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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb transport I read a review on this transport which was very favourable. I must say it is superb. I was using my Marantz cd63ki as a transport with the Audiolab qdac which sounded good. However with the cdt6000 the sound is a revelation. Space, air in the soundstage. Just makes you smile, makes cds sound superb.Absolute bargain. Staff st Plymouth were great. Able to demo the product to aid decision. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound, Superlative Build Quality This excellent CD transport has been at the top of my hi-fi shortlist for some time now and I'm delighted I got it. I couldn't afford the Naim player I was originally thinking about getting so opted for the next best thing- and this is it! Quick and easy to connect up and use. It's built like it's made from a block of iron, incredibly solid and sturdy construction at this price. The discs load smoothly into the slot and are swiftly accessed making them ready to play in an instant. Very clean, detailed but relaxing sound when paired with my Quad Vena II amp. I'm delighted with my purchase and full marks again to the lads at the Leicester shop for their helpful and enthusiastic service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of audio kit Bought this after seeing many positive reviews on the net. Wasn’t disappointed, fantastic sound stage crystal clear vocals hearing things I never did before needless to say all the old CDs are getting a airing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds amazing Been listening to the audiolab all day and it is clear there is a big difference. The new transport helps give a wonderful musicality to my CDs that was just not there before. The best way of describing it is like the difference between instant coffee and a well made espresso or Americano. Music is just more vibrant, visceral and enjoyable. I'll be honest I was dubious of standalone transports but this audiolab has well and truly changed my mind. Only downside was the box was missing the AAA for the remote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Transformative Transport I had read glowing reviews of this transport (check out The Audiophile Man) and so I was expecting this to be good. I wasn't ready for just how good this thing is. I had been using an Audiolab Q-DAC with my Meridian 504.20, and then Sony and Marantz players as transports when the Meridian broke. I have half a dozen pieces of music I use to test any system which I've been using for over 20 years. I heard new things on every one of those CDs. The sound stage open ups in a big way. The separation of players and instruments is expanded. You hear extra atmospherics and harmonics from saxophones or guitar you haven't heard before It feels like you can reach out and touch the drummer and his drum kit. I was blown away from the first track (which happened to be Binky's Beam from John McLaughlin Extrapolation) that I put on, and it just got better as the player bedded in. The unboxing experience is great too. This feels like a quality product from opening up the packaging. The remote control is big, but oozes quality. I realise the money has been spent on the innards and the outside has been built to a budget, but it still feels and looks great. For the price, this transport is a steal, and paired with a good DAC I reckon it sounds better than high end players costing well over the £1,000 mark. (And by the way, the guys and gal at Watford were fun, fast and efficient too.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive transport The 6000CDT is attractively styled and performs well and I'm very pleased with it. However, the remote control came without batteries and the mains plug didn't have a fuse fitted. Not a problem because I keep a stock of AA and AAA batteries and prefer to use my own higher quality mains cable. Audiolab should take note.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Separate cd transport very good Had a Cambridge CXC Transport which stuck on discs that had never been a problem before. Decided to upgrade to the Audiolab 6000cdt (Richer Sounds Glasgow were, after a couple of missed return calls, brilliant with whole transaction), allowed unit to run on repeat for 3 days and what a difference! Well constructed unit, good solid remote and excellent sound (am using a very good DAC/PreAmp- Graham Slee Majestic ). Have to say it was worth paying the extra as music now sounds much more real!!
