”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 Nicely Future Proofed Great addition to my Hi-Fi. I’ve wasted time and money with loads of various CD players over the past few years trying to save money, when I add them up I’ve spent far more than the cost of this deck alone. With that in mind I decided to just cut my losses and buy a piece of kit that would do the job now and far into the future. This Audiolab deck removes any bottle neck from the source end of the chain, it inspires confidence that I’m getting the best out of my DAC, amp and speakers. I enjoy knowing that I can potentially improve aspects of the sound in the future by upgrading components further along the chain but I have faith that the data coming off the discs is being supplied as good as it possibly can. I appreciate the stunning build quality as well, it’s so solid, and it looks better in person than it does in any photos online. The OLED display is so crisp and looks quite special. My one criticism is that if you pause a track for too long, when you press play it just starts the disc again. Not the end of the world but just something I’ve noticed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal value! This CD transport system is extraordinary - screaming quality, but with the most wonderful sound. Compared to my old CD player, my CDs sound as if they have been replaced or upgraded in some way. I can hear notes that I did not know were there. It helps that it goes perfectly with the Audiolab 6000 amplifier. I can't recommend this CDT highly enough - and for the price - it's a steal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Haven't set it up yet as I'm waiting for a mains power chord to be delivered. Just want to thank Richer Sounds for the incredibly fast delivery. Ordered one day, arrived the next, they really care about the customer, and that is to be highly commended. Thankyou!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound quality! I bought this cd transport back in July. There was a bit of a wait because Audiolab being out of stock. All good things come to those who wait! This is a lovely sounding cd transport, great sound stage and very detailed without sounding harsh at the top end! Coupled with my Chord mojo this makes for one great player at a budget price! Highly recommend this player!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly brilliant Never had a cd transport before, despite swearing by separate pre/power amps for years I’ve always used Normal CD players. When the CD player in my second system packed up I thought I’d give this a go.... boy am I glad I did. Paired with a chord mojo straight into an old quad 99 power amp feeding monitor audio silver 200s this sang from the get go. Easily beating an aging but £2k+ player. Being so impressed I plugged it into my main system and the performance lifted again! Different but easily as enjoyable as the player usually residing there costing many times the price of 6000cdt + mojo. Build seems excellent for the money, fingers crossed it’s reliable (slot loading cds makes me nervous!) Best £375 I have spent on HiFi..... can’t believe it only cost that.... I am using an interconnect that cost more. Can’t recommend enough. Excellent delivery from RS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, sturdy, super sounding unit. I bought this earlier this month to connect up to my integrated amp via coax. Not much to say, it’s a CD transport that works and sounds great! CD loading is smooth and quiet and it’s ready to play within a few seconds. The remote while plastic feels sturdy and is responsive, and the display is clear enough to read from across the room without being so bright it’s distracting. I did end up covering the power status light (bright red!) with a small black masking circle but that’s just personal preference. Easy to recommend so far, will see how it’s holding up in a few years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous First of all, the looks of the Audiolab 6000 Series are absolutely stunning. There's such strong allure from the contrast between the light matt silver metal finish and the black oval OLED display (Though not really readable during sunny days). The design language used throughout the whole Audiolab product range was way more consistent than any other brand. It is a very good choice for entry audiophiles like me who cares about looks way too much, it is a piece of furniture to start with. Having been listening to CDs on my walkman and headphones for my whole life, this is my first set of Hi-Fi stereo. So I could not really compare this to other Hi-Fi CD players. Vinyl seems to have a renaissance these years, but growing up with CDs I am never attracted to them somehow. I guess CDs are like our generation's vinyls. You could never replace the clicking mechanism of the jewel case, the glaring reflections on the disc, not to mention the hyper futuristic hissing sound from the acceleration of the drive motor right after you pop the disc in. CDs' playback ritual all somehow resonates to the then vibrant cyber boom, when the tech world was full of bizarreness and not disciplined by triple cameras and large display. So after reading some reviews on what's happening with CD players now this is what I found out. So this product only reads CD, which means you will need a DAC in order make it sing. The reviews on CD transports basically covered this aspect. I paired this with the Audiolab 6000A and they work amazing (I am copying this to my review on the 6000A), though I did not hear sounds in my tracks that I have never heard before nor felt the music is live right in my room. Mainly I listen to electronic music, the most obvious improvement that I consciously picked up was the dynamic range, both with the speakers and with headphones. I could so tell the difference of feeling the bass with my skull and listening to the crisp tremble with my ear. This contrast is what I am looking for in most electronic music, and especially, it is so delightful in some IDMs when you go through a long trek of bass and then a few high notes. Another observation might be more visceral, that the music does become more smooth on some tracks. For a lot of ambient and noise music, the white noise part do sound more saturated, as in even for white noise, the increased reading capabilities might picked up tiny bit more samples. In general I am very please with this choice, but one tiny problem is the readability of the display under sunlight, but I guess that's too fussy to even bring up.
