The FLS 9 is High End Italian brand,Audia Flight’s, latest integrated amplifier. It shares with FLS 1 model the same fully balanced preamplifier stage boards.

The FLS 9 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 an extra thick copper layer, and a 1000 W shielded audio toroidal transformer.

Italian Design

The FLS 9 is also suitable for less efficient, impedance critical (down to 2 ohm) loudspeaker systems. The aluminium chassis, with engraved “Audia Flight” logo on top cover, and the solid aluminium milled remote control, are brushed and anodized. It possible to install two optional cards, plug and play, in separate externally accessible slots.

Options
