First and foremost, the Audiolab 8200A Integrated Amplifier is a very well-built, fully-featured amplifier with bags of power, finesse and clarity. The Audiolab 8200A is an integrated amplifier with a rich heritage, building and improving on the successes and positives of the 8000A/8000S, adding mdoern design techniques to deliver unbeatable audio quality and offering 60W per channel. The 8200A is an update to the 8000S and earlier 8000A, but don't be fooled - this is far from a cosmetic update. Audiolab have completely revised the design to ensure the 8200A offers audio quality as close as possible to the 8200Q with 8200P or 8200M pre/power combos.
The 8200A offers many of the features of the 8200Q pre amplifier, including 6 inputs, 6 record loop inputs, dedicated headphone amplifier and a full remote control. In addition, it offers a powerful 60W per channel, enough to power the majority of bookshelf and floorstanding speakers that will match well with this amplifier.
From our initial listening tests, it's quite clear Audiolab have created a very special amplifier indeed, and will be an ideal integrated solution for many systems. It is also a perfect match for the Audiolab M-DAC, Q-DAC, 8200CD, 8200CDQ or for any other music sources, including CD players, tuners, PC/laptop audio (with or without a DAC), an iPod dock or mp3 connection and more.

"Detailed sound with good extension and unusually assured midrange...this amp is just as capable of giving musical pleasure as its predecessor [the Audiolab 8000A or Audiolab 8000S]" (Hi-Fi Choice magazine)
"...the 8200A holds its own. it offers good, solid bass, well extended treble, lively dynamics, detail and all that sort of stuff and while it may not offer them in the sort of style you'd expect of £10000-worth of pre/power separates, it follows the general 21st-century trend of coming uncomfortably close" (Hi-Fi Choice magazine)
"The original Audiolab 8000A integrated amp was a landmark product when it was introduced in the early 1980s...it single-handedly established the Audiolab brand, and set new standards in build, features and sound quality at the time...there’s something reassuringly familiar about the new 8200A, too: It mirrors the original’s clean-cut functional appearance and retains a fair chunk of its electronic engineering principles...this is no retro reissue, though: it’s clearly a modern unit with the component quality and circuit refinements any top quality contender needs" (What Hi-Fi? magazine)
"In use, the 8200A has a bright sound that brims with detail; the words ‘clean and crisp’ keep coming to mind...and despite the conservative 60W per channel power rating, it manages to drive everything – from KEF’s Q300s to our reference ATC SCM 50s – to commendably high levels...you can add a wide, open soundstage and an impressive combination of speed and punch to the list of plus points, too" (What Hi-Fi? magazine)
