The integrated FLS 9 amplifier from the Italians Audia Flight was released last summer.
The preamp circuit of the FLS 9 is fully balanced (as with the FLS 1). The power supply circuit used 12 selected power elements, eight low-impedance and low-noise power circuits, 120,000 UF capacitors, printed circuit boards with a thickened copper layer, and a shielded toroidal transformer (1 kW).
The output power of the amplifier was 150W (8 ohms) per channel. If you believe the creators, the FLS 9 model is suitable even for “complex” speakers with a resistance of up to 2 ohms.
The amplifier provides for the installation of optional modules: MC/MM-phono corrector, board with two additional RCA line inputs, DAC board (asynchronous USB input with galvanic isolation, quality up to PCM 32 bit/768 kHz or DSD 128, five digital inputs with a resolution of 32 bit/192 kHz, upsampling up to 32 bit/768 kHz). A module for streaming music is also expected.
As for the appearance, the Audia Flight FLS 9 received an aluminum chassis with the Audia Flight logo engraved on the top cover. The remote control is made of solid aluminum with milling, brushing and anodizing. The model is available in two finishes: silver and black.
The price of the Audia Flight FLS 9 is about $7,600.
