Opened box unit in good new condition
The new Audiolab Omnia is a neat one box system incorporating Audiolab's three award wining products, the 6000A amplifier, the 6000N network player and the 6000CDT CD Player all in one unit. All you need is to add speakers of your choice.
We have had the pleasurer of hearing the first Omnia fresh of the production line, and it really did leave a great impression, there didn't seam to be a compromise at all over the three separate components and at only £1599 it is very competitively priced for this level of performance and specification.
The Omnia has the same 2 x 50WPC Class AB Amplifier as the 6000A. Hi-Res Streaming with MQA (master quality audio) and has been ROON Tested. The dedicated CD transport incorporates the same slot-loading mechanism as audiolab’s flagship CD player, the 8300CDQ.
Simply connect your passive speakers to the audiolab Omnia and you have access to a world of audio sources with impeccable playback.
The audiolab Omnia maintains the award-winning, instantly recognisable, audiolab design cues. Unfussy yet striking in appearance, the curved, brushed aluminum chassis is ‘typical audiolab’ but evolved to suit the modern-day living environment. Omnia is attractive but discreet, oﬀering the perfect balance for living rooms and listening rooms alike.
In a world where music is more available than ever and sources more varied than ever, Omnia doesn’t discriminate. However you listen to your music, Omnia has got you covered. To sum it up, the audiolab Omnia is a cd player, integrated ampliﬁer, wireless streaming player, DAC, headphone ampliﬁer, and pre-amp – in one single unit!
Utilising high-quality analogue preamp circuitry, akin to the acclaimed audiolab 6000 series, coupled to line-level RCA inputs to connect analogue sources, the preamp circuitry is kept as simple as possible. Using high-quality components to maintain signal purity, with line input signals passing to a precision analogue volume stage, Omnia is an outstanding pre-amp, in its own right.
A dedicated MM phono input means a turntable can be directly connected to Omnia via a high-quality, low-noise, phono stage with precise RIAA equalisation. This phono stage is continue evolution on the award winning 6000 series – engineered to make the most of the music nestling within an LP’s grooves.
For networked audio playback, the audiolabOmnia is equipped with an ethernet port, lending itself to a wired connection and the wider bandwidth requirements of high-resolution digital audio.
For the most convenient access to wireless music playback, Omnia oﬀers Bluetooth connectivity with high-quality, low latency, with the Bluetooth aptX standard.
The 6000A Play’s Wi-Fi networking is powered by DTS Play-Fi: an app-controlled platform enabling high-quality, whole-home wireless audio, capable of streaming hi-res music up to 24-bit/192kHz and supported by a greater range of established audio brands than any other wireless platform.
The USB DAC section is based upon audiolab’s long-term partner, and multi-award-winning, pedigree. The new ESS9038 Q2M SABRE 32 Reference DAC performs D/A conversion, utilising ESS Technology’s 32-bit HypersStream II architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator to deliver ultra-low noise and high dynamic range.
No company knows more about making the most of this technically excellent, but challenging, DAC technology than audiolab; the universally acclaimed M-DAC was one of the ﬁrst home audio components to incorporate an ESS chip back in 2011, and the company has been honing its implementation ever since.
IPS LC Display
Via the USB DAC section, the audiolab Omnia also offers full decoding of MQA (Master Quality Authenticated). MQA is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. The Omnia includes MQA decoder technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams – received via the USB input – at the original file’s full resolution and passes the signal through its DAC and preamp stages. MQA files are available via subscription to TIDAL’s ‘HiFi’ tier (among other sources).
Firmly planting itself as a very useable piece of high-tech equipment, the audiolab Omnia makes use of a colour IPS LCD display, offering a higher clarity of colour and lower power consumption than TFT displays. Via the captivating display, the audiolab Omnia offers a simplified general user interface and a graphical integration with your music source and playback formats. It also uses a brand new protocol for a real-time VU meter display, adding a touch of hi-fi finesse to the very functional, equally good-looking, display interface.
