One of the best-equipped CD players in its class, the Audiolab 8300CD has the power to transform your system.


ESS Sabre DAC for superb sound quality
Renowned as one of the best DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertor) available, the 32-bit ESS Sabre at the heart of the 8300CD is a very special device. Banishing levels of jitter and distortion to the lowest levels possible, it gives the 8300CD a natural and pure sound with low background noise.Hyperstream modulator for punchy dynamics
Working with the ESS DAC, the Hyperstream modulator offers optimal transient response for a punchy, powerful sound.

New slot-load mechanism
Using a slot-load mechanism makes the 8300CD faster to load and cleaner in style. Doing without the traditional loading tray also reduces the chance of resonance, potentially improving sound quality still further. The new mechanism is also tolerant of imperfect discs that might be scratched or dirty, letting you play your most loved discs that offer players may refuse.

USB input with High Resolution Audio compatibility
With its USB input, you can enjoy high resolution music streamed from your computer. Compatible with data up to 32-bit/384kHz, the 8300CD is equipped not just for now but for the future of High Resolution Audio, too. The USB input now also accepts DSD (Direct Stream Digital) data, making the 8300CD compatible with an even wider range of file types.

More than just a CD player, it’s a digital hub for your complete system
As well as the USB input, the 8300CD is also equipped with one AES/EBU, two coaxial and two optical digital inputs. Connect up sources such as your TV, games console and set-top TV box and you can enjoy the power of the 8300CD’s awesome DAC with all your digital components. Powerful dynamics and ultra-low distortion can be experienced across the board.

Class-leading connectivity
Added to the USB and comprehensive selection of digital inputs, the 8300CD also fares extremely well on the output front. Digital outputs are available via AES/EBU, coaxial or optical means – covering every type you could wish for. On the analogue side, both analogue RCAs and balanced XLRs are included. Balanced XLRs give you professional standard connectivity with superior screening for reduced distortion.

Smooth new style

With its slot-loading mechanism, the 8300CD looks purer and cleaner in design. A choice of silver or black, blasted aluminium finish means that the player will fit in with a wide range of other hi-fi components.

Hear not just your CD collection but also your whole digital system in a whole new light; with the Audiolab 8300CD.
