A quick update regarding future reviews. Quite a few readers here and social media platforms, including YouTube, have noted the arrival of the 9000CDT from Audiolab


They have all given me a nudge in the ribs about a possible review and I did say that I had placed a review request with the company, Audiolab.

Well, it’s on the way! Not only is it on the way but – so the company says – I will have the very first UK review of the machine! Yay me, right? 😉


But that ain’t all. I may also have the first UK review of the Audiolab 6000A amplifier upgrade, the 9000A too! (I’ve never used so many exclamation marks in my life.)

If that does come to pass (and they arrive in one piece) then I’ll probably do one a week. So expect a full review of the 9000CDT first as a video review with a text version to follow. That initial video version should arrive a week on Sunday. Then the 9000A the following Sunday.

Well…who’d have thought it?

    Always enjoy and look forward to your reviews, Paul
    After your reviews of the Bluosnode Streamer /Dac and The Audiolab 6000 Transport …I made the respective purchases.
    Thank you as I bought with confidence and am very pleased with their performances . I do have them paired together.

    As a very impressed 6000CDT owner I’m keen to hear your thoughts on how the 9000CDT compares Paul

    looking forward to it, Paul. I must say that I am very happy with my 6000 cdt but if the 9000 is a distinct upgrade ( and it is a tray loader, which would be my preference) who knows….
    Keep up your good work!

    I am really waiting your review of the 9000a. To be honest I bought the 6000A because of your review 🙂

      Thanks Gustavo – that should will be out a week Sunday. Or a week tomorrow if you’re on Patreon. And thank you for reading my reviews!

    Nice, looking forward to your reviews as I’m sure many other 6000 series owners are.

    I would have been very interested in this CDT until I saw the very limited output options.
    BNC & XLR outputs probably would have pushed me to a purchase.
    IMO: This limited output selection probably hurt sales for Audiolab.
    PS: I did read your full review. Thanks for that.
