Some good news this week from Audiolab who have announced a new 9000N network streamer in their high-end 9000 series. It joins the 9000A integrated amplifier and the 9000CDT CD transport in the range.

The Audiolab 9000N features a new highly efficient quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 chip that form the streamer’s ‘brain’.  A Linux-based operating system drives the processor.  Inside there is an ESS9038PRO, one of the highest-end DACS in ESS Technology’s current range.  Streaming is controlled through Audiolab’s own App or through a UPnP/DLN App, like mconnect, used here at HF&MS, or BubbleUPnP.

The 9000N can support PCM files up to 32-bit/768kHz and native DSD up to 22.5MHz (DSD512).  It supports a full, three MQA file unpack too.  The Audiolab 9000N has Tidal Connect, Spotify Connect, Qobuz, TuneIn Radio built in as well as being Roon ready and offering AirPlay 2.

The Audiolab 9000N network streamer is available from mid-September in a choice of black or silver, at an RRP of £2,499 inc. VAT.

About Audiolab

Formed in the early 1980s by Philip Swift and Derek Scotland, Audiolab earned worldwide acclaim with the 8000A – an integrated stereo amplifier that became a classic ‘step-up’ from the budget models of the time. Now part of the IAG brand family, Audiolab’s reputation has been further enhanced by its hugely respected DAC circuitry, earning the company a plethora of awards since the launch of the 8200CD and M-DAC in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Today, the company continues to make class-leading source and amp components across its highly acclaimed 6000, 7000, 9000 and M-DAC product lines, delivering crisp, clean ergonomics and superb sound with everything from vinyl to the latest digital formats.
