Product Description

Audiolab 6000A Integrated Amplifier is a flexible amplifier designed to meet all the requirements of the modern system. It is truly versatile, equipped with both digital and analogue inputs, headphone amp, phono stage and wireless connectivity via Bluetooth.

Upgrade for the 8000A

The 6000A takes a fresh look at amplification whilst adopting some of the best qualities from the iconic 800A amplifier. Visually, you get the same sleek design with clean buttons and rotary controls on the front. A central LED display is much like its older analogue only brother's. But unlike it's sibling the 6000A sports a new skill; a high quality built in DAC for connecting to digital sources directly without the need for an external DAC. 25 years later, Audiolab amplifiers are still at the core of any premium audio system.

Re-developed by Jan Ertner

The 6000A's high-quality build and digital circuitry is the work of leading electronics designer Jan Eartner. He redeveloped the technologies found in the 8300A and implemented the new digital circuitry in order to achieve astounding sound for an achievable price point.

Digital Circuitry

Ensuring the digital circuitry delivers the same high quality performance that a standalone offers was paramount to the success of the 6000A. Audiolab utilises the ES9018 Sabre32 Reference chip for the 6000A's DAC, which benefits from the ESS technology's 32-bit HyperStream architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator to accomplish ultra-low noise and dynamic sound. The circuitry surrounding the DAC chips ensures the finest musical expression from the 6000A.

Connect to Your Digital Devices

The 6000A is the amplifier that provides for all your musical needs. With twin optical and coaxial inputs you can hook Audiolab's amplifier up to your TV, games console or DVD and Blu-ray players. Bluetooth technology incorporated allows for a quick and easy connection to your smartphone, tablet or laptops. This way you can stream your favourite music from popular streaming services like Spotify, Tidal, and Apple Music at the touch of a button. When your digital devices are hooked up to the 6000A you can be sure eot enjoy incredible amplification technology and stunning clarity and detail in your music.

Analogue Circuitry

Not only is this amplifier host to a multitude of digital connectivity options, it also features an exceptional analogue circuitry. The 6000A uses a Class A/B discrete power amplifier that delivers 50w into 8 ohms per channel. It uses Complimentary Feedback topology to ensure greater linearity and thermal stability and a 200VA toroidal trasnformer followed by 4x1500uF reservoir capacity gives the amp greater handling abilities whilst enabling a captivating dynamic range.

Vinyl Playback Covered

A simple pre-amplifier section with three line inputs and Phono MM inputs maintains the purity of the signal. You can connect your turntables and enjoy the low noise components from the 6000A, carefully constructed for your listening pleasure. Records are heard with a beautiful balance that showcases the warmth and depth of the sound of vinyl.

Quality Headphone Amplification

Audiolab 6000A integrated amplifier included a dedicated headphone amp with current-feedback circuitry. It has a high gain bandwidth and high slew rates which ensures your headphones perform to a premium level. The 6000A has the power to drive some of even the most demanding headphones and deliver a stunningly detailed and dynamic performance every time.

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....
