I have called every dealer in my area and none even have that speaker yet.
Apparently, at least according to one dealer, Gallo is at least 4-5 months behind production. The speakers made it to the reviewers, but apparently not to the stores yet. Earliest I was told was January. So it is impossible, in NY area at least, to compare them to anything! I am fortunately not in a hurry, but if a great deal comes along on the other speakers I am looking at, I will not be waiting. Maybe next time.
