While most CD players are designed purely for CD playback, the award winning 8200CD has been created with flexibility firmly in mind. It’s architecture is perhaps best described as a "DAC + CD", rather than as a CD player in the traditional sense.

The DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Converter) is the cornerstone of it’s design, which is why Audiolab has chosen the Sabre 32-bit audio DAC from ESS Technology to carry out D-to-A conversion.


Product Description


The provision of digital inputs – optical, coaxial and USB – means the 8200CD can be used to deliver top-quality sound from all kinds of digital sources, including audio files from computers and other media devices. Thus, all music benefits from the superb sound quality produced by the players' DAC and discrete Class A output stages.

Comprised of over 1700 components using precision SMT manufacturing on a 4 layer PCB, the Audiolab 8200CD is the most advanced electronic design in Audiolab’s impressive history.
