Formed in the early 1980s by Philip Swift and Derek Scotland, audiolab earned worldwide acclaim with the 8000A – an integrated stereo amplifier that became a classic ‘step-up’ from the budget models of the time.

During the ensuing years, the 8000A established itself as one of the most successful British amps ever produced, and was joined by a range of electronics including CD players, pre/power amps and an FM tuner.

The brand switched hands in 1997, changing its name to TAG McLaren Audio; and it so was known until 2004 when audiolab became part of the International Audio Group and returned to its original name.

“If ever a product defined its market, the 8000A is the one.

Reliability, ease of use, engineering excellence and a well-behaved sound are the pillars supporting the justified reputation of the 8000A.

Over the years, audiolab’s no-nonsense, evolutionary approach to design has widely been recognised.”

8300 Series

In the audiolab 8300 Series, they have asked fundamental questions about how people enjoy the music they love and to make sure their hi-fi is as easy to use as it is easy on the ears.

While their engineers have referenced the blueprint of the 8200, each component has come under scrutiny to create a hi-fi system leaps ahead of what is already a leader in its field.

With more efficient components, high- definition audio format technology and redefined aesthetics, the 8300 Series has raised the bar, yet again. audiolab proudly present the new 8300A, 8300CD and 8300MB.
