Description

The AudioLab 8300CD demonstrates a level of fine detail, transparency, soundstage depth, dynamic range and musical flow across all sources. It is both an exceptional CD player and a top-class external DAC/digital preamp, able to make the most of your CD collection. While delivering an enormous sonic boost to external digital audio sources it now extends its resolution to 32-bit/384kHz and DSD compatibility via USB. Built around the peerless ESS Sabre DAC, the AudioLab 8300CD extends resolution to 32-bit/384kHz and adds DSD compatibility via USB.

This model is no longer in production by the manufacturer.

We have one ex-demonstration unit available, and it comes with all original packaging.
