The 8300CD is the best CD player ever made by Audiolab, boasting even more flexibility than its multi-award winning predecessor.Now equipped with DSD file playback capability via the USB input, users are able to play SACD quality DSD files at full resolution and with faultless reproduction.

Building on that legacy, the DAC unit used is none other than the ESS9018 8 Channel Chip, the foundation of Audiolab's multi-award winning M-DAC, which in the 8300CD is now enabled to process an astonishing resolution from files up to384kHz/32-bit in addition to DSD256.

Audiolab's in-depth research and testing also led to the development of a new slot-loading CD drawer, which is part of the new, sleek modern design – simplistic and yet completely reliable when compared with inferior tray-style mechanisms.
