Audiolab 6000CDT CD Transport

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 Audiolab 6000CDT CD Transport is an ergonomic sound device designed to provide crisp sound output. The CD driver with an integrated amplifier is an innovative, performance-lead sound processing instrument.  The Audiolab 6000CDT transfers the music output faultlessly from a mix of analogue and digital sources to the connected speakers. The CD Transport uses class A/B amplification and delivers 50 watts per channel. The 32-bit DAC is fed by two coaxial and two optical inputs.

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. The Audiolab 6000CDT offers a maximum sampling rate of 96 kHz that can reproduce sound frequencies as high as 43.6 kHz.

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 6000CDT with dimensions 445(W) x 300(H) x 65.5(D) mm weighs only 7.2 kg. The CD transport comes with a remote control to help you operate the system even from a distance. Kick back on your comfy couch and play the 6000CDT with your favourite genre of music. The CD transport system is available in black or silver finishes to add a stylish look to your living room and interiors.

Audiolab 6000 CDT
Sunday, 31 May 2020  | 

This is an excellent CD transport , with fine build quality , a very substantial and quiet, in fact inaudible, CD playing slot mechanism . Optical and coaxial digital outputs are equally fine if used with reasonable quality interconnect . A good quality remote control is provided. An excellent match with any good DAC .

Solid build, elegant and sophisticated understated styling.
Slot loader works quietly and efficiently and very quiet in operation.
Very transparent transport - you hear just what is on the disc - no coloration at all...
Your only limitations are your dac and downstream equipment - this is the last cd transport you will need!
Excellent product and very reasonable price.

Perfect cd transport
Wednesday, 11 March 2020  | 

The design is straight forward functional, slick and elegant. The slot mechanism works smoothly and quietly. I measured electromagnetic radiation around it and it was much lower around the spinning mechanism, so I thing the faraday caging approach works well here.
The sound is great! Very analytical “in your face” transport, Extreme precision, pin point holographic staging, instrumental/voice timber provides a lot of presence and joy. No coloration what so ever. On quiet passages there was no audible background noise, black quiet. You get exactly what you have on the cd. I believe this is a great transport in any price point. it will not limit your dac so you better have a great dac ready for it.
Highly recommended, well done Audiolab
