Concerto is a breath of fresh air in our offer, a new take on the established form of audiophile loudspeakers. We combine the unmistakable charm of traditional wood and timeless, conservative shapes in a classically conceived sound system with a choice of luxurious real wood veneers and technologically innovative solutions, building on 25 years of experience.
Selected high quality custom drivers from Danish brand Scan-Speak with Kevlar diaphragms ensure perfect reliability, low distortion and neutral tonality. Combined with our sophisticated crossovers and innovative circuitry, defining a new era of Xavian sound, the listening experience remains supremely musical and non fatiguing over the long term. Exceptional sensitivity is also a strength, leading to unprecedented airiness, vibrancy and dynamic reproduction. As a result, the Concerto offers great performances in low and medium volumes.
This series is also manufactured entirely at our headquarters in Hostivice, by skilled carpenters and experienced electronics engineers, to ensure the flawless application of a complex internal damping system in a space with fixed struts at every critical point of the enclosure.
The design of the bottom bassreflex with arched vents in the plinth not only emphasises visual clarity, but also helps to flawlessly establish the bass component of the reproduction, which can ideally spread in any space. In addition, the bottom outlet has the smallest footprint in a typical living room. A clever system of levelers allows for a perfectly horizontal position, as well as easy removal if you would rather use the feet or spikes of your choice.

“In conclusion, I rate the idea of comparing the reproduced music performed by Xavian and the miniature concert of the Prague Philharmonic on acoustic instruments as a unique experience. It is nice to know that there are still a number of people, including Mr Barletta, who devote their energy and talent to bringing us the experience of music in the highest possible quality. Yes, we’re still talking about near-perfect sound, clarity, colour and space, the advances in technology and the constant evolution in audio technology. However, I think that a recording of a performer from a carrier will always be “just” music reproduced, more or less removed from the real emotion of a live concert. I am glad that we are now back in the era when we can enjoy the musical experience unlimitedly “LIVE” and with almost perfect sound recall CONCERTO anytime at home.”

“Xavian says that after 25 years, on the occasion of this nice anniversary in the form of the Concerto and indeed the entire new Armonia range, they have launched a model that is “a little different” by their standards and which is meant to herald the beginning of a new style. With the Concerto, the classic rather conservative style of the speakers without “modernity” remains on the outside, the typical high level of workmanship and the ineffective charm of overall dignity remain. Compared to conventional solutions from a similar level, however, you get a really real high sensitivity that lends the speakers a charm of speed, openness, ease of detail and an overall impressive airiness and easy legibility that makes the music feel so fresh and naturally unmechanical, really close to liveliness. The Concerto are also very nicely balanced, letting your electronics and your recordings stand out in their own style – but it’s not austere analytics, so even the mediocre or worse can actually be well enjoyed. And being able to do so even when listening quietly gives you the freedom to listen to whatever and whenever you like. The Xavian Concerto are speakers with a high-end touch for mature long term entertainment.”

“Xavian Concerto loudspeakers offer a naturally balanced sound with exemplary tonal neutrality, free from the slightest colouration. They are able to captivate the listener with their musicality. The bass is full and confident, but does not interfere with the crucial midrange, which is drawn out to the smallest detail, enhanced by the extraordinary transparency that also makes the clear highs stand out. In the more intimate recordings, the visualisation of the instruments is perfect (to illustrate – when striking a large cymbal with the whisks, we can hear their individual strings). Superlatives also apply to the more or less three-dimensional representation of the musical scene, which feels, with a slight exaggeration, almost like half of a Dolby Atmos sound vault. The localization of instruments, or rather instrument sections, is precise. We must also praise the fast dynamic response. The ensembles generally play with ease, regardless of whether we listen quietly or loudly. They don’t lose their perspective even over highly articulated recordings, and the clear contours of the sound picture are omnipresent.”
