What is amazing is that these gorgeously slimline creatures are capable of producing the most amazing sound.
The Nucleus Micros system from Anthony Gallo Acoustics combines super-realistic audio, great looks and a prudent price.
If you have need of a system that is at once discrete and musically engaging, majoring on communication, clarity and transparency, then look no further. Indeed, if it's the latter qualities that you prize then the Gallo Micros could easily be your speaker of choice, regardless of type. Don't confuse these with the six in a box toys that everybody and their wife seems to be offering these days. This is a genuine hi-fi speaker.
That's what I really like about this system: its ability to present a coherent stereo picture without filling the room with huge speakers is deeply impressive, and should win this system very many followers. Yes I freely admit I came to reviewing these speakers with some prejudice: that the Gallo Nucleus Micro and MPS-150 won me over is a tribute to its achievement.
There are numerous loudspeakers capable of producing fine sound, unfortunately most are too large, unattractive or power hungry to operate in many modern living spaces. That's what makes the Nucleus Micro different: a 4" diameter, all-metal sphere, available in a choice of eight finishes. The Nucleus Micro produces a vast soundstage and pinpoint imaging, in a beautifully small, visually attractive package. Hi-Fi, Home Cinema or Multi-Room; with Nucleus Micro the choice is yours. With a range of matching subwoofers available and an array of mounting options, it's easy to configure a Nucleus Micro system to fit your home and aspirations.
Imagine a truly high-end loudspeaker that fits in the palm of your hand. A speaker that comes in a palette of colours to complement any room – from simple matt black to striking polished stainless steel (and six other colours and finishes in between).
Nucleus Micro is flexible too. With a choice of four mounting options available, a Micro can be positioned just about anywhere. On a wall using the Micro Wall Bracket (in black or white), on any flat surface with the Micro Table Mount (in black or white) or simple'Isolation Ring' supplied, or what about the ultimate Micro mount – the elegant Wallflower stand (available in black, white or stainless steel).
By choosing a sphere, the strongest possible shape, we have eliminated internal resonance and external diffraction, the two main causes of loudspeaker distortion. Our patented S2 technology, enhances low frequencies that go way beyond conventional satellite speakers. By using our 3" full-range driver and by eliminating the crossover, the Nucleus Micro is endowed with spatial characteristics unsurpassed by any other loudspeaker, regardless of size or price.
