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 around 125 watts per channel. Retailing for just under £400, two are required for stereo although many people will buy more to make a fairly impressive home cinema system.
Originally launched in the eighties and then resurrected by IAG in 2004 when the Audiolab brand name was rescued from TAG Maclaren, the Audiolab 8000M Monoblock Amplifier has always had a reputation as being a solid and accomplished performer although some criticise it for not being musical enough and too ruthless. Whatever the slight niggles some people may have with this amplifier, the Audiolab 8000M Monoblock Amplifier is stilll 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.
Like all other current Audiolab amplifiers, 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 Monoblock Amplifier is available from your nearest Audiolab dealer priced £399 in the UK.
