Review:
"The Audia Flight Phono combined pitch-black backgrounds and world-class dynamic presentation with a clean, ultrafast top end and a taut, well-extended bottom end." Stereophile Class A Recommended Component

"...nothing but sonic pleasure... the Flight Phono produced music out of what subjectively sounded like an even blacker backdrop, and probably partly because of that, its soundstage presentation was among the most transparent, deep, and three-dimensional I've heard from any phono stage."
MF - Stereophile

A separate power supply, dedicated input preamplifier boards, high gain (74dB maximum) and low noise are only a few of its characteristics.


The separate power supply was chosen to improve the shield of the preamp and to reduce the vibrations and resonance from the transformers to zero.

 

Power supply
The Audia Flight Phono Preamp's power supply is separate from the preamp chassis. A 50VA toroidal transformer supplies the analogue stages. On it is placed the first power supply (+/- 38V).
Inside the separate power supply there is a 15VA toroidal transformer as well, to supply the relays and logic control. Previous user selections are stored in memory. To receive the commands from the pushbutton of the preamp chassis without electrical connections, several opto-isolators are used.

There is also a low noise MOSFET power supply (+/-28V) on the preamp chassis for the second gain stage and another power supply for the first gain stage (+/- 15V). Thus, there are six power supplies in total!

 

Preamp
The Audia Flight Phono Preamp is based on Audia Flight's current feedback philosophy. The MC and MM input preamp boards are different, because MC and MM cartridges have different electrical characteristics. The MC preamp board is a transistor input preamp with 64 dB of gain. The MM preamp board is a differential transistor input stage with 40dB of gain. Both have low noise and low offset output. On both input boards, the impedance selectors are close to the input stage and are made by professional gold jumpers. Custom resistors can also be used for precise cartridge matching from the rear panel.

After the first gain stage is the input selector, which is made with gold contact relays. Following this is the RIAA filter in passive configuration. It is made with 1% polypropylene and polystyrene capacitors. In this position, it's possible to select a subsonic IEC filter as well.

The second gain output stage, which is completely redesigned, has improved speed and signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio. The second gain stage is switchable from 24 dB to 34 dB and has a balanced XLR output.

A mono selector is an important element in achieving the best sound while using a stereo cartridge to play a mono record. The Audia Flight Preamp's mono selector sums the left and right channels together in the same manner as a mono cartridge would, which provides improved sonic performance.

The Preamp board features DC offset protection; if there is an offset voltage, this feature will protect the unit and all others connected to it.

I can vouch for the Audia Flight phono pre-amp. It is the best phono pre-amp I've ever owned. Only sold when I exited vinyl.

 

Good luck with the sale!

  • Doctor Faustus changed the title to Withdrawn: Audia Flight Phono Preamplifier

I had one of these and it was the best phono stage I owned. Only sold it to fund another purchase. However, another one for me is on the cards for the future.

      Item Condition: Stellar Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Brisbane State: QLD Payment Method: PayPal, EFT, Cash on pickup Reason for selling: Too many amps Further information: 
      I bought these wonderful class D amps new in sealed boxes from a fellow SNA member in August 2020. 
      At about the same time, I couldn’t resist buying a class AB amp at a good price. 
      I spent a month comparing the amps. 
      I would be equally happy with both, but alas I cannot keep both. 
      I found the M700 to have huge reserves of power to effortlessly drive my magnepans with a full rich and detailed sound. They held a tight grip over the bass and produced a smooth midrange bloom and clear highs.  They held their own against the AB amp in all areas and exceeded in some areas.  
       
      The amps were purchased from a local dealer and come with balance of the 2 year warranty - over 18 months remaining.  
       
      The amps were plugged in by me for a month , so are as close to new as you’d expect. 
       
      I have the original boxes and can arrange interstate postage.

      Item Condition: Very good but one tweeter in a CD10 is not working Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Kenmore, Brisbane State: QLD Payment Method: Cash, EFT, PayPal Reason for selling: Surplus now Further information: I’ve decided to sell my Canton CD-20 II centre speaker and 4 matching CD-10 II satellite speakers. 
       
      these are beautifully made and very solid/weighty for their size. The enclosures are extruded and anodized aluminum and the drivers are all alloy cones/domes. 
       
      They sound terrific (smooth and detailed) but do really require a quality subwoofer, of course, to take care of midbass and bass duties. 
       
      They’re in very good cosmetic condition with little to no signs of use. Please note however, the tweeter in one of the CD-10s doesn’t appear to be working. I only noticed this when looking to use a couple in the garage a few years ago. I never noticed it when it was used in rear stage duties on a home theatre system I used to have. It could be an easy fix/replacement but I’ve never bothered tbh. 
       
      these also come with 5 wall brackets, and 1 pair of matching Canton CD Series stands (which I rattle-can sprayed black)
       
      they come from a clean, smoke-free home.

      Item Condition: Varied Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Thornbury State: VIC Payment Method: Cash, EFT Reason for selling: No vinyl rig Further information:
      This is the final relist before I decide what to do with the remainders. Please let me know if there's anything you'd fancy. Thank you to all that have purchased so far.
      View the collection on Discogs - https://www.discogs.com/user/t.wak/collection?header=1  
      **Please PM me if you have interest in any individuals
      Since selling my vinyl setup these have remained on the shelf dreaming of one day being played again - but I don't see another turntable in my immediate future so I'd rather the space and let someone else spin them up.
      Any released within the last 8 years were mostly bought new by myself and remain in great condition, some are never played and others maybe a maximum of 10 times. The older releases (70s-80s) are in rough shape and may not be in the best condition.

      Price is based on the Discogs median price - I will entertain offers for the complete collection but if you find any individuals that tickle your fancy please PM me with the titles and I will reply with a price.
      I will happily deliver these within Victoria if sold complete. Can ship smaller numbers internationally and interstate. Free hand delivery in Melbourne. Donation to Stereonet a given.
      Any questions please ask
