The Audiolab 8000C pre-amplifier is a highly versatile control pre-amplifier..It offers the flexibility of tone controls, built in class A headphone amplifier and loe output impedence line amplifier. It has inputs for CD, phono, tuner, video, tape 1 and tape 2. The phono inputs match all types of modern Moving Coil and Moving Magnes cartridges. The low output impedance line amplifier is a miniature class A power amplifier with current mirror bias. Perfect for long cables and multiple power amplifiers That is especially important if you want to place your power amplifiers (e.g. 8000M's) close to the loudspeakers.
