Audiolab Omnia is a groundbreaking, complete audio solution.
Omnia blurs the boundaries between hi-fi and lifestyle and has all the prerequisites to make audiolab electronics the first choice for connoisseurs. And yet, thanks to its design, material aesthetics and ease of use, Omnia offers all the features that belong to an elegant and easy-to-use centerpiece of an uncompromising home audio system.
Audiolab Omnia retains the award-winning and instantly recognizable audiolab design; sleek yet distinctive. The curved brushed aluminum cabinet is “typical audiolab”, but evolved to integrate with the modern living environment. Omnia is attractive but discreet and offers the perfect balance for living rooms and equally for listening rooms. In a world where music is more available than ever, Omnia makes no distinction between the multitude of sources.
However you listen to your music, Omnia has everything you need. In summary, the audiolab Omnia is a CD player, an integrated amplifier, a wireless streaming player, a DAC, a headphone amplifier and a preamplifier – all in one!
Equipped with a powerful CD drive…
…the audiolab Omnia is a flagship in the world of “all-in-one” systems.
The Omnia’s extremely robust and reliable CD drive is based on the market-leading 6000CDT CD transport system with a digital buffer to reduce read errors. The performance of this CD mechanism is so high that Omnia is able to play even scratched and damaged CDs that cannot be read by conventional drives.
In addition to the CD section, the Omnia offers a variety of connection options
For conventional audio sources – optical, digital and stereo RCA inputs meet a wide range of system integration requirements.
With a high-quality analog preamp circuit similar to the highly acclaimed audiolab 6000 series, coupled with line-level RCA inputs for connecting analog sources, the preamp circuitry is kept as simple as possible. High-quality components ensure signal purity, with line inputs passing input signals to a precision analog volume stage. Thus, Omnia is an excellent preamplifier.
A dedicated MM phono input allows direct connection of a turntablevia a high-quality, low-noise phono stage with precise RIAA equalization. This phono stage continues the evolution of the award-winning 6000 Series – designed to make the most of the music that lies dormant in the grooves of an LP.
Audiolab Omnia – Always Connected
For networked audio playback, audiolab Omnia is equipped with an Ethernet port suitable for wired connection and the higher bandwidth requirements of high-resolution digital audio. For the most convenient access to wireless music playback, Omnia features Bluetooth aptX standard Bluetooth connectivity with high quality and low latency.
The Omnia’s Wi-Fi network is supported by DTS Play-Fi: an app-driven platform that offers high-quality wireless audio throughout the home, can stream Hi-Res music at up to 24-bit/192kHz, and is supported by more established audio brands than any other wireless platform.
The USB DAC section underlines audiolab’s multiple award-winning approach.
Based on the new ES9038Q2M, the SABRE32 reference DAC, ESS Technology’s 32-bit HyperStream II architecture, and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator enable ultra-low noise and high dynamic range.
No company knows more about how to generate the best from this technically excellent but demanding DAC technology than audiolab. The M-DAC was one of the first home audio components to include an ESS chip back in 2011, and the company has continued to work on its implementation ever since.
The audiolab Omnia decodes MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) via USB, SPDIF and Play-Fi. Invented by Meridian Audio co-founder Bob Stuart, MQA is a digital audio format designed for high-resolution music streaming, available through a subscription to Tidal, among others. Omnia unpacks MQA data – received via the USB input – in the full resolution of the original file and passes the signal through its DAC and preamplifier stages.
Setting up the speakers is a breeze and configuration is completely straightforward.
Simply connect your passive speakers to the audiolab Omnia and you’ll have access to a world of audio sources with impeccable playback. The discrete Class AB power amplifier delivers 50 W per channel into 8 ohms with a maximum current output of 9 amps, even with difficult loads. The output stage of the discrete power amplifier circuits uses a CFB (Complementary Feedback) topology, which ensures superior linearity and excellent thermal stability by maintaining quiescent current independent of the output transistor temperature.
An extensive 200VA toroidal transformer, followed by 4×15,000uF of reserve capacitance (60,000uF total), helps the amplifier safely control the music and enables excellent dynamic range. Omnia is more than just a class leader, it’s a class leader in amplifier performance!
For those who use not only speakers but also headphones, there is a special headphone amplifier with current-feedback circuit. Its gain bandwidth and high slew rate provide dynamic, detailed and responsive performance with all types of headphones.
Audiolab Omnia is a very user-friendly high-tech device.
Omnia has a TFT color display for graphical integration of your music sources and the playback formats. The audiolab Omnia display also uses a brand new protocol for a real-time VU meter display that adds a touch of hi-fi finesse to the functional and good-looking display interface. All this versatility would be worth little if it came at the expense of true HiFi sound quality. But audiolab has remained true to its roots and does not compromise on this point either.
