Absolute Sound Product of the Year Award, January 2015

“After I had finished auditioning the Constellation Audio Inspiration Preamp 1.0 and Mono 1.0, I returned to the $55k Soulution 725 pre and $165k 701 monoblocs. One would think the juxtaposition would only highlight the limitations of the 1/8th the price Inspiration pair. Instead the comparison threw into sharp relief just how extraordinary the Inspiration electronics are... They bring a level of transparency, resolution, refinement, and soundstaging to this price segment once reserved for much more expensive electronics.
