With its innovative circuitry and incomparable build quality, Altair II achieves something no other preamp can: the musicality of classic tube preamps with precision and dynamics matched by no other solid-state preamp.
The Hercules II Stereo uses exactly the same circuit as the Hercules II Mono and the original Hercules. The same circuit that inspired a leading reviewer to describe our original Hercules amplifier and Altair preamp as “the most transparent, detailed, and cleanest electronics I’ve heard”.
The performance of the Hercules II Mono is not affected by the speaker, nor by the program material, nor by the listening volume. It delivers the same musical intimacy and emotion with any speaker, with any music, at any volume.
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).
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.
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.
As appealing as the Perseus’s design may sound in prose, its quality can be appreciated only when you hear it. We can’t say it’s the world’s best phono preamp-that would be the Orion-but we think it’s a clear second-best.
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.
With 500 watts per channel into 8 ohms, doubling to 1,000 watts per channel into 4 ohms, Centaur II 500 commands complete control of any speaker, allowing every speaker it is used with to achieve its best, most musical performance.
For simpler systems, Pictor is the perfect choice: simplicity and sound quality distilled into a single product.
Andromeda is the ideal solution for those with simpler vinyl playback setups using only couple of tonearms or turntables.
Taurus is the ideal way to get Constellation performance and power into systems where, for whatever reason, a foot-high power amplifier won’t quite fit.
The Inspiration MONO 1.0 amplifier easily delivers 400 watts per channel into 8 ohms, doubling to 800 into 4 ohms. This is power enough to produce incredible, concert-hall dynamics with any speaker. Yet it is the size of a standard audio amplifier and weighs just 55 pounds.
Our original goal when we founded Constellation Audio was to apply the talents of our “dream team” of top engineers and designers to creating the finest components the audio world has ever seen. According to many noted experts, we’ve done just that.
It’s remarkable how much of the technology from the Altair II and Performance series Virgo II preamplifiers is preserved in the Inspiration PREAMP 1.0. The core audio circuits are the same. The power supply retains its triple-transformer design.
The Constellation Audio Inspiration INTEGRATED 1.0 is the newest member of Constellation Audio’s most affordable Inspiration Series, and joins its preamplifier and amplifier line-mates in delivering the performance that is expected from Constellation Audio at a more affordable price.
