"If you are seeking to move to a dedicated CD
transport you should definitely audition
the 6000CDT for its smooth operation,
sleek looks and constantly robust playback."

CD player / Transport - Audiolab 6000CDT
OUR VERDICT - True to form, the Audiolab 6000CDT delivers a fine performance that’s impossible to criticise at its price. Matched with our recommended System comprising of the Audiolab 6000A Amplifier and Acoustic Energy AE 109 speakers, the CDT flourishes.
Florence + The Machine’s You’ve Got The Love sounds crystal clear, astonishingly nimble and with a staggering amount of detail. The CDT breezes through the upbeat rhythm, while Florence Welch’s soaring vocals sound refined and smooth with no hint of clipping or brightness.
The Inception soundtrack shows off just how nuanced and subtly dynamic the 6000CDT is. It’s not just about the deep bass, but also about revealing the varied textures and layers of that rumbling bass note.
It’s a remarkably precise performer, ripping through the rapid-fire drum intro on Van Halen’s Hot For Teacher with effortless speed and accuracy. Each instrument is easily placed in the spacious soundstage, and we love how musical and fluid the transport sounds.
Despite fierce clarity and control, the 6000 CDT never sounds clinical or forced. It’s a truly accomplished performer that you could listen to endlessly.- THOROUGHLY RECOMMENDED
The 6000CDT is a dedicated CD transport incorporating the same slot-loading mechanism as audiolab’s flagship CD player, the 8300CD. Extremely robust and reliable, it uses a read-ahead digital buffer to reduce disc-reading failures, able to play scratched and damaged CDs that are unreadable by conventional mechanisms.
The 6000CDT uses slot charge mechanism first introduced in the popular Audiolab 8300CD series. Upgraded with a digital buffering technique, the CD Transport avoids disc-reading failures. It also diminishes the errors whilst reading the discs of different configurations. The rigid transports are designed to hold, spin and read the disc while keeping them scratch-less. This CD driver features an inbuilt digital clock which is controlled by a temperature compensated crystal oscillator that ensures minimum jitter in optical and coaxial outputs.
With an output impedance of 75 ohms, the CD Transport device ensures a healthy power transmission system. The 6000CDT features a 12V trigger output and auto standby mode to avoid excess heating and power consumption. With a maximum power consumption of 20W and standby power consumption of less than 0.5W, it is an energy efficient device. The CD transport comes with a remote control to operate the system even from a distance. The sleek finishes enable elegant integration into your listening room of choice.
