It’s a high-quality, high-resolution (24-bit/192kHz) Cirrus Logic CS4398 affair that’s capable of dealing with better-than-CD-quality digital files. It can be accessed via the USB input, so if you’ve any hi-res WAV files on a USB stick then the 6006 can becomes a hi-res audio player. The USB will also handle (lower quality) MP3, AAC and WMA files, as well as being a direct input for Apple devices.
Elsewhere, the CD6006’s headphone output is remarkably well specified for a product of this type – it’s compatible with a wide range of headphones (and headphone impedances) and is far from the afterthought this sort of feature can be on other players.
The 6006 establishes a broad and believable soundstage, positions and focuses well, and makes the interaction between whole sections or individual instruments obvious – there’s a tangible sense of performance that nominal rivals (of which there are few at this price) can’t quite match.
Good Condition.No remote, box or accessories. Just the CD player.
