Design
Attention To Detail
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.

Simplicity And Functionality
the 8200 Series allows for extraordinary flexibility for system building, yet maintains Audiolab’s simplicity in form and function from stereo setups to full home cinema systems. 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

Not Your Average CD Player
The 8200CD and 8200CDQ are best described as ‘DAC and CD’ due to their flexibility with digital inputs and is not ‘just a CD player’ in the traditional sense. The ESS Sabre 32-bit DAC is used.

The 8200CD and 8200CDQ accept data right up to 24-bit/96kHz via USB, with bit depth and sampling frequency shown in real time on the player’s LCD display. In addition, both players enjoy extremely low levels of jitter thanks to the DAC’s unique coupling with Audiolab’s proprietary, discrete master clock, to the benefit of all forms of digital audio. Once converted to analogue, music signals are passed through balanced, discrete, Class A FET output stage and on to the user’s amplifier either via single-ended RCA or fully balanced XLR outputs. Four-layer PCB (Printed Circuit Board) construction and 34 regulated power supplies help to maintain optimal signal quality throughout.

In addition 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.

Audiophile Grade Sound In 7.1 Setups
The 8200 Series includes the 8200AP - a 7.1 HDMI 1.4 complained analogue / digital preamplifier and surround sound processor focused on simplicity, ease of use and of course brilliant sound quality. The 8200AP has an impressive roster of inputs - analogue and digital with two-channel stereo modes to full scale 7.1 operation.

The circuit design and component selection use a combination of Cirrus Logic CS494003 Dual DSPs taking care of surround sound decoding, LPCM processing and bass management and 8 high performance 24-bit/192kHz D/A Delta-Sigma converters. Post-DAC filtering is handled by an array of active filters built around high-end FET audio op-amps featuring a linear phase response for maximum audio clarity.

Power and Precision
Our series of power amps within the 8200 Series demonstrates our objective to reproduce audio with a clean current, sufficient power to drive any loudspeaker comfortably and with plenty of power in reserve for dramatic dynamic swings. Included in the series is the 8200P -100W x 2 stereo power amp, 8200M -125W power amp and the 8200MB - 250W power amp. All models use our Magnetic flux isolation system for the purest of audio outputs.

Flexibility is a key facet of all our hi-fi products. For example, A single pair of 8200Ms may be used in conjunction with a preamp in a two-channel stereo system; or several pairs may be daisy-chained to further improve headroom in bi-amped or even tri-amped systems. They’re ideal for use in high-performance home cinema systems too, combining dramatic power and subtle musicality in thoroughly engaging fashion.

In terms of sound quality, the 8200MB is an exceptional performer. Its high current ability enables it to drive the toughest of loads; even the most difficult speakers are driven cleanly without the loss of dynamics. The supreme neutrality that characterises Audiolab hi-fi components shines through, coupled to effortless reserves of current to call upon whenever required, so all you hear is the music – pure and unrestrained. Supplying a choice of both balanced XLR and single-ended RCA inputs, the 8200MB is a power amplifier of enormous ability. Anyone seeking a flexible, compact, high-power monoblock for a stereo or multichannel system need look no further.
