Our Collection

Audio Research CD8 CD Player (Pre-owned)

Ex-Demo / Pre-Owned

Original RRP - £9,500 / Our Price - £5,000

This is a pre-owned item that was traded in with us when the customer upgraded to the latest CD9 model.

It is in excellent condition. The only blemishes are the fading around the buttons on the front. Checked and tested and works perfectly. We have the original remote and instruction manual, but no packaging so collection is required. Roughly 5-6 years old.

Audio Research valve CD players are exceptional. They are built to last and give extremely high level of sound quality. Very musical, they bring the music to life. They are one of the world premier hifi brands and this is an audiophile level piece of equipment. 

Upon its release in 2010, The Audio Beat magazine praised the CD8 by saying "with the Reference CD8, Audio Research reasserts an understanding of digital technology that equals the mastery on display with its best preamps and amps. While I did a great deal of listening to the CD8 in reviewer mode -- picking apart its character, parsing every detail, and closely comparing it to its competition -- I found that it was very easy to get lost in its sound. Recording after recording sounded distinct and musically consonant, and even with such extreme midrange honesty, the CD8 didn't call attention to itself. It wasn't gentle or aggressive, warm or cool, lean or fat, and for this reason it will help achieve a happy sonic result in many, many audio systems."

We have this CD player in store and available for demonstration.
