Audiolab 8000Q Preamp & 8000M Monoblocks, England

-Audiolab 8000Q Remote Controlled Preamp





A pre amplifier and power amplifier combo has always been something to aspire to in hi-fi.
Pre/power combos generally offer much better performance than a single box amplifier as the separate components have been built to perform their function perfectly without cutting corners.

In stark contrast, the Audiolab 8000Q pre amplifier and Audiolab 8000M monoblocks were designed by Audiolab utilising years of experience in making award winning amplifiers.



Audiolab 8000Q preamp is a class A circuit. And that little black box inside shields the remainder of the circuit from digital radiation.

Audiolab 8000Q is a simple, high quality, remote control pre amplifier, offering 6 inputs (including 3 tape loops – which can also be used for CD recorders or other recording devices).

The 8000Q manages to achieve something rare in pre amplifiers under £1000 – neutrality.



All signals are switched with audiophile signal relays and the volume control is a motorised potentiometer.

The low impedance line amplifier is a miniature class A power amplifier with current mirror bias – which is also ideal for use with long interconnects to multiple power amplifiers.

All things considered, the 8000Q is one of the finest pre amplifiers we’ve heard!



The far-left gain trim can scale back the amplification factor to expand useful volume range.
This avoids shaking the walls at 9 o’clock. High-sensitivity speakers will benefit from reduced gain, low-output sources from higher gain.

In use, you’ll select a setting that opens the volume control a fair bit before things get really loud.
A rule of thumb is that attenuators offer improved channel matching at higher setting. That’s a rather useful feature.



Conclusion:
Timeless cosmetic elegance. Workmanship is typical for the genre. The Brits usually leave material excess to others – and sloppiness as well. I have seen better speaker binding posts though.

With six inputs, the preamp is comprehensively fitted, albeit not symmetrically. Two pre-outs invite biamping. A special feature is the gain trim to scale the master volume taper to the source output voltage and speaker sensitivity.

Sonic virtues include tonal neutrality, great transparency and excellent staging. The depth perspective doesn’t show the typical semi circle with its dark corners but rolls out the far left and right behind the speakers to get peopled there by orchestral members. Add great image specificity.

-Audiolab 8000M Monoblock Amplifier


Audiolab 8000M Monoblock Amplifier is an extremely impressive performer and for many years two of the orginal Audiolab 8000M Monoblock Amplifier formed part of What Hi-Fi’s reference system.



The Audiolab 8000M Monoblock Amplifier is Audiolab’s flagship power amplifier, a single channel amplifier hence the ‘M’ in the title for mono which typical pumps out genuine 125 watts per channel into an 8 ohm loudspeaker load and features twin output terminals for bi-wiring.

It has parallel phono connectors making it easy to connect several pairs of 8000Ms to any pre-amplifier. This allows you to daisy-chain units to further improve headroom in bi-amped and even tri-amped systems.

Two are required for stereo although many people will buy more to make a fairly impressive home cinema system.



Audiolab 8000M Monoblock Amplifier is gain matched meaning you can chop and change or upgrade amplifiers or combine an Audiolab 8000P Power Amplifier with an Audiolab 8000M Monoblock Amplifier in a home cinema system without having to worry about differing output levels.

Built to last with a good track record, the Audiolab 8000M Monoblock Amplifier is a very serious performer and one that should produce terrific dynamics in any system set up.

The Audiolab 8000M mono power amplifier has been designed to be doubled up for stereo power amplification, offering better performance than a single stereo power amplifier.



The monos show a quite generous 500VA toroid (remember, that’s for just one channel), two 10,000uF Elko capacitors and centrally arrayed heat sinks.

Four Sanken 2SC2922 transistors are strapped for push/pull duty to make 125 watts into 8 ohms (200 into 4, with maximally 12 amperes of current).

Altogether a well-organized picture. Even less cluttered is the front panel. Power mains, red LED.

Power Output: 125 Watts per channel into 8 ohm
Input Impedance: 47 Kohm
Gain: 29 dB (at 1 kHz)
