The Audiolab 6000A Play Integrated Amplifier & Streaming Player: Enjoy Stellar Sound Quality from a Multitude of Sources: Analog, Digital, and Streaming, All-in-One

The Audiolab 6000A Play Integrated Amplifier & Streaming Player is a versatile, feature-rich, all-encompassing audio solution. It offers the best of two worlds, as it combines the top features of the class-leading 6000A integrated amplifier and the acclaimed 6000N Play wireless audio streaming player. Embracing the world of music streaming but retaining all the awarding-winning analog and digital audio circuitry from the 6000A, the powerful 6000A Play offers almost universal source compatibility.

The Audiolab 6000A Play incorporates the innovative DTS Play-Fi platform for built-in high-resolution wireless streaming playback. You can stream from any source on your wireless network, including smartphones, tablets, or PCs, as well as a network-attached storage device (NAS). So, however you want to experience your music, the Audiolab 6000A Play will deliver outstanding performance.

The DTS Play-Fi platform offers a wealth of music options from around the globe, including Qobuz, TIDAL, Spotify, HDtracks, Deezer, Amazon Music, Napster, and Sirius XM, just to name a few. You can browse a radio guide with thousands of stations and podcasts, or stream from a home media server with DLNA compatibility. The 6000A Play can connect to your home network wirelessly or via Ethernet.

On the back panel, the 6000A Play offers an array of connections: two optical digital inputs; two coaxial digital inputs; and five stereo RCA inputs, including a phono input for a turntable with a moving-magnet cartridge. If you want to use a separate amplifier, the 6000A Play has a preamp output.

Overall, the Audiolab 6000A Play offers flexibility without compromise. With deep, well-defined bass, expressive midrange, and sweet, subtle treble, the 6000A Play delivers high-fidelity playback that engages the listener with natural, unforced energy that is fully reflective of the source material.

A remote control is included, and there is a headphone jack on the front panel. Like all Music Direct products, the Audiolab 6000A Play Integrated Amplifier & Streaming Player comes with the 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.

"The 6000A Play is, in a word, fun.... [Its] upbeat character brings benefits to tracks that demand it.... [This is] a well-featured streaming amplifier that is easy to use...."
What Hi-Fi?

"The sound quality of the Audiolab when listening to streaming music — either wired or wirelessly — was so good that the source didn't really matter.... Happily, I can say that the Audiolab 6000A Play is insanely impressive.... The Audiolab, more so than maybe any other amp we've reviewed this year, has been able to slot into the signal chain and make every speaker sound its absolute best, without fail."
—Andrew Robinson, The Recovering Audiophile (YouTube)

Audiolab Circuitry

In the Audiolab 6000A Play, the output stage of the discrete power amp circuits uses a CFB (Complementary Feedback) topology, ensuring superior linearity and excellent thermal stability, as the idle current is kept independent of the temperature of the output transistors.

The preamp section is kept as simple as possible to maintain signal purity, with line input signals passing to a precision analog volume stage. The latter covers the range from -80dB to +8dB in steps of 2dB and 1dB (step resolution increases with volume position). The Audiolab engineers put a great deal of effort into designing the physical layout of the 6000A's circuitry, protecting the sensitive preamp section from noise interference.
