AUDIOLAB 6000A INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER
The Audiolab 6000A uses Class A/B amplification, with a claimed power of 50W per channel into 8 ohms. The pre-amplifier section is kept as simple as possible to maintain signal integrity, while the layout aims to keep noise interference and distortion down to a minimum. There are also independent power supplies for critical stages of the circuit, and a dedicated headphone amplifier that uses current-feedback circuitry.
The 6000A has four digital inputs – two apiece for optical and coaxial – and all are capable of playing up to 24-bit/192kHz hi-res audio files. There are also three line level analogue connections and a pair of moving magnet phono inputs. It has Bluetooth, too. A 6.3mm headphone port is mounted on the front panel, alongside a large easy-to-read display and rotary dials for analogue volume, input and mode selectors.
