Based on the Audiolab 8300CD, the Audiolab 8300CDQ Utilises the existing technology and of its predecessor offering all the same level of detail, transparency and dynamic range. It is both an exceptional CD player and a top-class external DAC/digital preamp, able to make the most of your CD collection. While delivering an enormous sonic boost to external digital audio sources, and the same as Audiolab’s 8300CD, it extends its resolution to 32-bit/384-kHz and DSD compatibility via USB.

Taking it to the next level Audiolab’s 8300CDQ now includes MQA technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording. MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream or download.
