Loudspeaker dispersion-
In most cases, speakers use drivers lined up vertically, the dispersion of the individual drivers doesn't vary, but the summed output will vary because the drivers are not concentric but positioned in a line and putting out different frequencies. 
Gallo Strada Reference
I haven't heard an A'Diva along with a Strada, or even A/B'd them. But it's my opinion that the front speakers in a surround system should all be the same. I know that they are all Gallo speakers but the construction is so different between them t...

Gallo 3.1's and amps?

Zu Essence vs Martin Logan
Mcallen,I tend to agree somewhat with Riley, but may I suggest a slightly different approach. State the general area in which you reside, list the speakers you're interested in hearing, and ask if there are others in your general neck of the woods...

Omni Speaker Options
The Gallo Reference series are nearly an omni with their CDT emitting sound in 330 degrees. I love mine.These, similar to the Ohms, also look interesting... I haven't heard them or the Ohms.
