REFERENCE STRADA 2 AND TR-3D SUBWOOFER
Featured in The Absolute Sound

 

"While the Strada 2s are obviously very compact, they nevertheless are capable of surprisingly vigorous output levels and demonstrate the sort of turn-on-a-dime dynamic agility that allows them to track sudden changes in musical energy levels."
Chris Martens -- – April 2014

Reference Strada 2

"Oh, and the things they do well — speed, soundstaging, imaging, and resolution to name a few — they do extremely well. Anthony Gallo and his team deserve kudos for going out on a limb and thinking outside of the literal and proverbial box."
--John Richardson – December 2013

Reference Strada 2

"The Reference Strada 2 system is a lovely and effective problem solver. It is compact, easy on the eyes, and will fit in spaces where larger floorstanding speakers will not"

Reference Strada 2

"Does super tall soundstage float your boat? If so, the soundstage of the Strada 2 is about as tall as you'll find anywhere in any speaker. Want speakers that are less visually imposing? Again, the Strada 2 system would be the winner."

Reference Strada System
Editor's Choice by AVGuide.com

 

"At a price nearing $7000 the Reference Strada system is certainly not cheap, but it is worth every red cent of its asking price as it can, quite seriously, stand tall in comparison to systems twice its price. Very enthusiastically recommended."

Reference Strada Loudspeaker
Reviewed by 6moons.com

 

"The perhaps ultimate on-wall and desk-top speaker. Think of it as a low-efficiency single-driver widebander without shoutiness and higher resolution but equivalent coherence and speed."

Reference Strada
Reviewed by Neal H. Pogue

 

"...when I came across Gallo's newest speaker, the Reference Strada, I was getting psyched just thinking about its potential in a professional environment. No, these weren't intended for a studio, but neither were the A'Diva Ti's and they work brilliantly for me."

Reference Strada Loudspeaker and TR-3 Subwoofer
Reviewed by HomeTheaterHiFi.com

 

"They are truly excellent loudspeakers, and clearly better than my Reference 3.1s, clearly making them an excellent bargain at their $3400 system price."

Reference 3.5 Loudspeaker
Reviewed by HomeTheaterHiFi.com

 

"The Gallo Reference 3.5 is most definitely a step up from the Reference 3.1 and the Strada/TR3 combo I recently tested. It?s clearly better in every way than the 3.1, and improves significantly on the Strada, which was already better than the 3.1, except perhaps in the bass. Is it worth the extra dough as compared to the Strada? Is it worth upgrading an existing pair of 3.1s? For me, the answer to that is yes. I will be replacing my 3.1s with the new 3.5s. They're worth every dime, in my opinion."

Reference 3.5 Loudspeaker
Reviewed by AVGuide.com

 

"The Reference 3.5 is a sure-footed, disciplined, and musically involving speaker that executed virtually all that I asked of it. Minor quibbles aside, the Ref 3.5 deserves an unhesitatingly high recommendation. And if deep, carefully, crafted soundscapes really stir your imagination, then experiencing the Gallo is an absolute must."

Reference 3.5 Loudspeaker
Named to Top 10 Greatest Speakers on cnet.com

 

"Sonically, the Reference 3.5 has the ease and poise of a much larger and more expensive speaker. At $6,000 the Reference 3.5 is the most affordable speaker on this list and offers more than a glimpse of state-of-the-art audio."

"Compact, materially dense, geometrically complex, built with quality and exclusive components?the tweeter is utterly unique - the return of the Gallo Reference 3 in now point 5 iteration is another triumph of very clever engineering."

Reference Strada Loudspeaker
Reviewed by Residential Systems

 

"I've compared them to the two most highly regarded and expensive monitor speakers in high-end audio, respectively $15,000 and $30,000 a pair. The Stradas, floor-mounted on our custom ultra-rigid stands, simply outperformed both of them in every respect that matters, whether for music or soundtracks."
