With CD still being a ‘go to’ medium for many audiophiles, the 9000CDT is a premium oﬀering bringing digital music playback to match the beast that is the audiolab 9000A.
The 9000CDT is a dedicated CD transport that incorporates a high-end mechanism developed to suit the industry benchmarks set by audiolab performance philosophies.
Following in a long list of award-winning audiolab CD playback devices, the 9000CDT uses a high-precision optical system with an electronic data buﬀer for accurate and seamless CD playback. The read-ahead digital buﬀer to reduce disc-reading failures, helping the 9000CDT play scratched and damaged CDs that may be unreadable by conventional mechanisms.
World-Class Signal Clarity
To ensure a ﬂawless signal reaches the accompanying DAC, the coaxial output of the 9000CDT is fed from a diﬀerential line driver. The master clock is controlled by a high-accuracy crystal oscillator, enabling the digital output from both coaxial and optical sockets to exhibit vanishingly low levels of jitter (digital distortion).
Aluminium Housing and Electromagnetically Shielded
The low-friction loading tray, sturdy aluminium base and chassis of the 9000CDT work to tackle vibrations that are experienced due to the mechanics of a high-spin-velocity motor. Further, the transport is mounted in its own, electromagnetically shielded enclosure with a dedicated power supply. All of which contribute to the exemplary digital signal extraction, while the proven resonance reduction further improves performance and onward eﬀect in ancillary Hi-Fi equipment and signal chains.
In addition to the class-leading CD playback design, the 9000CDT also oﬀers digital music ﬁle compatibly via a dedicated USB 'Type A' connection, to the rear of the unit. Every signiﬁcant hi-res and lossless audio format is catered for, including WAV, AAC and WMA, as well as compressed legacy MP3 formats.
Sporting a 4.3” IPS LCD screen with a detailed but simple to use GUI, the 9000CDT oﬀers a vivid representation of information including system settings, format, folder, track details and other data.
