6000N Play

The audiolab 6000N Play is a wireless audio streaming player
and is the latest member of the acclaimed audiolab 6000 Series of components.
Featuring DTS Play-Fi® Technology, music can be streamed over your wireless
network in high-resolution format and can be easily expanded to a multi-room
system if required. You can stream from any source on your wireless network,
including smart-phones, tablets or PCs as well as a NAS Drive.


The 6000N Play is the ideal way to add high-performance
wireless streaming to any home audio system

The 6000N Play combines the versatility of the DTS Play-Fi
wireless audio platform with Audiolab’s sonic know-how to deliver a
great-sounding Wi-Fi streaming solution that is simple to set up and use. Users
can stream from any source on their wireless network – smartphones, tablets,
PCs and Macs, as well as NAS drives and music servers – utilizing the 6000N
Play’s dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi. It also connects wirelessly with other
Play-Fi-equipped devices, enabling a fully synchronized multi-room set-up.

Providing access to a wealth of internet music services:
Spotify, Tidal, HDtracks, Deezer, Qobuz, Amazon Music, Napster, TuneIn,
iHeartRadio and SiriusXM, to name a few. Users might choose to browse a radio
guide listing thousands of stations and podcasts, or stream from a home media
server with DLNA compatibility. The 6000N Play is hi-res audio enabled, capable
of receiving data up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution over Wi-Fi – well in excess of
CD quality – without transcoding or down-sampling.


The 6000N Play incorporates a high-quality DAC
(Digital-to-Analogue Converter), utilizing the same ES9018 Sabre32 Reference
chip found in the highly acclaimed Audiolab 6000A integrated amplifier. ESS
Technology’s 32-bit HyperStream architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator,
coupled to Audiolab’s own circuitry, delivers ultra-low noise and high dynamic
range. The circuit design also draws inspiration from Audiolab’s 6000CDT CD
transport, incorporating the same isolated power supply with a high – efficiency
toroidal transformer for optimum signal purity.

The inclusion of a DAC stage ensures the 6000N Play can be used with any audio
system – simply connect the RCA analogue outputs to a regular amplifier, or a
pair of active speakers. Alternatively, take a digital feed (optical or
coaxial) direct to an external DAC, or an amp with digital inputs such as Audiolab’s
6000A. Naturally, the 6000A is an ideal partner for the 6000N Play; when these
two components are paired digitally, an optical or coaxial cable is used to
convey the audio signal while a supplied USB control cable enables control of
the 6000N Play via the 6000A’s remote handset.


Direct Streaming

The 6000N Play is configured and operated via the Play-Fi
app, available for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire phones and tablets, as well as
Apple and Android smartwatches and Windows PCs. It can also stream directly
from Spotify via Spotify Connect, and is DLNA and UPnP compliant. There are
minimal controls on the component itself – just the standby button and a set of
six’ preset’ buttons. These presets operate exactly like those on a DAB or FM
tuner; simply select an internet radio station, or a playlist from a compatible
streaming service, and store it as a preset for speedy access – no app

This operational simplicity, coupled to Play-Fi’s
versatility, is key to the 6000N Play’s appeal. For some, it is the perfect way
to stream music from the likes of Spotify, Tidal and Deezer, with all the
additional functionality of Play-Fi including multi-room audio. For others, it
is simply the best way of adding radio to their hi-fi system, with the huge
choice of stations available via the internet – the traditional
hi-fi’tuner’component, reinvented for the streaming age.
