Constellation Audio

Constellation Audio was showing and rightfully showing off their beautifully made Cygnus Digital file player / DAC ($20,000). The Cygnus is made right here in the USA including that machined aluminium chassis and its refreshing to see the art of craft emanating from these shores (California to be precise). The Cygnus supports FLAC, WAV, and AIFF file formats and I know that's not a long list but my guess is they hit the high rez highlights. Inputs include 1 AES/EBU, 2 RCA S/PDIF, 2 Toslink, and 1 USB (optional) while on the other end there are RCA and XLR stereo analog audio outputs.

The Cygnus also sports a 432 x 230-pixel front screen, fully balanced digital and analog circuitry, two 32/192 DACs per channel and a separate and equally lovely power supply.

Without a doubt.
