”No two ways about it, the Audiolab 6000CDT is a CD transport bargain – a true quality item at a price that often doesn’t buy you very much of anything.” ’Hi-Fi Choice’ – Recommended.

Transport only, for your choice of DAC or digital amp

As a transport only, the Audiolab 6000CDT comes without a built-in DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor). This not only saves you money but also gives you the freedom to choose your own DAC or partners the CD transport with a digital amp, such as the matching Audiolab 6000A.

Chose the output that’s best for you
Featuring both optical and coaxial digital outputs, the 6000CDT works with almost all DACs and digital amps.

Top quality, slot-load mechanism
Using the slot-load mechanism from the highly acclaimed 8300CD, makes this player faster to load and cleaner in style. Doing without the traditional loading tray also reduces the chance of resonance, potentially improving sound quality still further. Using a read-ahead digital buffer, it’s also more tolerant of imperfect discs that might be scratched or dirty, letting you play your most loved discs that other players won’t.

Smooth style
With its slot-loading mechanism, the 6000CDT looks pure and sleek in design. A choice of silver or black, blasted aluminium finish means that the player will fit in with a wide range of other hi-fi components.

Hear the true potential of your CDs, with the stunning Audiolab 6000CDT.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound but how reliable will this one be. This is actually the third one if had in two and a half years so I'm pleased I had the insurance. When it is working, it sounds fantastic and the advanced tracking means that it has never jumped once ever. Let's see how reliable this one is?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CD transport I bought the Audiolab 6000A amp and needed a CD player. These two work perfectly together and are a significant step up from from previous CD with internal DAC. The sound is much more distinctive and separated. The only problem was I took my own speakers to RS but the sound from a potential new set was so much better that I now need to spend more money there. The guys are excellent in knowing the products and try their utmost to demonstrate the best equipment in your price range for the sound that you want to achieve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit Bought this because I still like to spin discs even though I use my naim ndx streamer and XP’s power supply , connected it up to the ndx and started playing discs , it was a bit harsh out of the box but after running it for about 24 hrs it started to settle down I’ve now been running it for around a fortnight and it sounds fantastic , my only regret is I should have bought one sooner it’s an absolute bargain at this price , I’ve connected it to my ndx with a chord shawline rca which just gets out of the way and let’s you hear the music , the service from richer sounds was first class as well and when I come to upgrade my dac I know where I will be heading

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive way to get top cd player I bought the Audiolab 6000CDT as a way to upgrade my CD player without spending a fortune. Using it through the DAC in my Marantz PM7000N it has superb response and produces results befitting a CD player at twice the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb I bought the 6000a amp in April 2020 and found it to be incredible. Since then, I've been saving for the 6000cdt. Having finally bought one, it hasn't disappointed. Despite the convenience of connecting my ipod to the 6000a, the 6000cdt proves that cd is still king with my system. Every disc I play sounds sublime. Just buy one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wider soundstage plus good clarity and separation. I was interested in the current Popular Marantz all in one CD Player, but wanted something that gave more. Reading a few reviews, I found out I could just connect this CD Transport to my current Amplifier with its in-built DAC or connect to an external DAC. One review stated that connected to a £200.00 external DAC the performance out-performed an all in on £1,000.00 CD Player. I connected the Transport via the Coaxial to my Amplifier. I loved the sound it gave, but found on new and older CD's it would occasionally skip. Reversing back through the same track and repeating, there was no skip. I gave it a few weeks, but still had the issue. I fiund online that just one person had the same issue and that it may be down to buffering issues. I contacted Richer Sounds and they did an exchange with no fuss When I connected the new unit the the same way via Coaxial, I had the same skip fault as previous. I decided I wanted to keep the unit and dug out my old external DAC which was one of the first issued in the late nineties. Brilliant, connecting this way, there are no issues with skipping at all. I am so pleased and like the sound even more as it is quite livelier and has a bit more punch too. I have decided to keep this unit as it works fine with the external DAC and sounds better than using the Coaxial Connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great HiFi/TV Shop I always buy from Richer Sounds as they really know their products. Reciently purchased an Audiolab CDT 6000 CD Transport. It makes CD's sound fantastic. Great products and great service what more can you ask for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jaw dropping sound I bought my Audiolab 6000 CDT 10 days ago , having read a number of reviews. I already had an Arcam CDS27 which is about 5 years old and a good player(£700). The CDT walks all over the Arcam and then some. The effect on vocals is remarkable - you get a presence and clarity that gives you a sense of the space in which the vocal has been recorded - a presence that I have not heard on any other digital replay. Neither CD recording on my Innuos NAS unit nor the Tidal streaming, via Naim Nova come close(good as they are). For the money this is a veritable bargain, and teamed with the Naim inbuilt DAC produces great instrument placement...and also little details that most reproduction misses. CD collection being revisited, leaving even my high spec turntables with some downtime! Highly recommended.
