The Audiolab 8000p is a great amplifier. It is mostly held back by the quality components both in the power supply and signal path. You may not notice the slight edginess and lack of air and space around the top end - until it's gone!
Our upgrades begin by addressing these issues to release the hidden potential inside your amplifier.
Once upgraded you will hear more detail, clarity and definition. The detail is presented within a very natural and expansive soundstage, with more realistic and natural textures to instruments. Bass is much more defined and separated allowing bass lines in the musical structure to be more easily followed. In a nutshell the end result is just more of everything but with a natural presentation and flow which keeps you listening for hours.
