    Constellation arrived and breaking in

    After eight years of mostly tube gear I was elated to add Constellation Audio and it has made a beautiful addition to my line up. Breaking in the Centaur amplifier and Virgo II preamp plus getting ready to add a red Magico S5 this weekend. It will be wired by an entire Odin loom and a dCS source. Already heard the Magico S1 and was very impressed with it's performance. Things are shaping up to be a very interesting March, will report back and add some pics of the Magico later this week. Here is a pic of the Constellation gear on a silver HRS rack, coincidentally Mike from HRS had a hand in their design.

    Looks like it's the same as Dr. L John.

    He has the mono's Dewey and the Altair preamp, the good Dr.L goes large all the time as you know.

    We should get Dr L on this forum....I thoroughly enjoyed talking to him on the phone a few weeks ago. He has golden ears and a long lineage of great audio acquisitions. A true gentleman too.

    As much as I love tubes, not fiddling with them is a wonderful thing!
