Audiolab Upgrades for all Audiolab HiFi equipment.
Greatly improved power-supply & signal path components bring a smoother and much more open sound with better detail, transparency, bass grip & definition.
Due to the age of these amplifiers, it is highly recommended that you get them serviced. Of course, we can do this for you; alternatively why not have the internal components upgraded for a huge improvement in sound quality?
The upgrades focus on improving the power supply & signal path for incredible improvements in clarity, definition and overall musicality.
You will hear a deeper and more controlled bass which has far better texture
Mids open up and become more realistic, whilst retaining fluidity and grace
Treble becomes more open, detailed & separated but remain sweet and realistic

The Audiolab preamp design has remained almost unchanged since the first edition.
Due to the heat generated by the voltage regulators, the liquid-filled electrolytic capacitors fitted both in the power supply and signal path gradually dry out and eventually fail.
This drying out has a detrimen..
Our Stage 2 Upgrade builds on the Stage 1 version by adding our Quintessence Ultra Low Noise Voltage Regulator to the power supply. The additional voltage regulators help reduce cross-pollution of the voltage supplies, giving each area of the circiut its own dedicated, heavily filtered sup..
