Product Description

Save £200 on this open box Audiolab 8300CD, a combined pre amplifier, DAC and CD player, and a rare saving on this new model. Opened to show a customer in store (who ultimately chose a 8300A with 8300MB's - although you can use 8300CD with 8300MB's as well), it is as new, boxed and complete with the full warranty.

Press Reviews

  • 'The new machine’s 2.7in OLED display is larger and clearer than before, making it easier to read from a distance. Overall build quality is good and solid, while finish is up with the class leaders. This is a smart unit.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2015)
  • 'Some complained that the sliding drawer on the earlier model felt a little clunky, so the company has swapped it for a slot-loader. We’re pleased to report it’s quick to respond and not unduly noisy.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2015)
  • 'The number-crunching is still done by the highly regarded ESS Sabre32 9018 DAC. This chip is more usually seen on more upmarket products and comes with a mighty reputation for fine sound quality.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2015)
  • 'The player’s sonic signature remains consistent and appealing. Its presentation is certainly more refined than the old one, more tonally even and projected with a greater scale of sound. Sonic authority is improved too, particularly at low frequencies.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2015)
