Very quick shipment from Crutchfield and got an incredible Black Friday deal. So far, so good with the Omnia. Worried it might be a bit underpowered, but it's pushing my Martin Logan Preface towers pretty well. Since it can function 3 ways - as an integrated, pre or power amp - I can always add a separate power amp later. The all-in-one convenience is welcome. No complaints, and I knew going in it has volume buttons instead of a knob, but a knob would be better functionally.
Pros: Easy Set-up, Solid Build
Cons: No Volume Knob

It works great with my phonograph while also allowing me to enjoy my old CD collection. Plenty of power for my speakers.
Cons: Push button volume, display, and input can be laborious sometimes.

It sounds excellent and is fun to listen to all day long. I've owned many a lot more expensive integrated amplifiers, Hegel, Macintosh, Parasound and others but I had never heard of Audiolab until I watched a youtube video where it was powering a comparison of speakers. When I got it I was surprised to discover how much I like the Audiolab sound. It's easy to listen to, it's detailed, refined, muscular with a nice body and heft. I love the sound of electric guitars on this amp! It works with all musical genres. Rock. Classical. Ambient. The CD and DAC are also excellent and a joy to listen to. Somehow this combo makes me enjoy music more than some very expensive separate components I own. Downsides are the small buttons and absence of a volume knob, but if something sounds good that's what I care about most.

Too slow to volume up or down and between sources, one second lag from remote to receiver and and more than 5 times needed to click in order to get from CD to OPT2. Second star just for nice looking system. Not recommending.

Excellent integrated all in one amp. It has everything I needed. For the money there are few if any that can compete without having to add another zero. It sounds really good. Would highly recommend.
