When you form a “dream team” of the world's best audio engineers and industrial designers, then give them carte blanche to create the finest audio components ever made, you end up with products that rise above all others in their category. Case in point: the Altair line stage. The Altair delivers unprecedented sound quality with convenience, versatility, and elegance no other high-end preamp can match.
Te believe great audio components should deliver convenience and ease of use commensurate with their sound quality. This is why we created the Pyxis, the high-end audio industry's most advanced and distinctive remote control. We include the Pyxis with the Altair line stage, the Sirius HD digital music source, and the Orion phono preamplifier.
Our claim that the Orion is the finest phono preamp ever built is less audacious than it may seem. Its circuitry was designed by John Curl, widely considered the world's best phono preamp engineer. Its construction and parts quality far exceed those of any competing product. Of course, our claim can truly be verified only by the listener-but we are confident that all who hear the Orion will be moved by its depth, detail, and musicality.
Monoblock Power Amplifier
Our “dream team” of the world's finest audio engineers and industrial designers achieved something truly remarkable with the Hercules, comparable to a single vocalist possessing both the warm baritone of Johnny Hartman and the penetrating soprano of Maria Callas. The Hercules is a tremendously powerful amplifier that sounds as musical as a single-ended triode tube amp.
