The Audiolab 8300CD is a high end CD Player and DAC delivering a pure and detailed performance.
The 8300CD is built for audio quality and versatility. The 8300 delivers a clean and detailed sound, thanks to decoding by a highly rated Sabre 32-bit DAC. The CD drawer has been upgraded from the previous model. Other improvements include the ability to decode DSD audio via the USB input.
Analogue output is via standard RCA/phono or XLR Balanced outputs which take advantage of the 8300's balanced circuit design. Digital inputs mean the 8300CD can also be used as a stand-alone DAC. With two optical and two coaxial digital inputs, as well as an AES input via balanced XLR, multiple digital devices can be connected. There's also a USB input for direct connection to a computer, allowing you to bypass the usually inferior sound cards found in most computers and utilize the 8300's high-end DAC for superior sound. If you have a large computer-based music collection, the Audiolab will let you get the most from it. Uncompressed file formats such as FLAC will sound stunning.
Build quality is up to the usual Audiolab high standards. With a sturdy chassis and smart aluminium fascia the 8300CD looks as good as it sounds. Its stylish and well laid out remote control completes the package.
Whether used as a full CD player or stand-alone DAC, the Audiolab 8300CD will deliver a breathtaking performance that you'll want to enjoy again and again.
