A new sound system has been unveiled by Constellation Audio in the form of the Leo, which looks more like a next generation games console than a sound system equipped with a pair of 6.5-inch woofers. The woofers are positioned within the case in an opposed parallel configuration to cancel out vibrations. Each is powered by a dedicated twin 140-Watt Class D amplifiers, while the two 2.5-inch midrange drivers and dual 0.75-inch tweeters each have their own 70-Watt amps for a total of 560 Watts of power.
Other features of the Leo include a multichannel DSP that optimises the sound quality, tailoring it to whatever source is playing, whether it be AirPlay, Chromecast, Bluetooth, optical digital, Ethernet, or the built-in MC/MM phono stage. “No existing product category seems adequate to contain Leo. Leo embodies the same no-compromise spirit that inspired our original Reference Series components—hailed by many experts as the finest ever created—yet it fits into environments that could never accommodate a traditional audio system. Leo blends many approaches to audio: ultra-modern digital audio processing and amplification technologies, combined with traditional design philosophies and techniques refined through decades of experience.”

Unfortunately, no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet, but as soon as information comes to light, we will keep you updated as always. Expect more information to be made available towards the end of 2018. “To describe Leo in concrete terms, it is a tri-amplified stereo sound system that delivers inspiring performance from any source, be it a moving-coil phono cartridge, a networked computer, an Internet radio station, a high-end music streamer, a CD player or even a smartphone”Filed Under: Concepts & Design, Top News
