Audia Flight Amplifiers

FL THREE S

Audia Flight Three S Integrated Amplifier

Over 20 years of experience designing cutting edge, high performance audio equipment has gone into our Audia Flight Three S Integrated Amplifier.

The result is, even by our high standards, an incredible multi-faceted component! Using the experience with our Classic and Strumento Series, every detail,

however minute, has been carefully thought through for the discriminating audio enthusiast and music lover. And, yet, the Flight Three S offers an exceptionally good value and, like all Audia Flight products, it is made entirely in Italy.

Starting with its elegant Italian exterior, the Flight Three S has solidly built casework with a thick aluminum (10mm) front panel, positive-action metal pushbutton selectors, and a nicely-weighted pleasing to the touch aluminum volume knob, all expertly crafted and finely finished.

In your hand you’ll also find a compact, ergonomic remote control hewn from solid aluminum. A large, blue OLED display will keep your eyes informed about the input choice (each input can be named as you choose) and other feature selections as you engage them.

OPTIONAL BOARDS (can be retrofitted):
phono MC/MM (replaces analog Input 1); USB 24bit 192KHz DAC (becomes Input 6)
Note:

The USB input has been insulated by an ADuM (from Analog Devices) to prevent any noise from the computer.
When the USB is used together with a player application such as FooBar or WinAmp, the user can transfer stream music files to internal converter at 192kHz/24bits maximum frequency/resolution while avoiding undesired PC or MAC audio mixer data processing during the data transfer from hard disk to interface.

STRUMENTO n° 8

STRUMENTO N°8 Mono-block Power Amplifier

After completing the long development process for the original Strumento N°4 Stereo Power Amplifier we next sought to redefine the mono-block power amplifier state of the art. As in its single chassis stereo sibling, the Strumento N°8 is a nearly perfect power amplifier that exhibits incredible response speeds (bandwidth greater than 1MHz), massive output power (up to 2000 Watts), and thanks to its status as a mono-block amplifier unlimited speaker driving/control capability. With the advantage of using a single amplifier for each channel, a pair of Strumento N°8 Mono-block Power Amplifiers are able
to surpass the performance of the incredible Strumento N°4 mk2 Stereo Power Amplifier.
With a mono-block power amplifier in mind we’ve used our trained human ears to aide us with circuit refinements (such small, but critical changes include the value of resistors and capacitors). This effort has allowed us to more closely achieve our goal of sonic perfection with the Strumento N°8, much like a luthier uses years of experience, craftsmanship, and keen ear to find the perfect tonal character and emotional response for their instruments.

STRUMENTO n° 4

STRUMENTO N°4 mk2 Stereo Power Amplifier

The Strumento N°4 mk2 Stereo Power Amplifier is a close to perfection state of the art two channel power amplifier that exhibits incredible response speeds (bandwidth greater than 1MHz), high output power (up to 900 Watts), and nearly unlimited speaker driving/control capability.

For the mk2 version we’ve used our experience in designing its sibling the Strumento N° 8 Mono-block Power Amplifier as well as our trained human ears to aide us to further refine the original Strumento N°4 circuit (such small, but critical changes include the value of resistors and capacitors).

This effort has allowed us to more closely achieve our goal of sonic perfection with the Strumento N°4 mk2, much like a luthier uses years of experience, craftsmanship, and keen ear to find the perfect tonal character and emotional response for their instruments.

The Strumento N°4 mk2’s chassis begins its life as an ultra high grade, bespoke aluminum cast. After the CNC finishing work is completed, every part is then closely inspected and “mirror polished” by hand. Some critical areas are further finished by hand, with shot peening and anodization completing the beautiful metal work. The final touch is an elegant silk-screening process.

FLS4

FLS4 Stereo Power Amplifier

The Audia Flight FLS4 Stereo Power Amplifier is an incredible stereo power amplifier with high response speed (bandwidth more than 0,7MHz), high power (up to 700 Watts), and nearly unlimited speaker driving/control capability. Like the Strumento Series we’ve used our trained human ears to aide us in the FLS 4’s design process. This effort has allowed us to produce an amplifier that more closely achieves our goal of sonic perfection, much like a luthier uses years of experience, craftsmanship, and keen ear to find the perfect tonal character and emotional response for their instruments.

Like its Strumento brethren the FLS4’s chassis begins its life as an ultra high grade, bespoke aluminum cast.
