Anthony Gallo Strada 2
Strada 2 is the latest incarnation of our acclaimed Strada loudspeaker. Impressive power handling, 90dB sensitivity, 68Hz-20Khz frequency response and textbook perfect dispersion enable this magnetically shielded speaker to shine in any room, and with any system.
Our most ambitious project to date, Strada redefined the term “price to performance ratio”, and performed at a level which, for their size category, was simply unheard of. Strada 2 raises the bar yet again.
After reviewing the latest data on psychoacoustics, we developed our Optimised Pulse Technology (OPT) System, which transcends the current boundaries of loudspeaker performance and invokes the same visceral impact we experience at live sound venues. The implementation of the OPT System also required us to re-engineer our critically acclaimed Cylindrical Diaphragm Transducer (CDTTM) and hence the CDT 3 tweeter was born. Enhanced with the OPT System,
Strada 2 blurs the line between recorded sound and live performance, whether resting on a shelf or fixed directly to a wall, they produce the most expansive and full bodied soundstage imaginable, without the necessity for a subwoofer.
Strada 2 is available in a second model variant known as the Strada 2 Centre. This version utilises an alternative horizontal tweeter arrangement, allowing use as a centre channel speaker in a surround sound setup.

As hi-fi speakers the Strada 2s sounded refined and natural with classical and all types of acoustic music. Rock was not far behind; the Strada 2 speakers and TR-1D sub make for a potent combination.Steve Guttenberg, news.cnet.com / Read Full Review
It's audiophile-approved studio monitoring but with full aural sex appeal to condense the vital difference in a casual but explicit form. This really is hot stuff!6moons.com / Read Full Review
