Like all high power amplifiers, this unit ideally needs at least two inches of free air space above it, in order to ventilate properly. If you intend to stack it vertically with another unit, it is always best to put the amp on top.

Audiolab 8300A amplifier
One of the best sounding sub 1,000 integrated amps!

I suspect that when the dust settles on the all new 8300 series it will be this model that will be hailed as the biggest improvement over the outgoing unit. A completely new circuit layout, including dual mono construction has resulted in an amplifier with sound quality that is much closer in character to the legendary 8000A amp that first launched Audiolab into the Hi-Fi spotlight, over 33 years ago.

Just like its illustrious predecessor, the 8300A boosts the sort of audiophile quality performance that would normally only be achievable from multiple box separate systems, in combination with outstanding connectivity and functionality. It has loads of line level inputs, plus a high specification phonostage (both MC and MM) twin XLR inputs, pre-amplifier output, power amplifier input, twin banks of high quality 4mm speaker cable sockets and even a 12v trigger facility. That already puts the 8300A ahead of the competition, before you even plug it in and listen to it! However, when you do get to that stage you will discover why many reviewers believe this product is in its own at it's price point, because the 8300A presents music in a totally dynamic and engaging way, dragging every last drop of detail from any recording, in exactly the same way as the ground-breaking 8000A did all those years ago - but now with much more finesse and sophistication.

Arguably, the only thing this amplifier lacks is a streaming capability, but that is easily rectified by simply adding on the excellent little 30 ChromeCast Audio, which will allow you to 'dip your toe' into the streaming world of Spotify / Tidal / internet radio etc, without having to go to the huge expense of buying an add on streamer. ChromeCast Audio sounds plenty good enough to get you started with streaming and if you like what you hear you can always get a higher quality dedicated streamer later.

The Audiolab 8300CD is arguably the perfect source component, giving not only outstanding performance on CD, but also a dramatic lift in performance for music stored on PC (e.g. iTunes) or derived from other digital components. The matching new 8300A amplifier makes the most of the CD's output, giving a sparkling presentation that again reaches well beyond its price. Put the 2 units together and you have a slim-line combo that sounds great, ticks all the connectivity boxes and offers unparalleled value for money.
