This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:
Free loan machine (only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.
Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.
Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).
45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.
If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it...IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*
* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty. Terms and Conditions

Painstakingly developed, the Audiolab 9000N uses a bespoke streaming system for the ultimate in versatility and sound quality.

Streaming perfection from three years in the making
Developed over three years, Audiolab have produced a Linux-based operating system that’s feature-rich, versatile and, above all, a joy to use. The system is widely compatible with Hi-Res streaming services, Internet radio and UPnP/DLNA file streaming apps. With its ESS DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) and ARM quad-core processor, sound quality is class-leading, too. Premium build and finish makes it the perfect match for the Audiolab 9000A amplifier and any other quality hi-fi system.

Flagship sound quality
Based around a quad-core, ARM Cortex processor, the 9000N delivers seamless, rock-steady operation. Incorporating the ES9038PRO eight-channel DAC, digital to analogue processing extracts the maximum information possible, for highly detailed and lifelike sound. Proprietary circuits deliver unprecedented dynamics for a thrilling sound, while keeping distortion to the lowest possible levels. For premium quality music streaming, the 9000N is quite simply one of the best sounding players in its class.

High Resolution sound
Designed to maximise High Resolution music from the outset, the 9000N excels with Hi-Res music formats. Widely compatible with audiophile music formats, such as DSD, FLAC, Apple Lossless and WAV, the 9000N optimises your high-end music files. Sophisticated processing also makes the most of MQA content, with Tidal’s HiFi Plus tier sounding sensational.

Stream like a dream, with Audiolab’s dedicated app
Audiolab’s highly developed operating system makes streaming a breeze. With embedded access to Qobuz, Tidal and Spotify, the best streaming services are always close to hand. Internet radio via TuneIn is also built-in. The intelligent search functionality lets you create playlists, folders and album grouping. The app also recognises and displays MQA tracks, so you know when you’re listening to Hi-Res music tracks from Qobuz and Tidal services.

Also compatible with AirPlay, Spotify Connect and Tidal Connect
For ultimate streaming versatility, the 9000N is also compatible with a range of other streaming platforms. For integration with Apple devices, there’s Apple AirPlay 2. You can also use the Spotify Connect and Tidal Connect proprietary streaming apps for full compatibility with their ecosystems.

Roon Ready
Roon Ready components offer bit-perfect, Hi-Res music compatible sound over devices around your home. This ultimate multiroom music system works over Ethernet or wi-fi and has the massive advantage of being multi-brand, meaning that you’re not tied to one particular make of product.

Interactive LCD display
New for the 9000-series, the interactive LCD screen displays a wide range of interactive info. Album art is displayed in full colour, high-resolution and can be expanded to fill the screen. Alternatively, the screen displays VU metres or, for the least distraction, the screen can be dimmed or turned off.

Versatile connectivity
With a choice of balanced XLR or regular RCA phono outputs, the 9000N connects to a wide variety of amps. For the ultimate connection with the matching 9000A amplifier, with the least distortion possible, take the balanced XLR option. For digital amps and AVRs, the 9000N has optical and coaxial digital outputs.

High quality casing
With its aluminium base and chassis, the 9000N not only looks and feels good to use but also resists vibrations. Available in black or silver, it’s the perfect match for the Audiolab 9000A amplifier and 9000CDT CD transport.

Take your music streaming experience to the next level, with the Audiolab 9000N.
