“Genesis of a myth”


“Our story”

“Benvenuti in Xavian”

The founder of Xavian, Roberto Barletta, was born in Turin, Northern Italy in a family with roots in Southern Italy. The family comes from the so called area “Magna Grecia”: these were the places where, among others, Archimédes, Empedokles, Pythagoras, Parmenides, Enrico Caruso, and Gesualdo da Venosa lived.
Roberto Barletta grew up with his grandmother in a family of musicians. His childhood was enriched by the sound of violin, guitar and singing. The childhood deeply influenced the soul of Roberto. In 1984 his interest in music and technology brought him to “play” with loudspeakers and reproduction of music in home environment.

In 1989 Roberto shocked the school exam commission with his project of an audio amplifier in A class. The journey began. This was the first great success, convincing him about the direction of his profession. The same year Roberto started working for an Italian company making loudspeaker systems and power amplifiers. This experience lasted five years and in 1994 Roberto decided to move to Prague. After two years of not simple “acclimatization”, Roberto founded Xavian. The name of the company comes from the Greek mythology “Xavian”: being a sacred place to the Muses and regarded as a source of inspiration. The first Xavian workshop was located in the centre of Prague. The second factory was located in Kladno, near Prague. Since 2013 the company is using an old, large mill in Hostivice very close to Prague.

it`s almost 20 years since Roberto personally assembled each speaker, personally designed each crossover and personally supervised the quality controls. These years Xavian has grown, the number of models has increased, its products have become available in several countries worldwide and collected many awards from the different parts of the world. Still today Roberto Barletta personally checks the finishes and overall quality controls.

In 2011 David Hyka joined the Xavian team, one of the most experienced and talented audio engineers in the world.
In 2015 the right time to close the circle has come: the return to the cultural roots and origin. The Epica series was born: Orfeo, its first model, astonished the Hi-Fi world by its sound quality, inner value and finish. Mythical Greek Orpheus (Orfeo in Italian) who was able to enchant animals and souls by the sound of his lyra, is the patron of the highest Xavian masterpiece.
We would like to share with you the joy we feel in creating our products for the music.

The speaker Hi-Fi and Hi-End market counts more than 200 different brands.
