Product Description

Audiolab 6000A Integrated Amplifier is designed to meet all the requirements of the modern HiFi system. The 6000A has a built-in DAC, equipped with both digital and analogue inputs, a headphone amp, phono stage and has wireless connectivity via Bluetooth.

Audiolab 6000A vs 8300A

Audiolab’s 6000A differs from 8300A as it doesn’t require an external DAC for direct connection to digital sources, it uses it’s own high quality built in DAC. Offer than this it still sports the same sleek design characteristics.

Digital Circuitry

The digital circuitry in Audiolab’s 6000A delivers the same high quality performance of what you might find in a standalone DAC unit. It uses the ES9018 Sabre32 Reference chip, which benefits from ESS technology's 32-bit HyperStream architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator to accomplish ultra-low noise.

Connect to Your Digital Devices

Twin optical and coaxial inputs give you the ability to connect the 6000A amp to a TV, games console or DVD/Blu-ray player. When your digital devices are hooked up to the 6000A you can be sure to enjoy clarity and detail in your music.

Bluetooth Connectivity

Bluetooth technology is included to allow for a quick and easy connection to your smartphone, tablet or laptop so you can stream music from streaming services like Tidal, Spotify, and Apple Music.

Analogue Circuitry

The 6000A uses a Class A/B discrete power amp that delivers 50w into 8 ohms per channel. It uses a complimentary feedback topology to ensure greater linearity and thermal stability and a 200VA toroidal transformer to provide greater handling abilities without losing dynamic range.

Vinyl Playback

A pre-amp section with a Phono MM input is featured to allow you to connect your turntable. Your records can be heard with a beautiful balance that showcases the true warmth and depth of your vinyl.

Quality Headphone Amplification

Audiolab's 6000A has a dedicated headphone amp that can drive even the most demanding headphones. It uses a current-feedback circuitry, a high gain bandwidth and high slew rates to deliver a detailed and dynamic performance.

Press Reviews

  • 'A hugely capable stereo amplifier that’s good enough to worry the best in class… Clear, refined and articulate sound, big, spacious presentation, good spread of features.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2018)

  • 'Voices cut through with emotion and nuance. The edges of each note are crisp and punctual. Piano notes land with satisfying weight, bass is pulled taut, and strings are bowed with conviction – it’s a wonderfully confident performance.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2018)
  • '...The 6000A isn’t all about refinement. It keeps the momentum going at a snappy pace – something amps twice the price don’t always manage. The presentation is large and airy giving instruments plenty of space to flaunt their wares.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2018)
  • 'The Audiolab’s clean, crisp presentation comes through across the analogue and digital inputs alike. The DAC inside the 6000A is of a good standard, and it’s impressive to hear such a capable and composed sound at this price… Being able to stream songs in a flash is a bonus for a product of this kind. There’s the expected drop in quality when using Bluetooth, but the sonic character remains much the same.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2018)
  • ‘It will take a lot to knock the all-analogue Regia Brio off its perch, but we can see plenty of appeal in the Audiolab’s refined presentation and range of digital features. With both amplifiers costing £599, anyone in the market for a new stereo amplifier is now spoilt for choice. The Audiolab 6000A is an excellent amplifier that takes the fight to a formidable class leader.’ (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2018)

    Bought this amplifier 6 months ago, and it performs wonderfully. The sound is awesome, providing a wide soundstage. The phono stage is ok ( an external performs better obviously), the headphone amp and day perform admirably. Service from audio affair was brilliant....
