Audiolab re-wrote the rulebook with the introduction of the 8200 series. The 8200CD was a stand out product and won numerous awards. One of the first CD Players to give you digital inputs and access to the DAC inside. 

With the introduction of the 8300 series Audiolab needed to step up the range again, and they have. Keeping with the iconic Audiolab styling, they have created a fresh look that would not seem out of place with legacy Audiolab products. A more mature sound is present throughout the 8300 range but with a familiar feel. 

Without a doubt, one of the best evolutions of an already great product. 

The 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.
