Smaller, design-friendly speakers are in these days, especially for multipurpose media rooms and to that end Anthony Gallo Acoustics is just having a ball.
The company’s spherical speaker designs offer multipurpose and flexible sound for just about any room—with the latest balls of fury coming in the form of the Strada Center and Strada loudspeakers that are additions to Anthony Gallo’s Reference Series.
They provide multiple mounting options without being too obtrusive in your room and still delivering big sound, aided by the company’s S2 Technology to boost low-frequency extension.
Dimensions on the Strada are 6.5 x 12.5 x 5.5 inches. The small form factor of the speakers and new CDT 3 tweeter and new grill—aimed to improve vertical dispersion—make ‘em useful as dedicated surrounds too if you want to dot your room with a full Anthony Gallo system.
Look for the Stradas around April, with a retail tag of $1,000 apiece.
