This is an excellent, mint condition pair of Anthony Gallo Acoustics Reference Strada II speakers, in black/stainless finish. These are built to rather exotic standards, using full stainless steel spheres for the speakers, and aluminum for the rest of the speaker's body and stands...there is absolutely no plastic to be found anywhere. Woofer drivers are made from carbon fiber, and this speaker's claim to fame, the cylindrical CDT3 tweeter, is more or less a ribbon tweeter of sorts with a huge 180 degree dispersion. Each speaker weighs a hefty 16lbs.
As far as the sound goes, if you are a fan of high resolution headphones and enjoy hearing the smallest details, these will be right up your alley. These speakers are really electrostatic-like, have an astounding level of resolution and are incredibly revealing. The spherical design allows for a massive soundstage in both width and depth, and allows these to pull off a disappearing act much better than conventional box speakers. They've been compared to speakers 5-6 times their price in terms of their resolving capabilities. They run with an impedance of 8 ohms, and a sensitivity of 90db, making these very easy to drive with any amp.
This pair here will come with both the desktop stands as well as wall mounts; normally ordering either separately would cost an extra $260. I will not split the stands or wall mounts, must sell together. Original boxes are included for both speakers, the stands, and wall mounts, and everything will ship double boxed. The Strada IIs typically sell for $2000 new. My price is $1300 + split shipping.
