    Thanks for your interest in the Xtz Cinema Series. This is a sub sat system where the lower frequencies are passed over to the subwoofer to resolve. The 1x12 does so with aplomb. A floor stander isn't relevant to this series. The Cinema M6 can be mounted on wall or placed on stands. There are obvious benefits in wall mounting including boundary gain and keeping them away from curious little hands!

    Yes, wall brackets for the M6 work. Equally, you can utilise the keymounts at the back of the speaker. Pop a couple of holes in the wall, screw in and hang the M6.

    You'd be more than welcome anytime. Look forward to it.

    I've never heard those particular Dali speakers but have owned quite a variety of speakers and heard even more. The cinema series are a serious piece of kit.

    When you hear them properly set up at Jag's place there is only one word I can find to describe them and that's 'Reference Quality'. You will be seriously surprised by the of soundstage these things can produce.

    I think you need to spend the sort of money that would buy you a small German executive saloon to better them.

    Anyway, go have a listen and tell us what you think:)

    As a Dali Zensor owner I have to admit to being very happy with my purchase. Great speakers for the money although I wouldn't get the Dali E12-F subwoofer. I would go with something from XTZ, SVS or BK Electronics instead.

    However the XTZ Cinema speakers are in a totally different league, performance and pricewise. That link for the Dali setup is £1,429 for the front speakers, centre channel, surrounds and a 12" subwoofer. The XTZ cinema series going by their website prices are EUR1,580 for just the fronts. The entire 5.1 system would be over EUR4,000 - although hopefully you would get some sort of deal off RRP.

    For sure the XTZ will be better but if I had the means to afford the XTZ my comparisons wouldn't be against the Dali Zensor speakers which are several pricepoints below the XTZ Cinema series.

    Just wondered how you came up with two systems that at first glance seem to have wildly different price points.

    With regard to the rrp point of the Cinema series as raised above, I'd place emphasis on the point that the price is fixed as is. The prices haven't been inflated to a particular rrp leaving headroom for negotiation. The customer base get value for money on the products from the outset. The closest comparable product costs quite a bit more in price.

    Just to clarify I think that the XTZ Cinema series is extremely good value for money at RRP going by reviews and forum owners experience with them :). I would always advise people to ask for a deal if one is to be had but totally understand that direct (or partner) sales are usually priced extremely aggressively anyway!

    Mostly I was trying to make the point that the OP seems to be looking at two specific systems with quite different prices which seemed a little odd.

    If they are going to listen to the Cinema series I am sure they will be impressed! Heck, they are on my audition list if I ever have the money to upgrade my setup ;)!

    If you looked anything like your avatar, I'd walk across hot coal to bring a set over to you for a demo.

    @brave Not too sure who you are referring to but if you click on their avatar (the picture that appears to the left of their posts) you should come up with a pop-up that allows you to do things like view their profile, ignore them...etc. One option is to "Start a Conversation" and this is effectively PM'ing (at least that is how I use it).
