I am still shopping around for a potential upgrade for my RF-7s and was curious if anyone has directly compared the Vantage or Vista to the Gallo Ref 3.1? I know everyone will say Vantage but I am curious as to why. I have read the Gallo's have electrostatic like imaging without the small sweet spot. I have not heard the Gallo's and wondered if anyone here has. Finally, if I do go with the Vantage I am concerned about placement, I have my RF-7s about 18 inches (from the back of the speaker) from the front wall and about 3 feet from one side wall and open to the other side wall. Would this be a problem? I know 2 feet of space is usually recommended from the front wall. Does anyone have Vantages closer than 2 feet? Is the recommended 2 feet from the back of the panel or the base?
