Audiolab re-wrote the rulebook with the introduction of the 8200 series. Although the 8200CD was a stand out product and won numerous awards, the 8200A crept under the radar.

That is all set to change with the new 8300A. A stunning amp to look at and listen too, it has a bigger, punchier sound than the model it replaces. Dual Mono Pwer Amp design, an Excellent Phono stage, Balanced Inputs and drop dead gorgeous looks. 

With the introduction of the 8300 series Audiolab needed to step up the range again, and they have. Keeping with the iconic Audiolab styling, they have created a fresh look that would not seem out of place with legacy Audiolab products. A more mature sound is present throughout the 8300 range but with a familiar feel. 

Without a doubt, one of the best evolutions of an already great product. 

Completely redesigned from scratch, our new integrated amplifier, the 8300A is miles ahead of what was already an industry-leader. Higher power, an additional phono stage and new Audiolab styling means the amplifier is more stylish and more versatile than ever. Most importantly it's new, ultra-efficient circuitry and streamlined components create a listening experience which brings new definition to your favourite music.
