    Ok... Just a question for a little information.

    Im wondering what a suitable AV/reciever/amp would you recommend for use with a 5.1 anthony gallo setup ( 1x Due 2x A'Diva, 2x Micros and 1xSub) Im aware that its a lifestyle system so they themselves are a bottleneck anyway :) .
    So what i was wondering what do you think would be a good amp to use with this type of setup.

    Thanks

    :)

    Thanks for the welcome :D !

    budget = under a grand! Unless there is something that is really worth the extra. However i am concerned that the Gallos can be very picky with what gear you have :rolleyes: ... Is it possible to get good result with that budget?
    Oh also this setup has nothing to do with stereo play back i have an entirely different system for that. So im only looking for
    Surround performance.

    Thanks :thumbsup:

    After a swift 5 minute search on the 'net, it appears the most favoured amp for your set up is the Pioneer AX5i
    Just realised the AX5i has been replaced by the AX5Ai with a price tag of around £1200 :eek:

    I see thanks. I also looked around and noticed many that paired the gallos with pioneer.
    thanks :thumbsup:

    It is a bit of a cop out saying that you should go and demo but I believe the Gallo speakers to be very particular about what they are partnered with and more care should be taken than with many other speaker / amp combinations.

    I don't think that it is a matter of cost either as I have heard a Gallo Micro / A'Diva setup singing quite sweetly via a Myryad amp and another far more expensive Due set playing through Tag amplification and sounding eminently ordinary.

    I think the Denon 2805 would be good enough for the Gallo's, plus you can get it for around £550 :thumbsup:
