Bottom Line:   
History :
I have been using planar loudspeakers (Magneplanars, Martin Logans, QUADs) for no less than 20 years with great satisfaction. Up till last November I was using the MG 3.6s with immense delight.
While the planars sounded grand in my earlier listening room measuring 18ft. x 28ft. they became physically dominating in my present 11ft. x 13ft. listening room particularly with connecting cables running all over the room. In October I decided to give up the 3.6s and choose the smaller NFR 630s. However by chance I stumbled onto a short British review in the internet on the Gallo Due.
What attracted me most was the wall mounting potential of the Dues besides their diminutive size. I ordered a pair from an ad on Audiogon, paid USD180 for shipping and a further USD150 for customs tax and within 3 hours of receiving the speakers I had them mounted on the wall, 7ft. apart and 2ft. from the wall-ends and set up my old REL STRATA II powered sub-woofer in parallel with the Dues and at a cross0ver frequency of 63hz.
Performance :
The days of listening following the installation were disappointing, particularly after the years of enjoying the sound of the 3.6s. However after 1 month the sound began to improve and after 2 months it became superb. Whether the music was chamber, orchestral or opera it got one totally involved, with no sense of listening-fatigue but with rich, realistic rendering of all types of (classical) music. Truly magnificent.
I do not miss the MG3.6s anymore.




Associated Equipment :
Audio Research CDT1 CD transport, Audio Research DAC1 converter, Audio Research LS3 preamp, Audio Research D115 MK.II power amplifier, Siltech digital interconnect, Madrigal analogue interconnects and Audioquest Speaker cables.
