Constellation Audio CEO Dr. Murali Murugasu observes, “The new Centaur II 500 Stereo is likely the ideal amplifier for those systems where power is a desire or a necessity. When coupled with a great preamplifier such as the Virgo III, the Centaur II 500 Stereo produces bass, dynamics, and musical realism that is unlike that of any other combination I have ever heard – short of the Altair II and Hercules II. All of the music is there; nothing is added, sacrificed, or compromised.”

The Centaur II 500 Stereo takes the performance of the Centaur II Stereo to the next level. The Centaur II Stereo incorporated a new capacitor board derived from the

Hercules II which tripled the power supply capacitance of the Centaur II compared to the original Centaur while maintaining the same power output. Now, we have utilized one of the massive power transformers used in the Hercules to double the output power from 250 to 500 Watts per channel. The additional power results in palpably better bass at all listening levels. Dynamics, both macro and micro, are also significantly improved. And like a big automobile engine, there is plenty of power there on demand when the music or the mood calls for it.
