Audia Flight FLS1

Italy's Audio Flight was new to me as was their FLS1 Pre/DAC (€4500). The DAC part runs on the ESS 9018 offering up to 32/384 and DSD256 playback. Digital inputs include 1x Toslink, 1x AES/EBU, 2x S/PDIF, and 1x USB in additional to 4 analog inputs (2x RCA, 2x XLR). There's also a headphone amp and an optional phono board for you vinyl lovers (I know you're out there).
