ARGO Integrated Amp VIRGO III Line Stage CYGNUS DAC PERSEUS Preamp CENTAUR II Amp CENTAUR MONO Amp CENTAUR STEREO Amp



Argo / Integrated Amplifier

The Argo combines the Line Stage Gain Module concept of our Altair II and Virgo II preamps; the balanced bridged modular concept used in our Hercules II and Centaur amplifiers; and convenience features found on no other Constellation Audio products (yet). The sum of these stellar parts is a 125-watt-per-channel integrated amplifier that delivers the musicality of our larger components, yet is surprisingly compact-and yes, quite practical.




Virgo III / Line Stage

Virgo III is a subtle but significant evolution of our Virgo II line stage preamplifier. The new version introduces a unique, passive implementation of a digital volume control created by our "dream team" of world-renowned audio engineers. This new control works perfectly right from power-up and doesn't need the warm-up time of the light-dependent resistors used in Virgo II's volume control. It's as electronically pure as it can be, essentially just two resistors per channel in the signal chain. It incorporates no gain and no extra amplification stages. The listener enjoys the precision of pure digital control - with the musicality of a traditional analog control.




Cygnus / Digital file player/DAC

The Cygnus is designed for the way audiophiles listen to music today—and the way they will listen to it in the future. It combines an advanced digital-to-analog converter with digital file access and browsing capabilities.




Perseus / Phono Preamplifier

When it came time to create the Perseus phono preamp for our Performance line, we couldn't bear to depart from the design of the Orion Reference line phono pre. After all, the Orion blended the best efforts of our “dream team”: the circuit wizardry of legendary engineer John Curl, the industrial design prowess of Alex Rasmussen at Neal Feay Company, and the engineering and manufacturing mastery of Peter Madnick.




Centaur II / Mono Power Amplifier

Think of Centaur II as a state-of-the-art race car with an upgraded engine. The amplification circuits are essentially the same as in the original Centaur, but the power supply is radically improved. Supply capacitance is now tripled, with 18 10,000-microfarad capacitors replacing the original six. With three times as much stored energy on tap, Centaur II now achieves even stronger deep bass response and more dramatic dynamics.




Centaur Mono / Monoblock Power Amplifier

For those who demand a musical presentation free of concerns about dynamics and distortion, yet with all the delicacy and detail that a single-ended tube amp delivers, we present the Centaur Mono. The Centaur Mono incorporates all of Constellation Audio's groundbreaking amplifier technologies in a package that is, shall we say, a bit more living-room-friendly than our 275-pound-each Hercules monoblock.




Centaur / Stereo Power Amplifier

The Centaur is the only stereo amplifier in the world that can deliver the power of a large solid-state design with all the delicacy and detail of the finest single-ended triode tube amplifiers.
