I had this little amp for a while. Sounded great but i agree with you Ed, the sound can be a little lean. You need to be carefull what speaker you intend to drive. But it does pack a punch despite its small form factor. Had no problem driving my Tannoy DMT 10 MK2's to earsplitting levels. Build quality is really excellent given its price. Feels solid.
I wasn't going to comment but since reviews on XTZ kit are almost as rare as Hen's teeth, how could i resist.
I have had an Edge for a 1.5 yrs and cannot fault it one bit ( Cheers @MIKEVO ). It only drives a center speaker (XTZ 99.25) so you could say its under used. However, i have used it with my floorstanders in stereo mode and was very pleased with what i was hearing.
Like Mark, i don't find it lean at all. In fact the opposite. For the price paid with £50 off the rrp at the time, got a bit of a bargain IMO.
@nimman - Had the same idea for my fronts but i have the D3 which is still doing a stella job with them. Although the D3 has a bit more of a handle on things there's not really a great difference in sound between the 2 amps.
Agree with the others who have this amp, fantastic value, I tried one to start with replacing some high end mono blocks and was very impressed, so much so that I got another one for my centre channel! They are driving Kef Reference which dip to about 3 ohms with no problem, and as Mikevo mentioned the bass is very very controlled.
Hi everyone. I'm about to buy a
Denon AVR-X3600H receiver. Would this XTZ amp be a good option to power the extra channels the Denon can process? I've also been looking at the cheaper Tibo PA150, but don't mind spending a little more of it's worth it. I did ideally want an amp with 12v trigger in, but finding it hard to track one down at this price point.
Appreciate and help.
