”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 5 out of 5 by from Audiolab 6000cdt Had my player a couple of weeks now to replace my Arcam Alpha 5 which finally gave up after 25yrs. Absolutely love the sound coming from the 6000cdt. It feels weightier at the low end and yet light at the high Can't fault the sheffield branch. They were helpful and informative as ever. Wellbdone Richer Sounds and thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will make you want to listen to CDs again Bought about a month ago and very impressed. I’d read the reviews but wasn’t convinced that my CDs (in storage and not played for several years) would match their ripped Flac copies. They now do! The transport feeds a quality Linn Dac. If you’ve got a quality Dac and CDs gathering dust, then buy with confidence. This piece of kit is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I have had a NAD C541 CD player for quite a few years and was never very happy with the sound quality compared with vinyl. I found the sound to be rather harsh and unnatural and was not sure if there was a fault in the manufacture. It did have good reviews at the time I bought it. A couple of years ago I changed the dac in the NAD to a Cambridge Audio DacMagic100 which did improve the sound quality although I felt was still somewhat harsh. I decided to replace the NAD with the Audiolab 6000CDT CD transport connected to the Cambridge Audio dac. I was very pleased with the sound quality which was more detailed and full bodied. I was a bit concerned that the slot loading mechanism might scratch the CDs but this has not been a problem. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal to partner with the Audiolab 6000A amplifier I bought an Audiolab 6000A amplifier about 18 months ago, to replace an ancient Cambridge Audio A4 which had developed a fault, so when my CD player also developed a fault (skipping, and it was out of warranty) I bit the bullet after reading up quite a bit on it. I was bypassing my old cd player's DAC and going into the digital input of the amp anyway, so it made sense to spend the money on a transport only. Being from the same manufacturer I guess it works well with my amp. I like the minimalist looks and of course it matches well with the amp. I wouldn't like to make great claims for the sound quality as I have recently also upgraded my speakers, but I think it's quite an improvement on my old Marantz cd player (which I think cost about the same) and I have been enjoying the fine detail and soundstage on some classic albums which I don't think I'd appreciated before. I have both Audiolab units connected together with a 12V AV cable, but using the single remote to control both units can be a bit counterintuitive, having to switch from amp to CD before being able to skip tracks, or back to amp to change volume (I think that's what happens...) It's a highly rated unit and a no-brainer if you have an Audiolab amp - they work well together. Very solidly-built, like the amp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant bit of Kit I purchased the Audiolab 6000CDT and to be honest I wasn't sure if it would bring much difference it would bring. Boy was I surprised. I have listened to the CD's I always play to test out new kit and the sound reproduction was incredible. I honestly believe that what I was listening to was how the artists wanted their music to sound. I cannot recommend this CD transport highly enough
