I'm considering upgrading my current system and purchasing a pair of the new Anthony Gallo Micro SE's (2013) which are rated as the following:
Frequency Response (on wall or ﬂ oor stand) 100 Hz to 18 kHz 100 Hz to 22 kHz
Frequency Resp. (isolation ring or table stand) 120 Hz to 18 kHz 120 Hz to 22 kHz
Sensitivity 85 dB/w 2.83v (1M)
Nominal Impedance 4 Ohms
Power Handling 125 Watts
Driver 3” wide-dispersion ﬂ at diaphragm
Cone Material Aluminium Honeycomb Sandwich
My budget is fairly limited so I have researched a great deal and seen that the Yamaha AS-500 is a pretty solid choice for mid range stereo amps.
These are the specs for the Yamaha AS500 if anyones unfamiliar:
- 120W x 2 (Max for Europe), 85W x 2 (RMS): High power output
- ToP-ART (Total Performance Anti-Resonance Technology)
- Aluminium-extruded front panel
- Subwoofer out
- Speaker A, B or A+B selection
- Rec Out selector
- Power management (Auto power off)
Can anyone tell me if the amp will be sufficient enough to drive these speakers and if you think it will be a good match? Obviously Anthony Gallo's appear to be somewhat rarer as a purchase for most people due to their size but the size is what attracts me to them and the exemplary sound you can get from them. I had a demo of the speakers in a shop however they didn't have the Yamaha in stock so couldn't actually demo that.
Any advice would be great. Thanks.
