This new Audiolab 8200CD looks pretty cool. Uses the ESS Sabre DAC, and can accept high res signals via USB, S/PDIF, and optical. A remote is included that sends a signal to the player which it can pass along to your media player on your PC. The 8200CDQ seems to be the same product but with preamp functionality build in.

Probably about $1,400. How does it stack up against the Oppo SE? Of course, the Oppo will play discs that this one cannot...so maybe it's more appropriate to ask how this stacks up to similarly priced CD players.

Looks interesting Dan. I'm always curious about new CDPs.

I posted an actual PDF copy of the news release that is provided as a link on Audiolab's website. It must've been hosted on the website of the company who is handling their marketing. I guess Ecoustics felt the need to remove the link and add in their own to their own page they created for the player. It's not quite as easy to find within my post because it almost looks like an ad, which are things I tend to ignore. But here it is, for anyone who missed it:
