The arrival of Audiolab's 8300CDQ is likely to cause much grinding of teeth among its price rivals. It takes the recipe of the original 8200CDQ, polishes it and adds useful functionality that will stand it in good stead for many years to come.

    Product Information

    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 utilise 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.

    Now featuring MQA!

    Audiolab has upgraded its popular 8300CD DAC/CD player/preamp to the 83000CDQ by incorporating MQA decoding, to allow playback of MQA files and streams. Other capabilities remain as before, with twin coax and twin optical S/PFIC digital inputs, an AES/EBU balanced digital input and asynchronous USB input, the latter offering 384kHZ PCM sample rate and DSD compatibility. Coax, AES/EBU and optical digital outputs are also provided, alongside unbalanced and balanced analog outputs on RCA and XLR sockets, respectively.
