Gallo Acoustics Strada 2 Reference Centre Speaker
Strada 2 is the latest incarnation of our acclaimed Strada reference loudspeaker. Strada 2 is a winning mix of impressive power handling, sensitivity, frequency response and textbook perfect dispersion. A true hi-fi quality loudspeaker that’s equally impressive on a wall or a floor stand, with music or a dynamic movie soundtrack.
SETTING THE REFERENCE STANDARD
Strada 2 is our most ambitious project to date – the original Strada design redefined the term “price to performance ratio”, performing at a level which for their size category was simply unheard of. Strada 2 takes that standard and raises the bar yet again. Impressive power handling, 90dB sensitivity, 68Hz-20Khz frequency response and textbook perfect dispersion enable this speaker to shine in any room, and with any system.
After reviewing the latest data on psychoacoustics, we developed our Optimised Pulse Technology (OPT) System, which transcends the current boundaries of loudspeaker performance and invokes the same visceral impact we experience at live sound venues. The implementation of the OPT System also required us to re-engineer our critically acclaimed Cylindrical Diaphragm Transducer (CDTTM) and hence the CDT 3 tweeter was born.
Enhanced with the OPT System, Strada 2 blurs the line between recorded sound and live performance, whether resting on a shelf or fixed directly to a wall, they produce the most expansive and full bodied soundstage imaginable. For most applications we recommend that Strada 2 is paired with a subwoofer, with our own TR-3D model being an excellent candidate.
For home cinema applications we’ve developed a second version of Strada 2, known as Strada 2 Centre. This alternate version utilises a horizontal tweeter arrangement and ensures that Strada 2’s acoustic performance is not compromised when used as part of multi-channel system.
Strada 2 and Strada 2 Centre loudspeakers are supplied with your choice of either table stands or wall mounting brackets. Floor stands are available as an option.
Strada 2 is available in a choice of two colour finishes, black and stainless steel, or all black.
