Audiolab 6000N Play: Award-winning wireless streaming audio player

The Audiolab 6000N Play is a wireless streaming audio player in the award-winning Audiolab 6000 series. It features DTS Play-Fi® technology and can receive and stream wireless music in high-resolution formats, allowing you to easily set up multi-room systems if necessary. You can receive music from any source connected to a wireless network – from smartphones, tablets or computers, as well as from NAS drives.


The Audiolab 6000N Play is based on technologies borrowed from the 6000A amplifier and 6000CDT transport. The streamer is based on a reference class DAC ESS Sabre32 ES9018K2M. The Audiolab 6000N Play also boasts an isolated power supply, which was borrowed from the 6000CDT CD transport. The new product supports streaming audio format 24 bit/96 kHz. Wired Ethernet connection for high throughput will provide quality up to 24bit/192kHz.


The DTS Play-Fi platform offers a wide selection of services from around the globe – Spotify, Tidal, HD Tracks, Deezer, Amazon Music, Napster, KKBox and Sirius XM are just a few. You can also use the radio guide with thousands of Internet stations and podcasts, or stream music from your DLNA-compatible home media server. The Audiolab 6000N Play is based on technology borrowed from the Audiolab 6000A and 6000CDT, so it produces music with an outstanding level of quality.

“While music streaming has already gained popularity in the music industry and is now ubiquitous in hi-fi manufacturers’ catalogues, it is clear that not all audiophiles are ready to recycle their other sources. And the Audiolab 6000N Play, with its price, modest design and streaming capabilities, doesn’t ask you to do that.”


“The Audiolab 6000N Play is a great, affordable way to bring streaming to your audio system without sacrificing sound quality – and with the added bonus of being able to sneak into your hi-fi rack unnoticed. Quite frankly, this is the best budget solution we have had the pleasure of encountering.”
