Totally redesigned from the ground up, the Audiolab 8300A is a class-leading amplifier.

Improving on an industry leader

The Audiolab 8200A was one of the most highly acclaimed amps in its class with a first-class reputation for sound quality. Improving on this hasn't been easy for Audiolab, but with a complete ground up redesign by veteran amp designer Jan Ertner, they've managed to do just that.

Dual mono design for superb accuracy
At the heart of the Audiolab 8300A is a new dual mono circuit design. This means that both the left and right audio channels have their own circuitry. Interference between channels is drastically reduced giving superb stereo clarity and precision of sound. Other thoughtful design elements include a power supply that is placed as far away from the sensitive audio processors as possible - helping to reduce distortion.

More power
Delivering a punchy 75 watts per channel, the 8300A is capable of driving even the most difficult speakers to high levels. A high quality toroidal power transformer delivers not only powerful dynamics and effortless grunt, but also high efficiency and low noise.

Connect up your record deck using the built-in phono stage
With the vinyl revival in full swing, Audiolab have fitted the 8300A with a built-in phono stage. Unlike most of the competition it will accept both MM (Moving Magnet) and MC (Moving Coil) cartridge inputs for full compatibility with all turntables.

Pre/power amp split versatility
Highly impressive in its own right, the 8300A also offers superb upgrade potential. Using pre/power split functions you can add either a higher quality power amp(s), such as the awesome Audiolab 8300MB or a superior pre-amp. The twin pre-outs are also handy for other applications, such as recording or connecting to an active subwoofer.

Balanced inputs for the ultimate connection
Along with the five line-level inputs, the 8300A features balanced XLR inputs. Matched to a compatible source, these give the ultimate connection with the highest level of resistance to electrical interference.

Smooth new style
With its routed aluminium dials and recessed power switch, the 8300A looks purer and cleaner in design. A choice of silver or black, blasted aluminium finishes means that the amp will fit in with a wide range of other hi-fi components. A new display makes it easy to check the amps' status.

With the Audiolab 8300A the best just got better. 


One of the best-equipped CD players in its class, the Audiolab 8300CD has the power to transform your system.

ESS Sabre DAC for superb sound quality

Renowned as one of the best DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertor) available, the 32-bit ESS Sabre at the heart of the 8300CD is a very special device. Banishing levels of jitter and distortion to the lowest levels possible, it gives the 8300CD a natural and pure sound with low background noise.

Hyperstream modulator for punchy dynamics
Working with the ESS DAC, the Hyperstream modulator offers optimal transient response for a punchy, powerful sound.

New slot-load mechanism
Using a slot-load mechanism makes the 8300CD faster to load and cleaner in style. Doing without the traditional loading tray also reduces the chance of resonance, potentially improving sound quality still further. The new mechanism is also tolerant of imperfect discs that might be scratched or dirty, letting you play your most loved discs that offer players may refuse.

USB input with High Resolution Audio compatibility
With its USB input, you can enjoy high resolution music streamed from your computer. Compatible with data up to 32-bit/384kHz, the 8300CD is equipped not just for now but for the future of High Resolution Audio, too. The USB input now also accepts DSD (Direct Stream Digital) data, making the 8300CD compatible with an even wider range of file types.

More than just a CD player, it's a digital hub for your complete system
As well as the USB input, the 8300CD is also equipped with one AES/EBU, two coaxial and two optical digital inputs. Connect up sources such as your TV, games console and set-top TV box and you can enjoy the power of the 8300CD's awesome DAC with all your digital components. Powerful dynamics and ultra-low distortion can be experienced across the board.

Class-leading connectivity
Added to the USB and comprehensive selection of digital inputs, the 8300CD also fares extremely well on the output front. Digital outputs are available via AES/EBU, coaxial or optical means - covering every type you could wish for. On the analogue side, both analogue RCAs and balanced XLRs are included. Balanced XLRs give you professional standard connectivity with superior screening for reduced distortion.

Smooth new style
With its slot-loading mechanism, the 8300CD looks purer and cleaner in design. A choice of silver or black, blasted aluminium finish means that the player will fit in with a wide range of other hi-fi components.
