazing surround set. I've heard lots of different surround sets before but only few and very expensive seem to be equal to mine concerning sound and finish of the speakers. The 99.36 are not only great in providing a cinema atmosphere but also for stereo application when listening to music. The tweeter is a real diamond, I love that smooth yet accurate sound with so many details. That is also the reason for me to choose the 99 series. Since the mids and treble are completely the same for 99.36 and 99.25, the set plays very harmonic and with a great surrounding stage. Since I like to listen to multichannel music, this is the perfect choice for me. The 99 center reproduces voices with perfect tonal balance and great clarity. In the beginning, I listened to music without the 10.17 but in between, I love the bass which this little boy provides so much that I also use it for music. This is the first subwoofer which I ever had and which I like when listening to music. It is so precise in the background that it never gets annoying. It even helps the 99-speakers to play freely with maximum of details. When watching a movie, I love that deep and strong bass which the 10.17 is able to create. 5 / 5 stars for every single piece of the set!
