Audiolab 8300A review


Audiolab's latest stereo amp shows plenty of muscle, but how does it compare to the class-leaders?

Plenty of muscle ; Clean and crisp sound ; Fine build and finish ; Sensible range of features

Sound isn’t the most engaging around

The 8300A is a hugely capable product but sacrifices a little too much fun for our tastes

I've had this 8300a around 6 weeks now and it is just sublime. I love everything about it. It seems to take around 40 minutes to sound its best but when its there it really does sing! I switch it on beforehand ie in the morning on the weekend or when i...

Great Amp


I'm using the Audiolab with an M-Dac, connected via XLR, and feeding it High Def audio from Amazon Unlimited. I have the amp connected to some B&W 606 speakers. Together everything sounds absolutely great, the M-DAC also brings the added benefit of a...

Audilab 8300 well done well done


I have bought this 8300 amp in the middle of Feb so it been fairly used since then. After a few weeks, I'm pretty sure, I surpassed at least 200h of listening and can say with confidence the performance developed, and soundstage and overall sonic...

Great sounding amp with minimal controls.


Just replaced my 25 year old 8000A with the new 8300A, which sounds crisper and clearer! Still has phono and powers 2 sets of speakers, but do miss the headphone socket, tone controls and switchable speaker set. Less controls gives better sound? If...

Super amplifier with great style.


Love the understated style of this amp but the real joy is how effortless it performs, the Audiolab 8300 adds nothing to the recording that's not on the recording I find myself listen at a louder level because there is no distortion, another feature of...

Very impressed.


I had the Audiolab 8000A for 32 years and thought maybe now is the time for an upgrade and again went for an Audiolab. Very pleased I did. Great sound and I am now looking forward to revisiting my music library. Very impressed.

Good AB Amplifier, great set of Analogue features


Stereo Imagine is good, with great bass control. The sound is clear and very accurate, but not as full bodied as some rivals. The phono stage is good enough not to warrant an external phono stage. The Bi-Wiring options is good for my B&W Speakers as it...

Thanks Richer Cheltenham.


Having recently bought a new turntable and speakers it was time for a new amp to do them justice. The staff at Richer Sounds Cheltenham are all helpful and service is always good, however Richard was an absolute star on this occasion, allowing me to...

Excellent sound


Does appear to be very musical amp for playing CD's, streaming music, watch TV and Movies. Benefits from giving a bit of volume to get the best sound. Paired with Tannoy Revolution floorstanders and other comparable separates. Definitely sounds like a...
