    Hi has any one used an Anthonty Gallo Due speaker as a center channel if so what do think does it give a good sound worth the £500 as i need a small center due to wall mounting my plasma i was looking at this speaker .
    My M5c is to big to go on the wall shame as i have only had it less than a year :hiya:

    It is important that the centre channel and the two main speakers are similarily voiced and I would imagine that the voicing of the Mission and Gallo are completely different.

    Can you not put your existing centre speaker on a stand ?

    The Gallos are very neutral, I had a Due centre working very well with very different sounding Celestion C series front L/R. Now I have Gallo A'diva front L/R speakers it does sound better, but the previous odd match didn't sound wrong or anything like that.

    I really like the A'divas, they are mainly used for movies. I'm very happy with music performance, I just don't listen to music as much as I watch movies. You do need a good sub, I use a B&W ASW2500 with mine. I found sub integration was very easy and the gallos sound full range, i.e you can't tell bass is coming from the sub. Gallos need need to be run-in so don't do any critical listening until the have done at least 20-30 hours (ideally 50 or so).
