Audia Flight initially announced the FLS1 concept about three years ago but then spent three years more before finally introducing the FLS1. It was crucial for Audia Flight team the experience made with the Strumento n.1 mk2 worldwide awarded preamplifier.

Audia Flight's FLS1 was conceived to address the growing demand for a combined, DAC and preamplifier component without compromise.

Many of todays current DAC/ preamplifiers provide adequate digital performance but, all too often, compromise the best possible preamplifier performance and flexibility by using digital domain volume control and line stage functions. The FLS1 is a true Class A/B analog based preamplifier, combining high performance analog line stage performance with reference design volume control, while providing true reference 32 bit, 192KHz digital conversion capability and entirely separate USB supported DSD 5.6 file, 32 bit, 384 KHz capability.

The FLS1 is an unrivalled preamplifier in its category where speed, driving capability and control ability are elements close to perfection. 

Also a true Headphone power amplifier using Audia Flight technology ensure to your headphone a perfect and relaxed music listening. The output power is 12Wrms on 8 ohm! So it is able to drive any kind of headphone with perfect control and high current. Also two sets of gain can be chosen.

FLS1 is full balance preamplifier with an high-end volume control in dual mono configuration (each channel is assembled on separate print board), XLR and RCA outputs, REC RCA (fix level) output, three RCA inputs, two XLR inputs. 

The FLS1 is powered by three toroidal transformers close into a metal shield, with very low noise power supplies.

All inputs can be activated or deactivated, the gain can be adjusted (+/- 6dB), all name inputs can be renamed.

The FLS1 is the perfect device to “bring” musical signal with the best precision, energy and speed (with a bandwidth more than 500KHz) from sources to your amplifier.

Full brushed aluminium chassis, engraved “Audia Flight” logo on top cover, one aluminium remote control brushed and anodised, OLED blue display are Hi-END details.

There is the option to install two optional plug and play module cards, that are easy to install as follows:
