Hmm. I am not a big fan of line arrays but those look very interesting.
Ditto, and ditto.
I think the MTMTMTMTMTMTM approach is neat. At least it looks cool. It would be interesting to see how they deal with the potential lobing issues...
potential lobing issues?
I bet they simply ignore them. Though with all the physics rumors flying around, maybe they've convinced physics to take a long walk off a short plank...
Still, definitely interesting.
Yea, perhaps Gallo has found a way to create an area of suspended physics. Isn't that what audiophiles mean by the "sweet spot"?
It's all a matter of balancing priorities.
I heard this thing, a poster child for how to do line arrays with maximum comb filtering and response lobes. A sonic mess. It sounding like a small two way in image size with three other two ways in the room at same time.
I was staggered that it even made it out of the designers test mule stage.
I'm not sure what you heard, but it wasn't their 5LS. Were you in the right room? I heard it at CES and that's not remotely what I heard. Anthony Gallo has all the respect in the world from audiophiles (including myself) and this speaker is absolute dynamite. Anyone that's interested, go to Gallo's site (I think it's www.roundsound.com) and read what all the people are saying about the 5LS. I know I want a pair, I just can't afford them.
Opinions will always vary on these types of products, if not, there would be one "perfect" speaker that we'd all own (or at least, only one speaker per price point). But, that's not the case. I'd be very curious to hear them as I own Gallos, but have also not had the best reaction to Line Arrays in general.
Only a fool would own Gallo speakers.
I must be a fool for hanging out with you.
A fool, or a glutton for punishment.
No w3ay, we always agree.
McNabb55 - Yes it was that model, yes it was at CES, and yes it was as I described it. Know Gallos stuff from the Martian Eyeball days, doesn't change the fact that this statement speaker is greatly flawed.
It comes down to one thing, if he doesn't hear these flaws, then the speaker is a delight.
Well said, Steve.
Can you describe what each of those things sound like? I'm just curious as to what to listen for when I check speakers out.
