Product Description

Audiolab 6000A

The 6000A Integrated Amplifier is Audiolab’s latest edition to their amplifier range. From vinyl records to digital streaming the Audiolab 6000A is equipped to meet the demands of modern music lovers, all at an affordable price.

Overview

The amplifier is the beating heart of any high-performance audio system. To keep your audio system alive in the modern age an amplifier has to cover many bases - digital and analogue sources, wireless connectivity for portable devices, a phono stage to cater for vinyl playback, amplification for headphones as well as speakers… That’s a lot to pack in, whilst keeping performance high and the price tag affordable – and yet, that’s exactly what Audiolab’s 6000A delivers. High Quality D/A conversion (DAC), four digital inputs, three line-level analogue inputs, an input for a turntable, wireless connectivity via Bluetooth and a dedicated headphone amp are all on the 6000A’s roster of Included features, which is impressive for an amplifier at this price.

Digital circuitry: Audiolab have put a lot of effort into ensuring that the 6000A’s digital circuitry delivers the level of quality one might expect of a high-performance standalone DAC. Audiolab use the ES9018 Sabre32 Reference chip to perform D/A conversion which helps deliver ultra-low noise and high dynamic range. If the circuitry around the chip is of low standard the sound can suffer. This is not the case with the 6000A, the level of musical expression that this chip digs from the digital signal is captivating.

Analog circuitry: The 6000A’s discrete Class AB power amp stage delivers 50W per channel into eight ohms, with a maximum current delivery of 9 Amps into difficult loads. The output stage of the discrete power amp circuits uses a CFB (Complementary Feedback) topology, ensuring superior linearity and excellent thermal stability, as the idle current is kept independent of the temperature of the output transistors. A substantial 200VA toroidal transformer, followed by 4x15000uF reservoir capacity (60000uF in total), helps the amp to maintain firm control of the music whilst enabling excellent dynamic range. Much effort has gone into the physical layout of the 6000A’s circuitry, protecting the sensitive preamp section from noise interference. This, plus the use of independent low-noise power supplies for critical stages, helps to deliver a performance that rivals significantly more expensive analogue amplifiers, even before taking the 6000A’s impressive digital circuitry into account.

Turntables and headphones: Due to the recent ‘Vinyl Revival’ Audiolab has included a phono stage for moving magnet phono cartridges meaning you can get the most out of your vinyl collection. Similarly an increasing number of people are using headphones for music listening, so Audiolab has incorporated a dedicated headphone amp with current-feedback circuitry. Its gain bandwidth and high slew rate ensure a dynamic, detailed and engaging performance with all manner of headphone types

Operational Modes: The 6000A offers three distinct operational modes; Integrated, Pre-Power and Pre Mode. Integrated Mode combines the pre and power amp stages for the connection of digital and analogue sources to the amp’s inputs and a pair of speakers to its binding posts. Pre-Power Mode disconnects the pre and power amp stages. This allows the 6000A to be used solely as a power amp. Finally the Pre Mode disables the power amp stage, turning the 6000A into a standalone preamp. This enables external power amplification to be added giving you the option to upgrade if you wish.
