Audiolab 6000A Amplifier
Digital to Analogue Converter
The 6000A puts much emphasis on digital audio processing, performing as well as many standalone DACs. An ES9018 Sabre 32-bit reference chip DAC is used, employing ESS technology 32-bit HyperStream architecture and time domain jitter eliminator, in order to deliver ultra-low noise and high dynamic range in the performance. The ES9018 chip was first used with Audiolab’s M-DAC in 2011, and since then Audiolab have been refining the technology surrounding the chip to improve the musical expression the DAC is capable of producing, for a captivating performance.
A Class AB discrete amplifier delivering 50 watts per channel into 8 Ohms is used inside the 6000A. With Complementary Feedback topology on the output stage of the discrete amplifier, idle current is separated from the temperature of the output transistors, for superior linearity and thermal stability. A large 200VA toroidal transformer in sequence with four 15000µF reservoir capacitors maintains a solid grip on the music, whilst simultaneously providing excellent dynamic range. To preserve signal purity, the pre-amp section is kept as simple as possible, and passes on line input signals to a precision analogue volume stage. The volume stage has a range from -80dB to +8dB moving in steps of 1 and 2dB. The physical layout of the amplifier circuitry has been much considered, in order to eliminate as much noise as possible, especially the sensitive pre-amp section. Independent low noise power supplies for each critical stage also help to deliver a clean and sonically true performance, that can rival higher end analogue amplifiers.
Considering modern listening habits and trends, Audiolab have included many useful features on the 6000A. With growing popularity of the vinyl record revival, the 6000A contains a Moving Magnet phono stage, using high quality, low-noise JFET circuitry, offering precise RIAA equalisation. Simply connect your turntable to the phono input and begin listening right away. Another feature included is the dedicated headphone amplifier, with current feedback circuitry incorporated. The high gain bandwidth and high slew rate deliver a dynamic and detailed reproduction, with all types of headphones. The 6000A also integrates Bluetooth wireless connectivity to stream music directly from your smartphone or tablet, so you can experience your digital collection through the high quality DAC on-board the amplifier.
