Anthony Gallo Acoustics – Reference 5LS
Long-awaited “Big Brother” to our acclaimed Reference 3.1, the Reference 5LS builds upon its smaller sibling’s considerable strengths, achieving even greater performance in virtually every aspect of sound quality. Measuring a full 78″ in height, this all-new loudspeaker is the closest any line source has ever come to being omni-directional. The Reference 5LS spans the gamut of frequency and dynamic range, yet its slender 7″ width and 11″ depth enable it to excel in virtually any listening room and blend beautifully into most decorating schemes. The all-new Reference 5LS loudspeaker is the culmination of everything Anthony Gallo has learned during a lifetime of speaker design.
At the cornerstone of the Reference 5LS’ standards-setting performance is our patented CDT IITM tweeter, whose power-handling, off-axis response and efficiency approach the textbook definition of ideal. Midrange drivers employ Gallo’s spherical enclosure technology, which virtually eliminates enclosure resonance and diffraction while enabling a broad 300-degree dispersion. The 5LS is also the world’s first speaker to use multiple CDT IITM tweeters. To form the line array, Gallo deploys seven CDT IITMs and eight 4″ carbon fiber midrange drivers, each housed in its own 5″ spherical enclosure.
Whether judged in terms of its output capabilities, spatial performance, aesthetic appeal or system and room compatibility, Gallo’s new Reference 5LS is a triumph of design and engineering innovation.
