Gallo Acoustics

WE THINK A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY

Here at Gallo Acoustics we don’t make boxy speakers, we know there’s a better way. For 20 years the Gallo name has been synonymous with spherical speaker design. Our acclaimed products are designed around spheres, thus eliminating resonance and internal diffraction, the two main causes of loudspeaker distortion.

WHERE IT ALL STARTED

Anthony Gallo designed his first loudspeaker at the tender age of fourteen. His first commercially available product – the Nucleus reference speaker, went on sale in 1994. Today, Gallo Acoustics loudspeakers are sold in over 30 countries worldwide.

Anthony Gallo was born in 1963 and from an early age he had an interest in the sciences and would take apart just about anything he could lay his hands on. At age 13 he began to become hooked on loudspeaker design. His first audio experiments were with electrostatics. “I got shocked a zillion times,” Anthony recalls. “I was always awed by electrostatics’ transparency and purity. The dynamics, however, were always short of my expectations.”

Subsequent experiments with ribbon drivers proved difficult to drive and limited in dynamic range. However, Anthony’s search for the “Holy Grail of tweeters” took a dramatic turn when he discovered a magazine article about Piezo film in the early 1980s. “I threw the magazine aside for a few years,” he says, “but in the back of my mind I knew that I would work with this material some day.” After a few years of experimentation, the first version of Anthony’s CDT (cylindrical diaphragm transducer) was born in 1987. Further refining the CDT design over the better part of the next decade, Anthony came to the realisation that he was onto something special, and decided to pursue his dream of designing and manufacturing loudspeakers full-time. Anthony Gallo Acoustics was born.

The first fruits of the new venture appeared in the form of the original Nucleus hi-fi loudspeakers, which utilised state-of-the-art wooden cabinet technologies and weighed in at over 130kg per channel. Although the speaker boasted incredible sound quality, it was deemed too expensive and impractical. However, it was a necessary step in the evolution process of Anthony’s loudspeaker design, and led directly to the two key products that would kick the company’s success into a higher gear, the Nucleus Solo and The Nucleus Reference. Audiophiles worldwide soon began to passionately seek out these ground-breaking speakers. In 1999 the company turned its attentions to producing an affordable, ultra-compact hi-fi loudspeaker. The company’s spherical and S2 technology, which provided the ability to obtain high output from small cabinets with no coloration, led to the development of the ultra-successful 4” Micro speaker, a classic still in production today. Further developments to Anthony’s CDT tweeter design saw the development of the award-winning Reference 3 series and Strada/Strada 2 reference speaker, cementing the company’s reputation for audiophile quality delivered in a compact form factor.

OUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY AND TECHNOLOGIES

Spherical Design: Since our inception our trademark has been the use of a spherical enclosures in our speaker designs. The Nucleus Solo, our first loudspeaker design, began as a solid aluminum disc which was then spun into a hollow 12″ ball. The spheres were then placed in an electrolytic bath, which formed a hard shell that actually bonded to the metal. This anodising process give our enclosures the mechanical properties of a ceramic, one of the most acoustically inert materials on earth. This combination of spherical geometry and anodised aluminum construction made this enclosure virtually free of resonance and diffraction, the two main causes of loudspeaker distortion. Similarly, the properties of heat-treated and powder-coated steel give our smaller, 4″ Micro and 5″ A’Diva loudspeakers the same enclosure characteristics.
