With billions of CDs in circulation, Mitchell & Johnson’s have launched their new British-made CD player.

Mitchell & Johnson, the London-based Hifi manufacturer has formally launched the new S800 CD player, a (proudly) British-designed and manufactured disc-spinner that, say the British brand, flies the flag for specialist UK manufacturing in the Brexit era.

The new £1,299 player, which was first unveiled in prototype form at February’s Bristol Hi-Fi Show, is now available in production form via Mitchell & Johnson’s global dealer network. Handmade in the Midlands, the new S800 CD player is one of only a handful of British-made CD players and offers the benefits of homegrown production.

ESS Sabre DAC Chip

Entirely engineered in the UK, the new S800 CD player is based upon the industry-leading ESS Sabre DAC chip, optimised for 44.1kHz replay, which offers high-performance digital-to-analogue conversion from the S800’s dual stereo RCA and balanced XLR outputs. The S800’s precision-machined casework, which has a solid aluminium fascia panel, is entirely UK-produced. A high-performance European-sourced CD drive takes care of disc control and data extraction.

Noratel Xtraquiet Transformer

Offering value for money for a handmade British CD player, the S800 also includes an audiophile-grade linear power supply with a high-quality Noratel Xtraquiet transformer for low-noise operation.

Connectivity options include both balanced and unbalanced outputs, plus Mitchell & Johnson’s 12-volt Power Link provides synchronised power on/off when used with compatible partnering equipment, such as the September 2018-launched S800 preamp and S815 stereo power amp (both £1,299 each).

UK Based Design And Manufacturing

Significantly, the S800 CD player and wider 800 Series represents a major milestone for Mitchell & Johnson, as the first products to launch following a significant managerial restructure, brand repositioning and strategic transition to exclusively UK-based design and manufacturing, attracting considerable financial investment during the last two years.

The S800 CD player is available now in satin black or satin silver priced at £1,299
