Stunning and Fully Balanced Audia Flight FLS 9 Integrated Amp, Dual Mono, Solid State Amplifier
At True Audiophile
After running this through the True Audiophile process, Impression are surprise to say the least. Beautiful bloom and an excellent grip on the music. Plenty of power to run even 87dB speakers. Well the demo unit passed the magic 100 hours. Our reviewer was completely stunned. When he researched the reviews they were so eerily familiar to our TA Tester conclusions that it was almost like they plagiarized his words. Hands down a no-brainer.
From our reviewer: This amp is a treat. It has genuinely outstanding sonic qualities including great overall control and an iron grip on bass. I hear terrific detail from bottom to top with zero hardness or etched quality. It’s a powerful but organic sounding amp with lovely tube-like harmonic richness. The excellent build quality and additional features like phono stage and DAC make it a crazy good value in my opinion. -- TA
The FLS 9 is Audia Flights latest creation in hi-end integrated amplifiers and is the best choice for a mid priced hi-end integrated amplifier.
It shares with FLS 1 model same fully balanced preamplifier stage boards. Power channels use 12 highly selected power devices, 8 power supply circuits with extra low impedance and very low noise, high quality capacitors (120.000 uF), special printed boards with extra thick copper layer, 1000 W shielded audio toroidal transformer. The150 Wrms (8 ohm) output power follows the acclaimed Audia tradition of speed, power, driving capability and control ability. The FLS 9 is also suitable for less efficient, impedance critical (down to 2 ohm) loudspeaker systems. The aluminum chassis, with engraved “Audia Flight” logo on top cover, and solid aluminum milled remote control are brushed and anodized. It possible to install two optional cards, plug and play, very easy to install in separate slots externally accessible.
The elegant chassis is full brushed aluminum with engraved logo on top cover, the large display is OLED blue. Four special composite pads with NBR rubber spheres ensure the best vibration control. An aluminum brushed and anodized remote control is also supplied as standard.
FLS 9 is available in silver and black finish.
There is the possibility to install two optional cards, plug and play, so very easy to install.
