I didn't have much luck in the Gallo thread so I'll try here. Just curious if anyone has used a Tube Amp with the Gallo 3.1's? I tried a Jolida 1000rc and it sounded nice. I'm looking to get the most out of my Gallo 3.1's and want to increase the power. I'm currently using a Sherbourn 5210a, which is rated at 5x200. I listen mostly to Rock music at loud volumes.


Would it be better to just stick with a Solid State amp like a Bryston 4bsst? Does anyone have any suggestions on some amps to try? Any thoughts or help on this would be appreciated.

The 3.1s will work with tubes, but really come alive with power. A nice sweet tube pre-amp with a quality high power class-d amp will give you fantastic results. Another option is Butler Audio, they make some nice hybrid amplifiers. One more option is to utilize the Gallo sub-amp to provide some extra power to drive the woofer, while you use tubes, to help give the sound the oomph that the tubes may not be able to provide. Good luck!
