Fully Balanced and Weighing More than 25 kg

"Small" Integrated Amplifier FLS 9 from Audia Flight

In developing the new FLS 9 integrated amplifier, Audia Flight set itself the goal of coming as close as possible to models like the FLS 1 or FLS 4 in terms of sound quality – at a significantly lower price.

The FLS 9 is fully balanced, has slots for phono, DAC, RCA or XLR boards as well as a balanced preamp output and uses a transimpedance circuit with local current feedback.

The power supply unit of the FLS 9 consists of a shielded toroidal transformer with 1,000 watts. It feeds a capacitor bank with 120,000 μF storage capacity and eight analog circuits. An additional transformer provides circuitry for the display, processor and LEDs, so that their interference does not disturb the signals of the music. Twelve transistors belong to each channel, which are mirror-balanced. The headphone output was adopted from the FLS 10.

The accessories include an aluminum remote that allows volume control in 0.5 dB steps. The display of the FLS 9 is dimmable. The individual inputs in the amplifier's menu can be named differently, deactivated or switched so that the FLS 9 can be integrated as a power amplifier in a home theater.

Weighing 25.5 kilos, the FLS 9 is available immediately* and costs around €5,950 MSRP*.
