constellation audio: centaur / stereo power amplifier


The Centaur brings the revolutionary amplification concepts pioneered in the Hercules amplifier to a more modest and practical form factor. Unlike any other stereo amplifier ever created, it produces immense power yet can also reproduce the same sonic delicacy and detail for which small single-ended amplifiers are revered.

Why does the Centaur sound like a single-ended amplifier? Because it is a single-ended amplifier. Most high-powered amps are built by bulking up smaller designs with more transistors. Many audiophiles feel that with these amps, finesse is lost as muscle is added. This is why Constellation Audio’s “dream team” of engineers built the Centaur in a modular fashion from multiple smaller amplifiers. They built the best-sounding 125-watt single-ended amplifier module they could, then combined several of them to create a 250-watt-per-channel stereo design.
