Description

Audiolab 6000A is the integrated amp from the 6000 range, which replaces the 8000 range and delivers premium-level performance and build quality at an affordable price.

Audiolab 6000A Integrated amplifier comes fully loaded with digital and analogue sources, wireless connectivity for portable devices, a phono stage to cater for vinyl playback and amplification for headphones as well as speakers.

Classic Hi-Fi for Modern Age

The 6000A’s lead electronics designer is Jan Ertner who was responsible for the 8300A, as well as many other award-winning audio components over the years. When challenged to deliver 6000A at such a low price point, Jan returned to the technologies implemented in the 8300A and painstakingly redeveloped them, whilst adding high-quality digital circuitry to the mix.

The consequence is a next-level amplifier evolved from the build of its sibling, bringing exceptional sound class beside the elastic facilities. The 6000A resonates the concept of the original 8000A from the early 1980s rebooted with the value of Audiolab’s latest skills. When considering inflation, it is also the most low-cost amplifier Audiolab has ever manufactured.

Turntables & Headphones

In recognition of the recent vinyl revival, Audiolab has included a phono stage for moving magnet phono cartridges – a high-quality, low-noise, JFET-based circuit with precise RIAA equalisation. Similarly, an increasing number of people are using headphones for music listening, so Audiolab has incorporated a dedicated headphone amp with current- feedback circuitry. Its gain bandwidth and high slew rate ensure a dynamic, detailed and engaging performance with all manner of headphone types –more boxes ticked for this most integrated of integrated amplifiers.

Operational Modes

The 6000A’s flexibility with digital and analogue sources is not the only thing that makes it so versatile; it also offers three distinct operational modes, reflecting the amp’s discrete internal architecture and enabling it to adapt to its user’s evolving requirements. The primary mode is ‘Integrated’– this combines the pre and power amp stages, for the connection of digital and analogue sources to the amp’s inputs and a pair of speakers to its binding posts.

Pre-Power Mode disconnects the pre and power amp stages so 6000A can be used solely as a power amp e.g connected to an AV processor in a home cinema system. It also enables additional signal processing to be added, by connecting the 6000A’s ‘preamp out’ socket to an external processor, then returning the processor’s output to the amp’s ‘power amp in’ socket. Finally, ‘Pre Mode’ disables the power amp stage, turning the 6000A into a standalone preamp. This enables external power amplification to be added, thus providing a possible upgrade path.
