Home Audio for the Connoisseur

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. I can remember working at a store here in London in the mid-eighties when the first audiolab 8000A made its appearance in Canada. The sound and build quality, fit and finish were leagues ahead of the rather crude Creek, Nytech and A&R Cambridge (ARCAM) amplifiers we were selling back then.

During the ensuing years, the audiolab 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.
