Selling a pair of Gallo Nucleus Reference (II) speakers in very good condition. These are the composite spheres, not the aluminium spheres. Purchased about 18 months ago from the original owner who had them stored in the factory boxes for several years because of health problems. About 3 months ago, I stumbled upon a rare pair of speakers I'd been searching for for years (Nestorovics), and I'm now keeping those instead of these.
If you're not familiar with Gallo speakers, the boxless design of this series and the "3" series show the advantages of low diffraction cabinets.These speakers create a tremendous soundstage that is natural in it's width and depth with a huge sweet spot. The 330 Degree tweeter and spheres allows you to walk through the music. Sounds almost as good behind the speakers as it does in front of them. Lots of information about them on the web.
I have the original factory packaging for shipping the spheres, and home made boxes for shipping the frames. I would actually prefer a local sale in the D.C./Balto metro area, as shipping will be $200-$300 at least. The 4 boxes are quite large.
I have added a set of threaded Mapleshade footers to the bottom of the frames and include them in the sale. This was a very good upgrade as it really stabilized the frames and couples them to the floor.
I have all the original manuals, wiring option diagrams, sales brochures, and capacitors for attenuating the tweeters as well as the packaging.
