Anthony Gallo A’Diva
THE ROUND SOUND REDEFINED
By taking the key ingredients of the classic Nucleus Micro design and marrying them to a larger enclosure, Anthony Gallo has created the A’Diva - a little loudspeaker with a massive sound.
Just an inch larger than the Micro, the A’Diva frees an extra half octave of bass, which means it can be used without the confines of an additional subwoofer. So if the size or the styling of the room rule out a dedicated bass box, A’Diva is the speaker for you.
When it comes to placing A’Diva in your room, it’s your choice. Thanks to its low distortion and incredibly coherent sound, the highly adaptable A’Diva can be used in just about any application including two channel stereo, home cinema, multi-media, multi-room and custom install. It can also be mounted practically anywhere, in cabinets or on book shelves for example, without exciting bass resonance problems.
The A’Diva can be mounted to a wall, tucked into a bookcase or placed atop a television without compromising sound quality.
Alternatively, beautiful floor stands are available in a range of colours. A’Diva is fully shielded for safe placement near televisions.
A’Diva shares a version of Anthony Gallo’s acclaimed 3” drive unit (as used in the Nucleus Micro) and can be mixed and matched with other Gallo speakers in a home cinema set-up. The A’Diva for example, makes a perfect centre channel speaker in a Nucleus Micro 5.1 system.
A’Diva is available in powder coated white, powder coated silver, matt black, high gloss black and brushed stainless steel finishes.
A’Diva benefits from the same patented technologies and physical advantages as the award winning Nucleus Micro. By using a spherical enclosure we have eliminated internal resonance and external diffraction, the two main causes of
loudspeaker distortion. In addition, by having no crossover, A’Diva is endowed with unparalleled spatial characteristics

GQ Magazine "Best Stuff of the Year"
Anthony Gallo takes the mini speaker / supersound to the next level.
The Gallos have something for everyone. If you've got a ridiculously expensive system but want something good for not a lot of bread for a second system, you need to check out the Gallos. If you're just getting started with the assembly of your first (or second or third!) component system, you'll likely be amazed what you can achieve with them. And if you find yourself in the market for "Lifestyle" speakers, these are the ones you want. They easily best every other system in this genre I've heard. This system is so recommended!
For its combination of price, performance and a level of technology that makes them such a room-friendly and unobtrusive system, the Gallo system is undoubtedly worthy of our Blue Moon award and hereby wins my most vocal nomination. Well done, Gallo.
As a final note on that subject, this Gallo system is too good to send back. I'm keeping all of it. The whole works. Best money I've ever spent, too.
