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
Audiolab’s new 8300
Series has big shoes to fill. After all, the preceding product generation has
won more awards in the UK press during the last five years than any other range
of high-performance audio electronics.
The 8300A integrated
amplifier, with its radically redesigned circuitry and high-performance phono
stage, is perfectly poised to build on foundations first laid in 1983 by the
classic 8000A – one of the most influential British hi-fi components of all
time. Click here to play the video overview.
New Updated Aesthetic
The newly updated
external structure of the 8300 series follows the new design aesthetic of
Audiolab products going forward, incorporating softened lines and textures yet
still maintaining Audiolab’s instantly recognisable and contemporary style.
The 8300 series’
blasted aluminium finish, CNC routed aluminium dials and display certainly look
cutting-edge, yet with every Audiolab product, form follows function. The new
display and controls enable a fast and intuitive access through the vast
routing options and filter settings in both the A and CD.
On the 8300A
Engineers have developed a new phono stage catering for the resurgence in vinyl
records with MM and MC configurations accessible via the front panel controls.

While striving to
achieve the most supreme sound quality, each stage of Audiolab product
development is focused on usability. In particular with the 8300A, ensuring
simple yet in-depth control, veteran amp designer, Jan Ertner build the
amplifier functionality around the new display. This means users can easily
find their way around the versatile configurations the amplifier offers, even
while being much more advanced than its predecessors. The amplifier can behave
as an integrated amplifier, power amplifier, pre-amplifier and a split
pre-amplifier – easily paired with a multitude of hi-fi systems.
The 8300A works as
coherently inside as it does on the outside – By taking a completely new
approach to the layout, a dual mono structure means inter-channel interference
is minimised. Crucial components processing audio and the power supply are
completely separated as far as possible.
Our new technology –
Active Current Delivery also ensures a completely clean sound up to the point
of clipping, then its advanced microprocessor limits the output, which
guarantees no audible distortion, even at its louder output of 75W RMS.
