Introduction to the Gallo Classico CL-4 Loudspeakers

Gallo loudspeakers have had a long history of exceptional sound quality. In both this publication and others, no one has much bad to say about Gallo's reference quality loudspeakers. I like them so much, I've owned several of their speakers, including my current Reference 3.5s. Opinions on styling are a different story. The very unusual styling of the Reference series is very much "love it or hate it". The new Classico line hopes to offer sound quality in line with the more "unusually styled" Gallo speakers in a more traditional box cabinet. Here, I review the top of the line floor standing Classico CL-4s, to see if they can delivery the goods.
