Audiolab 8300A Integrated Amplifier

While striving to achieve the most supreme sound quality, each stage of Audiolab product development is focused on usability. In particular with the Audiolab 8300A Integrated Amplifier, ensuring simple yet in-depth control, veteran amp designer, Jan Ertner build the amplifier functionality around the new display.

This means users can easily find their way around the versatile configurations the amplifier offers, even while being much more advanced than its predecessors. The amplifier can behave as an integrated amplifier, power amplifier, pre-amplifier and a split pre-amplifier – easily paired with a multitude of hi-fi systems.

The 8300A works as coherently inside as it does on the outside – By taking a completely new approach to the layout, a dual mono structure means inter-channel interference is minimised. Crucial components processing audio and the power supply are completely separated as far as possible.

Our new technology – Active Current Delivery also ensures a completely clean sound up to the point of clipping, then its advanced microprocessor limits the output, which guarantees no audible distortion, even at its louder output of 75W RMS.

About Audiolab

Formed in the early 1980s by Philip Swift and Derek Scotland, Audiolab earned worldwide acclaim with the 8000A – an integrated stereo amplifier that became a classic ‘step-up’ from the budget models of the time.

During the ensuing years, the 8000A established itself as one of the most successful British amps ever produced, and was joined by a range of electronics including CD players, pre/power amps and an FM tuner. The brand switched hands in 1997, changing its name to TAG McLaren Audio; and it so was known until 2004 when Audiolab became part of the International Audio Group and returned to its original name.

In 2010 Audiolab began the introduction of its latest full-width 8200 Series components, combining the company’s original ethos of simple, well-constructed ergonomics and crisp, transparent sound with innovative, performance-led design concepts.

In 2011, the arrival of the M-DAC heralded a new, compact range called LAB Series, further expanded by the Q-DAC and M-PWR. Since the launch of the 8200 Series and LAB Series, Audiolab has won more major awards in UK hi-fi magazines than any other brand of high-performance audio electronics.
