In Reply to: RE: What transport mechanism is Audiolab using? posted by Mike K on December 29, 2020 at 08:12:13
The 6000 and the 8300 do share the same transport mechanism. The 6000 is a transport only without a built in DAC. The 8300 is a CD player.
I have the 6000CDT transport and I think its quite good. I too was looking for a good player that wouldn't break the bank. The Audiolab 6000CDT coupled with a Schiit Gungnir multibit has been one of the best sounding that I have personally owned.
I am wondering if the 'darker' nature of the unit will be too much for my tube integrated. I really appreciate the smooth tube sound but I don't want to go too far into a 'darker' sound which is what I think this unit will give. I just don't know, and I have no way to audition.
Have you found a cdp ?
I just picked up a used Cary cdp from Audiogon, but I regard this as a stop-gap purchase more than
a decisive acquisition. I was really looking for just a transport, but the added capabilities of the Cary
-it also plays SACD and HDCD-prompted the purchase.
I am uncertain and unsettled about the future as my main system is presently belly-up:
Primaluna int-amp back at the distributor, dead Bel Canto cdp, dead Innuos streamer/server.
I don't know where this ends up. Thank goodness for my Naim Muso2, which has surprised
me with its usefulness and its sound quality.
