More of the same but for less? – That would seem the design brief for Audia Flight's newest smaller integrated. The FLS9 [€5'950] packs 150/290wpc into 8/4Ω from a 1KW power trafo, 120'000μF of capacitance and 12 transistors per channel. There are option boards for phono and digital. There's a 0.5dB-stepped attenuator, a headfi port borrowed from the bigger FLS10 model and a full-metal remote. 25.5kg of weight suggest proper seriousness of purpose.
