Formed in the early 1980s by Philip Swift and Derek Scotland, Audiolab earned worldwide acclaim with the 8000A – an integrated stereo amplifier that became a classic ‘step-up’ from the budget models of the time.
During the ensuing years, the 8000A established itself as one of the most successful British amps ever produced, and was joined by a range of electronics including CD players, pre/power amps and an FM tuner.
In 2010 Audiolab began the introduction of its latest full-width 8200 Series components and in 2011 the arrival of the M-DAC heralded a new compact LAB range. Since the launch of the 8200 Series and LAB Series, Audiolab has won more major awards in UK hi-fi magazines than any other brand of high-performance audio electronics.
2015 saw the launch of Audiolab‘s brand new 8300 Series. With a long working relationship with Audiolab, world renowned audio designer Jan Ertner headed up the design of the 8300 series and then the 6000 Series in 2018. The 6000A was the first in the series to be released receiving many significant awards from UK hi-fi magazines and online influencers, setting the precedent for the 6000CDT and 6000N Play.
