I am looking at getting Gallo Classico-4. With a 60 day in home trial, its not a bad proposition with shipping free both ways.
I have tried Aperions in the past, one of their large floor standers, and loved it, but it was too much for my 2-ch bedroom setup and had to return them. I have their center channel in my current setup and it is very good. They also have very reasonable pricing along with free shipping from what I remember and their B-stocks are priced even more aggressively.
So did you get the Classico's? How large is your room? Its funny I came across your post. I have a pair of Mozart Grands powered by a Cambridge 840a. Fantastic sound for jazz, female vocals, easy listening, etc. But a complete disappointment when listening to rock or anything that involves some "excitement" unless the volume is really ratcheted up. They are placed in a large room (~3000 cubic feet, 20*18*9- doesnt help that is almost square) with openings into kitchen, study, etc.
I was hoping a pair of Songtowers might be something to look forward too until within the past week I started reading about the Classicos and the Tekton Pendragon. I noticed that classico need to be placed closer to the wall- the opposite of the Mozart Grands.
Curious to know what you finally decided.
