Audiolab 6000N Play Music Streamer

Audiolab extends its award-winning 6000 Series with the excellent 6000N Play – a network audio player that adds extensive wireless streaming facilities to any high-quality audio system.

The Audioab 6000N Play Wireless Audio Streaming Player combines the versatility of the DTS Play-Fi wireless audio platform with Audiolab’s sonic expertise to deliver a top quality Wi-Fi streaming solution that is simple to set up and use. Stream from a multitude of sources including smartphones, tablets, PCs and Macs, as well as NAS drives and music servers. The 6000N Play is fully compatible with other DTS Play-Fi certified devices making it very easy to expand your music into other rooms for a fully synchronised multi-room set-up.

Audiolab's 6000N Play provides access to a wealth of internet music services such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz, Amazon Music, TuneIn and iHeartRadio. Internet radio provides easy access to a huge choice of different stations and podcasts or you can 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), utilising the same ES9018 Sabre32 Reference chip as found in the award winning 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.

Audiolab 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 required.

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.

What Hi-Fi? Awards 2020 winner. Great sounding streaming solutions needn’t cost a lot
The 6000N Play is a great way of turning an existing stereo set-up into one with streaming at its centre. With a good feature, Hi-Res audio support and a sound that offers plenty of detail, clarity and precision, it's enough to give Bluesound's Node 2i a run for its money
