The Audiolab X7 is a genuine one-box, seven channel power amplifier, capable of handling even difficult loudspeaker loads – it will cleanly deliver 7 x. The Audiolab X7 gives you home cinema sound so powerful you will think you at the movies, matched with the Audiolab AV Pre-Amplifier you can. If ever a brand typified the most conservative values of reliable, performance- driven British hi-fi, then Audiolab alongside its IAG stablemate, Quad, would be.

Which audiilab why the launch of its first AV product demands some serious attention. The DAC performance is impressive too, with notably fine high treble and very clear decay of notes into silence. I do have someone seeing if the can take it closer to the end of the month.

The amp is now sold. Some 18 months later, Audiolab has tried to address some of our concerns, but that long a timespan is an eternity in modern home cinema terms — just ask HD DVD manufacturers. But the latter is twice the price and doesn’t include seven channels!
