Audiolab AP/X7 (£/£) – Pre/power amplifiers
The same applied in the jazz track, where the bass seemed somehow slower than the melody. Slight nudge to the top.
MadHat on October 18, The dynamic range of these new HD soundtracks should be approached with some caution however, for while you might adjust the volume to suit the dialogue and incidental effects throughout the opening scenes on the space station, the sound of the shuttle pod ripping through the forest has the X7 sounding bitingly hard.
Between the transformer and the output audlolab are seven channels of driver stages, implemented with a mixture of through-hole and surface-mount parts, mostly discrete transistors and decent-quality passive parts. 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 firmly in the running. Once installed, the X7 may be left in standby mode and activated either by an audio signal or external trigger.
xudiolab Now those are real stars mate, not some has-been off a jam commercial or a weather presenter nobody actually watches as they rush off to work in the morning. All the same, the higher frequencies in this track were clear and natural and the overall presentation encouraged musical, rather than technical thoughts in the listeners.

The X7 is a much less high-tech affair. There’s ample punch and drive, and though the top of the frequency range shines sweetly, there’s never any danger of hard edges creeping in. Impressive clarity Classical music also showed off the Audiolabs to good advantage, with the relationship between instruments particularly admired.
It makes sense in that respect, but the AP will decode a hi-res soundtrack as multi-channel PCM so those without players but with decoders built in will still be in for a bit of a treat sound wise.
Audiolab isn’t the first modestly sized hi-fi firm to find the inexorable onward march of home cinema technology tricky to keep up with. 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.
I use it to drive my Atmos Speakers. Stereo music reproduction is equally impressive, the ‘X7 communicating amiably and explicitly — fine detail is plentiful from the top of the frequency range to the bottom, a complicated song like Paul Simon’s The Boy in the Bubble being delivered with verve and accuracy.
The way of the warrior is NO match for the way of the wife. Not surprisingly, all the signal switching and volume control stuff is done digitally, but Audiolab has gone one step further and digitised the analogue inputs, as is evident from their frequency response.
