I have the complete 5.1 profile arrangement. For movies I run them off my arcam avr 350 and for vinyl and cds I use a two channel red wine signature 30.2 amp. I am, for once, entirely pleased with my set up. I reccomend the Profile series, especially at that price, whole heartedly. I have heard the Gallo's and they are not in any way comperable to the Profiles. They produce a much different type of sound which I do not consider to have the redemptive qualities of the Focals. Put simply, they are not as good in just about every way. That said, I have heard almost all of the Focal Electra line speakers and consider them a significant step up from the Profiles. They cost a good bit more but wow, are they good. If you have the funds, I would give them a listen. Good Luck.
