tony, bray ireland Pop, rock or dance fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
wide deep sound stage with very good insight,
Bad points:
socket for power cord could be deeper to give tighter fit, put on a cd from the 80's and it stopped reading halfway through, not the cd as my old meridian played it without any problems, cd drawer a bit thin and shallow.

Paul, Alicante Pop, rock or dance fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I'm by no means an audio/hi-fi expert but I have noticed a big difference in quality between the 8200 and the 8000 that I just sold . Very crisp clear sound . I love the chassis design and the remote control feels great . Overall I'm very happy .
Bad points:
Cost me an arm and a leg . Hopefully it'll last me 20 years or so .

Manufacturer's Description

While most CD players are designed purely for CD playback, the award winning 8200CD has been created with flexibility firmly in mind. Their architecture is perhaps best described as a ʻDAC + CDʼ, rather than as a CD player in the traditional sense. The DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Converter) is the cornerstone of their design, which is why Audiolab has chosen the Sabre 32-bit audio DAC from ESS Technology to carry out D-to-A conversion.

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 playersʼ 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.
