The Audiolab 8200 series marks a new generation of products for a storied British brand. The designers have worked diligently to maintain the ethos of the brand while infusing a level of musicality and modernity into an exciting new line of products.

The construction of the chassis exhibits an extraordinary attention to detail, including perfectly fit aluminum panels that not only add to the quality of build, and design, but also improves the sound quality by reducing magnetic noise. The same attention was given to the internals of each unit, which uses only the finest quality audiophile components. Every product has been designed to the highest standard without compromise.

A new range of digital products allow for extraordinary flexibility for system building, yet maintains Audiolab’s simplicity in form and function. A wealth of digital inputs including asynchronous USB will keep Audiolab’s DAC/CD units playing music libraries regardless of how it may be stored, today and in the future. The 8200 series introduces a range of products that users will continue to enjoy for years to come.

In addition to the 8200CD, the 8200CDQ adds full preamp functionality whilst maintaining the same chassis size as the 8200CD. The existing digital inputs are joined by three line-level analogue inputs, providing source selection and volume control in the analogue domain. The preamplifier section is fully balanced and all analogue input signals are converted to balanced form, helping to reduce distortion and noise. Class A gain structures are present throughout, and users may choose between preamplification in the analogue or digital domain in respect of the digital inputs. In addition, the 8200CDQ adds a direct-coupled, discrete, Class A headphone amplifier, accessible via a socket on the front panel.

John Westlake leads the design team responsible for developing the 8200CD and 8200CDQ. Johns technical skills have delivered award-winning digital audio products spanning the last two decades and a variety of companies have benefitted from his expertise. John is convinced that the 8200CD and 8200CDQ are the finest CD players he has ever designed.
