To craft the finest amplifier ever built, one must go beyond traditional thinking and cookie-cutter circuitry. We took this leap of faith to create the Hercules Tower.
The remote control is usually the primary interface between an audio component and its owner. Yet many high-end audio products are equipped with the same remotes supplied with mass-market components. We feel our customers deserve far better, which is why we created the Pyxis system controller. The Pyxis is not only easy to use and incomparably elegant, it also allowed us to expand the functionality and user adjustment capabilities of our audio components.
Our dream team of the world's best audio engineers and industrial designers has a simple mission: combine revolutionary engineering with impeccable execution to deliver sound quality no competing product can approach. Nowhere is this philosophy more evident than in the Altair line stage.
To create the Virgo preamplifier, our "dream team" of the world's best audio engineers and industrial designers borrowed heavily from the Altair, Constellation Audio's state-of-the-art Reference series line stage. Although the Virgo's design is more economical to manufacture, its fundamental circuit topology is the same?and its sound is as arresting as one might expect from such revolutionary technological concepts.
Our original concept for the Performance Series Virgo preamplifier was to implement the same revolutionary circuit topology of our acclaimed Reference Series Altair preamp in a more cost-effective chassis. Through a substantial power supply upgrade, Virgo II now moves the Performance Series one step closer to the Reference Series.
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.
