Constellation Audio, the renowned luxury goods manufacturer of high performance solid-state electronics, is pleased to announce the introduction of the new Revelation Series of components at CES 2017. CEO Dr. Murali Murugasu challenged his dream team of designers and engineers to develop a new series of Constellation Audio components that could deliver the essence of our renowned Performance Series. The results are truly a Revelation.
The Revelation Series bridges a gap in the Constellation Audio product hierarchy. Building on the Inspiration tradition and offering improved performance due to the use of carefully selected parts, the Revelation Series is a logical step up from Inspiration. Its distinctively Constellation casework design draws upon the heritage of the Reference Series and extends the foundation first used in Inspiration.
Products in the Revelation Series include the new Pictor preamplifier (with optional DC Filter), Taurus Stereo and Taurus Mono amplifiers, and the Andromeda phono stage which will follow shortly. These core products are exemplary of the Constellation Audio brand. While their distinct heritage is obvious, their intrinsic performance makes them unique. Together they represent a new benchmark for Constellation Audio, creating a line which is at once strong and balanced.
The line will consist of three basic models: preamplifier, amplifier(s), and a phono stage.
- With a separate power supply and optional DC Filter to even further lower the noise floor, the Revelation Pictor is an ideal line stage. In addition to remote control operation of a full complement of inputs, the Pictor has a home theater bypass that can be used on any input and is equipped with an RS232 port for easy integration into an automated control system.
- Like all Constellation Audio amplifiers, the Revelation Series amplifiers are available in either stereo or mono configuration. Although the power is increased by only 50 Watts compared to the Inspiration Series amplifiers, they have double the transformers as the Inspiration Series amplifiers as well as an additional bank of power output capacitors. The result is an amplifier design that has control, finesses, and raw power when needed.
- The Andromeda shares the aesthetics and separate power supply of the Pictor and much of the same performance and technology as the award-winning Perseus.
Constellation Audio will be displaying the new Revelation Series components in The Venetian, Suite 30-334.
