Audiolab design and engineer high quality, audiophile-grade hifi components. The company have claimed numerous awards and positive reviews over the years and continue to retain their position as one of the most highly regarded hifi companies on the market today.

Audiolab's 8300 series sees a number of improvements over its predecessor 8200 range with each component having been reviewed, assessed and redefined over a number of years worth of research. More efficient materials have been used, and have been implemented in a way that allows for an even better fidelity across the board. The look and feel of the series has also been updated, resulting in a cleaner, more modern aesthetic. The 8300 series raises the bar, and sees drastic upgrades to what was already an industry-leading range of hifi products.

The unit offers an unbeatable performance across a range of sources, and acts not only as a CD player, but as a DAC/digital pre-amplifier also. High quality componentry and expert engineering principles allow the 8300CD to to replay and decode digital signals with every sonic integrity left intact, resulting in a dynamic and transparent reproduction. 

The 8300CD is compatible with 32-bit/384kHz, and DSD via USB.
