Designed to maximise your CD bang-for-buck, the Audiolab 6000CDT transport foregoes the DAC for exceptional digital ability.

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 Amazing improvement to CD sound quality Very happy with the difference the Audiolab 6000cd has made- going back to my cd's and finding detail which I had not heard before - amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does precisely what it says on the tin Absolutely delighted - traded my trust ATCAM CD82 for this. Worthwhile doing so. And, love the fact that it literally does precisely what it says it does - nothing more. No surplus buttons , knobs, or anything that is not required to play back CDs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very worthwhile upgrade I wasn’t sure if I would notice a significant difference in quality by purchasing the Audio Lab CD transport from Richer Sounds but decided to give it a go and take advantage of the try it at home offer during lock-down. I surprised myself because the general improvement in sound quality over my old Yamaha CD player is amazing. Clarity and general range of sound is much better and I am noticing things on my favourite CDs that I never noticed before. I also bought a reasonable quality coaxial lead to connect it up and assume that has helped towards the overall quality but only previously having the standard twin RCA phono leads I could not make a comparison. I have heard and read a lot about CD transports but never tried one before, I would say the Audio Lab is certainly a very worthwhile upgrade for anyone who currently uses a mid-quality HiFi CD player such as the Yamaha that I was using…Of course you will need a separate DAC or an amp with one built-in. The Audio Lab is very solid and if the case is anything to go by it feels extremely well made, maybe a little basic and no-frills but guess that keeping it simple is one of the main points of a dedicated CD transport. As usual excellent service from the staff at Richer Sounds and DPD, I also bought something that was not suitable for me and returning was arranged with no fuss…Many thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING SOUND QUALITY FROM THIS BUDGET CDT. fter 5 years of almost daily heavy usage, my fine old £1200 Cyrus CDi Player was starting to show it’s age and could really do with a service. However, browsing through the usual HiFi magazines, I became tempted by this Audiolab 6000 CDT Transport which has extremely good reviews and cost about the same as sending my CDi Player back to Cyrus for a full factory service. This scenario got me wanting to discover how good the Audiolab actually was and how it performed up against a top-notch player like the Cyrus. I have now bought the Audiolab Transport from Richer Sounds this week and connected it to my Emotiva PT100 PreAmp (It already has an AD1955 24bit DAC fitted), which is paired with the Emotiva A300 Power Amp knocking out approx 200wpc into my Dynaudio Emit M20 6ohm Speakers. I’ve now played several CD’s of various genres on this CDT an wow!!!, I'm really amazed at the sound quality which is very clean, dynamic ,open and detailed and more natural than I would expect from an inexpensive piece of kit like this. The overall sound is very different to that of the Cyrus CDi and to my ears the Audiolab CDT would now be my first choice as part of a CD based System. The Audiolab's design and build quality is very pleasing but the disc slot feels a bit grabby in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, well recommended. Some niggle details I bought this to replace a Marantz CD player that had lasted many years and died. Based on reviews I finally focused on Cambridge Audio, Marantz and Audiolab. In the end Audiolab got it because I was using the opportunity to update my amp and wanted more inputs, a remote and ideally a built in DAC. I'm running all this with old AR18S speakers and am very pleased with the result. As I said on my 6000A review, I am no audiophile but I wanted something something good as I am learning music and want to hear the detail in the recordings and I think I have achieved this. Now for the niggles. Firstly, as with the 6000A no batteries for the remote were supplied despite being in the instructions. Next, considering how much one pays for such kit the handbook is rather thin. For example I wanted more details on connecting the 12v trigger facility and only by looking at the diagram realised it has 2 outputs, but no input, whereas the 6000A has one input trigger and one output trigger and initially I thought the amp could control the player but that (illogically) does not seem to be supported. The text is very vague on this. After much consideration I chose black as the finish but it does show every mark and bit of dust so be warned. Overall I am very pleased with the transport and do recommended it despite the comments above and it being on the high end of my budget. However I don't think you can go wrong.

Richer Sounds service as usual first class and hopefully first player fault just a one off,as 6000cdt sound quality worth giving it a second chance.If not for problem with first player i would have given it 5 stars
