Constellation Audio
Constellation Audio was founded on the premise that one cannot create something extraordinary through slavish adherence to established methods. When tradition is the best path. When new technology is necessary to achieve the performance they wanted, they invented it. When they found a radical circuit topology that delivered a substantial advance in sound quality, they used itConstellation Audio sought out the greatest names in audio engineering and industrial design, the creative minds behind many of history's greatest audio products. Audiophiles will recognize the names of audio engineers such as John Curl, Bascom King, Peter Madnick, and Demian Martin. They will also recognize the work of industrial designer Neal Feay, who is responsible for the look and feel of many of the highend audio industry's most distinctive products.

Constellation Audio Performance Series Centaur II Mono Power Amplifier
Constellation Audio Performance Series Centaur II Mono Power Amplifier
New power supply with 3 times the capacitance. Higher bias current for extended Class A operation. 250 watts per channel into 8 ohms, 800 into 2 ohms. Fully discrete balanced bridged circuitry for extraordinary fidelity. Larger, deep-fin heat sink for efficient cooling and outstanding reliability

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.

Constellation Audio Reference Series - Hercules II Mono
Constellation Audio Reference Series - Hercules II Mono
1,000 watts of power into 8 ohms:
With 1 kilowatt of rated power into 8 ohms (and even that is a conservative number), the Hercules II monoblock has more than enough power for any speaker, any space and any listening taste. It handles low-impedance speakers with ease, delivering 1.5 kW into 4 ohms and an incredible 2 kW into 2 ohms.

Balanced drive design for superior musicality:
By using only N-type output transistors, instead of half N-type and half P-type as in other amplifiers, Hercules II achieves an essentially perfect balance between the positive and halves of the audio signal. As in a single-ended amplifier, the entirety of the audio signal passes through exactly the same type of output device.

Constellation Audio Reference Series - Altair II Preamplifier
Constellation Audio Reference Series - Altair II Preamplifier
Line Stage Gain Module:
We build the Line Stage Gain Module’s balanced circuit from two mirror-imaged amplifiers, one for the positive half of the signal and the other for the negative half. Through the use of hand-matched, ultra-low-noise FETs and servo circuits, our engineers have achieved an essentially perfect balance between the positive and negative halves of the audio signal.

Fully balanced circuitry:

Constellation Audio Performance Series - Centaur Mono Power Amp
Constellation Audio Performance Series - Centaur Mono Power Amp
500 watts per channel into 8 ohms:
The Centaur Mono owner need never worry about power, no matter what speakers are used. The power output is sufficient to drive any speaker, of any impedance or sensitivity, with enough headroom to practically eliminate the possibility of audible distortion from the amplifier.

Unique modular design:
The Centaur Mono gets its power not from bulking up a smaller design as most big amplifiers do, but by combining multiple 125-watt modules. Thus, it delivers the musicality of a small amp with no concerns about dynamics or distortion.

Constellation Audio Performance Series - Cygnus Dac
Constellation Audio Performance Series - Cygnus Dac
USB input for digital file playback:
The Cygnus plays digital music files stored on any USB hard drive or thumb drive. FLAC, WAV and AIFF files are supported.

Legacy digital inputs:
Five inputs are provided to connect digital source devices such as CD players and satellite radios.

Optional USB computer input:
Interfaces the Cygnus directly with a computer for playback of files stored on the computer’s hard drive.

Constellation Audio Performance Series - Perseus Phono Preamplifier
Constellation Audio Performance Series - Perseus Phono Preamplifier
Fully complementary circuitry:
The Perseus's balanced audio circuitry is essentially two mirror-imaged preamp circuits, one to amplify the positive half of the audio signal, the other to amplify the negative half. The fully balanced design cancels the effects of interference-an important capability considering the low level of the signals inside a phono preamp-and also increases slew rate and frequency response.

Constellation Audio Performance Series - Argo Integrated Amplifier
Constellation Audio Performance Series - Argo Integrated Amplifier
Line Stage Gain Module:
The Argo employs the same core preamplification circuit found in all other Constellation Audio products: our Line Stage Gain Module, which employs servo circuits and hand-selected field-effect transistors (FETs) to achieve an essentially perfect balance between the positive and negative halves of the audio signal. In the Argo, this signal travels directly into the power amplifier circuitry with no additional gain stage needed, just as in a system employing our separate amps and preamps. The result is musicality that is truly incredible not only for an integrated amplifier, but for any audio component.

Constellation Audio - Inspiration Series - Stereo 1.0 Power Amplifier
Constellation Audio - Inspiration Series - Stereo 1.0 Power Amplifier
200 watts per channel into 8 ohms:
With power output conservatively rated at 0.2% total harmonic distortion plus noise, doubling to 400 watts into 4 ohms, the Inspiration STEREO 1.0 has enough power to drive practically any speaker to maximum volume without audible distortion.

Balanced bridged design from Hercules and Centaur:
The Inspiration STEREO 1.0 uses a modular, fully balanced design with only N-type output transistors, instead of half N-type and half P-type as found in almost all other solid-state amplifiers. Thus, the positive and negative halves of the audio signal are maintained in ideal balance and the subtlest of musical details are preserved.

Constellation Audio - Inspiration Series - Preamp 1.0
Constellation Audio - Inspiration Series -  Preamp 1.0
Triple-transformer power supply:
The design of the power supply in the Inspiration borrows heavily from the Altair II and Virgo II. We chose R-core transformers to power the audio circuits because of their inherently low noise and low radiated magnetic energy -- and because they worked so well in our previous designs. There are separate R-core transformers for left and right channels. A conventional EI transformer powers the control circuits, so the sensitive audio circuits are well-isolated from the noise of the control circuits.

Constellation Audio Inspiration Series Integrated 1.0
Constellation Audio Inspiration Series Integrated 1.0
Constellation Audio, manufacturer of world-class solid-state electronics, is pleased to announce the debut of the Constellation Audio Inspiration 1.0 INTEGRATED Amplifier at CES 2015. As the newest member of Constellation Audio’s most affordable Inspiration Series, the Constellation Audio INTEGRATED 1.0 joins its preamplifier and amplifier line-mates in delivering the performance that is expected from Constellation Audio at a more affordable price. With its ability to deliver 100 wpc into 8 Ohms (and twice that into 4), a full array of balanced and single-ended inputs and outputs, and a preamplifier output, the Constellation Audio Inspiration 1.0 INTEGRATED Amplifier is destined to become the value leader in its category.
