With the 8300CD at its core, Audiolab’s latest model, the 8300CDQ offers the same levels 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 like the 8300CD, it extends its resolution to 32-bit/384-kHz and DSD compatibility via USB.
Taking it to the next level the 8300CDQ 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.
