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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Control and features make for stunning purchase Incredible amplifier with stacks of features and sublime control and tone. As a young chap in the 80’s I dreamed of the Audiolab 8000 range and delighted to eventually own one which has been brought bang up to date. A great phono stage getting the best out of my turntable. Great purchase with a solid upgrade path with external power amps to temp me in the future not that it’s ceying out for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product & service I hard to replace my (very old) Audiolab 8000 amplifier. Great advice at the Cardiff Shop which included possible faults and possible repairs but the old amp was terminal. I decided on an Audiolab 8300 as a replacement, there was a slight delay in the delivery to Cardiff (not Richer Sounds fault), collected following 'phone call, very easy to set up. Simple to use and the performance is a noticeable improvement on the 8000. Many thanks to Steffen, Max and John at the Cardiff Shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds amazing, top quality product I went along to demo the audiolab 8300a amp & 8300cd against the roksan k3 amp & cd player. There was not a lot between them regarding sound quality. I went with the audiolab setup because, on test , I noticed two screws where missing from the cover on the rocksan cd player and it would not play one of my cd's. The audiolab played it with no issues. I also liked the fact that I could bi-wire the speakers and connect the amp to the cd player via xlr cable which is a far superior connection than using a rca cable. These two improvements over the rocksan have give me a better sounding system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning........ I had doubts, spending almost a thousand pounds is never a simple decision but I would advise everyone to spend the thousand pounds. It has nice features, it is adaptable and the volume control is wonderful. The reproduction is amazing, straight out of the box it was a joy and it is getting better all the time. It is open and detailed, the dynamics make old familiar songs sound new and vibrant, revealing levels of complexity I never new were there. Just buy it, make yourself happy.
