”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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply astonishing sound ! I got the CDT to compliment the 6000a amp - but have also tried it connected to my home AV amp - the sound is really very detailed and wide - it really blew me away with the quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of equipment. Great value as this is a cut down model of a more expensive CD player. Only has digital and optical outputs. Good sound and enjoying it with my Audiolab amp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from audiolab transport I had previously been using an old mega planet CD player into my very good DAC. It was showing its age and starting not to read discs properly so I bought this transport. The sound improvement was far greater than I was expecting and I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I purchased this product as a Christmas gift for my son. I have had Audiolab amplifiers and CD players myself over the years and always found them to be great products. The Audiolab is warm sounding and brings the music to life. It is also very sleek with clean lines and looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic, high end sound I bought this after reading magazine articles and watching you tube reviews. I use this with a chord mojo and Sennheiser SD600’s and am astounded by the sound quality. There is excellent sound staging and the audio quality is what I would expect from a CD transport costing multiples of this one!
