Constellation Audio is comprised of the brightest minds in the industry. The products they produce set standards for others to follow. The Altair is their flagship achievement, refined based on user feedback resulting in the Mark II.
Performance factors are no longer comparable to other premium products since it no longer about which one is better. At this level its simply if you prefer one aspect of near perfection to another. Musicality and dynamics are delivered with absolute precision.
The chassis is fully balanced with a focus on extreme mechanical and electromagnetic isolation. Every aspect of this preamplifiers design was put under the design teams critical eyes and nothing was taken for granted.
This is a one owner piece and was extremely well cared for. No evidence of smoke or abuse and it includes everything it came with when new including the original road case and packing. Looks and performs like new.
