Feature-packed yet still focused on the highest quality sound, the Audiolab 9000A delivers in every respect.

The great all-rounder
Premium sound quality, class-leading versatility and style combine to make the Audiolab 9000A the latest in a long line of brilliant all-rounder Audiolab amps. The 100 watt amplifier is powerful enough for the largest spaces yet subtle enough to let your music shine. Connectivity spans the full digital and analogue realm, from Hi-Res via USB to turntable via the built-in phonostage. A fresh new style with colour LCD display looks smart and helps keep the button count down for a minimalist look.

Premium sound quality
First and foremost, the 9000A is all about sound quality. Using their highly regarded CFB (Complementary Feedback) technology, the amplifier is highly stable and thermally efficient. The pre-amp section is kept as simple as possible, with high quality components used throughout. This gives the amp very low levels of background noise, letting even the most subtle nuances of music shine through.

Power to impress
Delivering a mighty 100 watts per channel from its Class AB power amplifier, the 9000A is twice as powerful as the 6000A model. Achieved by using a substantial toroidal transformer and quad 15,000uF output capacitors, this amp always has plenty in reserve. With this much power to hand you get effortlessly extended bass, high volume capability and a full-bodied sound at lower volumes. Whatever you room size or speaker load, the 9000A simply delivers.

Digital connectivity
With the world renowned ESS 9038PRO 32-bit DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) at its heart, the 9000A shines with all digital sources. For the ultimate sound quality, connect your computer via the USB-B and enjoy music file playback up to 32-bit/768kHz PCM and DSD512. There are also two optical and two coaxial connections that are ideal for a CD/DVD player, TV, games console and network streamer. These handle hi-res music files up to 24-bit/192kHz and benefit from selectable digital filters to optimise the sound quality.

MQA and Roon Tested
Featuring full MQA compatibility, the 9000A makes the perfect partner for streaming music services such as TIDAL’s HiFi Plus tier. The format delivers Hi-Res sound without using the bandwidth of conventional file types letting you store more tracks and/or get a more reliable streaming service without buffering when used with lower capacity broadband services.
With Roon Tested certification, the 9000A works seamlessly within a Roon multi-platform, multiroom system.

Bluetooth aptX HD for high quality, wireless sound
For top quality, wireless sound, the 9000A is equipped with Bluetooth aptX HD. Pair with your compatible smartphone, tablet or laptop and enjoy Hi-Res sound quality, wirelessly. Ideal for getting the best sound quality from your premium music services or stored music files, aptX HD gives a more detailed and dynamic sound that’s a huge improvement on regular Bluetooth.

High quality phonostage for your premium turntable
The perfect match for a quality turntable, the built-in Moving Magnet (MM) phonostage means you don’t have to buy a separate device. Precision RIAA equalisation sets the phonostage apart from lesser designs and means that you get exceptional detail and the full benefit of the rich vinyl sound from your precious record collection.

Balanced inputs for the ultimate connection
Alongside the digital and turntable connections, the 9000A also features three AUX line-level inputs and balanced XLR inputs. Matched to a compatible source, these give the ultimate connection with the highest level of resistance to electrical interference.

Interactive LCD display
New for the 9000-series, the interactive LCD screen displays a wide range of interactive info. Choose between source display, music file quality, left/right VU metres or volume displays. Or, for the least distraction, simply turn the display off.

Enjoy upgraded sound for your entire system, with the Audiolab 9000A.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle, Insightful and Powerful. Bought this refurbished from RS via Amazon. It is a superb amp, understated power, superb resolution, great tonality top to bottom, wide and deep sound stage. Fantastic with analogue sources, detailed and insightful, it has an equally good DAC section which is highly resolving and musical. The display is genuinely useful, though I keep it off, so it only comes on when changing input or volume. The 9000A is particularly good with classical music, which is a good test of any amp, also jazz and ambient which I also listen to a lot. Probably not an amp for metal-heads, though; too subtle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audiolab Convert! An excellent product from Audiolab and excellent service from Richer Sounds. The aim was to replace my broken CD Player, through testing a number of players I settled on the Audiolab 9000CDT. As my 20+ year old amp didn't have optical in I took the opportunity to try out the 9000A to partner the 9000CDT. The 9000A complemented the 9000CDTperfectly and sounded great in the demo room. When I got it home I connected in my Turntable and streaming box alongside my new 9000CDT and connected the output to my Monitor Audio Silver 5s. A massive positive is that the 9000A has phono MM, line and digital inputs no additional boxes were needed keeping the overall install neat and tidy. The sound quality through all inputs (including phono) is just incredible I am hearing detail that I have never heard or noticed before, I know it has been said before but it really has breathed new life into my CD and Record Collection. An added bonus is the Bluetooth in, allowing direct connection and playing through a mobile phone, makes life much easier when friends come round and want to play their Spotify playlist! I must add the I received excellent service from the staff at the Richer Sounds Cardiff store, they took their time to understand my requirements and were very patient as we tried out different combinations with different music tracks - nothing was too much trouble. I was told that they would try and make sure my amp and CD transport will be delivered next day and they were true to their word.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great example of a amp that gets on with the job It’s lived up to the great demo that richer sounds gave me still enjoying the sounds this amp produces well worth the money though not cheap

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't expect this would win me over! After purchasing the 9000CDT my OCD kicked in and I wanted everything to match, work off one remote etc etc so thought I’d give the 9000A a trial. When I first listened to this amp, I didn’t like the sound and thought “oh well, back it goes”. Before packing up the amp that night, I decided to give it another listen as it’s being playing at low volumes in the background for a day or so. I couldn’t understand what happened as I experienced clarity from my speakers which I’ve never experienced before. Vocals seemed to have uplifted from my existing amp and the bass was more focused and controlled, with the most differences being in the mid bass. After the third or four day I was hooked and know this trial is going to be costly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds beautiful Recently purchased the 9000a. It replaces my 6000a which I’m still really happy with. I use the 9000a along side my denon 3600H AVR and use the power out to connect to the audiolab. It controls my front left and right speakers. When I want to listen to music I switch to integrated for the nicest sound. I’m running Dali opticon 2 mk2. I stream using a Cambridge audio CNXv2. Phono output seems to sound better as well. Overall I’m really pleased.
