A True Gem: Rotel Diamond Series DT-6000 DAC/CD Player Delivers All Types of Digital Music with Sparkling Dynamics and Staggering Realism

Rotel's Diamond Series DT-6000 DAC/CD Player includes a brilliant, premium DAC and serves as the ideal component to reveal the true sonic glory captured on all those silver discs in your treasured CD collection. It also provides seamless high-definition playback of music when used with your streamer or computer. Regardless of the digital source, this component offers magnificent power, clarity, and convenience.

The DT-6000 confirms that Rotel's knack for combining high-end performance, user-friendly design, and extraordinary value remains undiminished—more than 60 years after the family-run company was founded.

The DT-6000's critical digital-to-analog circuits utilize an ESS Sabre eight-channel ES9028PRO DAC, dedicating four channels each to the Left and Right stereo outputs. The DAC's multi-channel processing delivers intricate sonic details with an ultra-low noise floor, through fully differential circuits. The result is an immersive, expansive soundstage.

The DT-6000 supports coaxial, optical, and PC-USB inputs. These, combined with a superb CD player, offer the ultimate flexibility for playing music from your favorite sources, rendering digital audio with pristine clarity, extreme precision, and incredible dynamic range.

Dedicated power supplies feed all the critical circuits, which are driven by an in-house-manufactured, low-emission shielded toroidal transformer with high-efficiency, low-ESR slit-foil smoothing capacitors, delivering ripple-free current. Physical circuit board isolation techniques and electronic decoupling design methods result in lower residual noise and reduced distortion in the sensitive analog stages, including the external DAC output filters.

The coaxial and optical inputs support PCM audio up to 24-bit/192kHz, while the asynchronous PC-USB input renders up to 32-bit/384kHz high-resolution music files. The PC-USB also supports MQA and DSD (4X) and is certified Roon Tested for the highest compatibility with Roon software.

The tray-loading CD player benefits from Rotel's decades of expertise in engineering and manufacturing award-winning disc spinners. The design includes a spring-floating CD mechanism with damping materials to reduce mechanical noise and vibrations during playback. Precision motor controls and an optical laser pickup allow this fantastic player to extract subtle nuances and intricate sonic details present on the recording.

Front-panel controls and a back-lit IR remote provide intuitive operation of the unit: Playback status, music file stream details, and CD metadata are shown on the two-line display. Additionally, RS232, 12V trigger, and external remote input ensure simplified integration with all the popular control systems.

The DT-6000 works beautifully with a wide variety of amps, and its design makes it a perfect partner for the Rotel RA-6000 Integrated Amplifier (which Music Direct also carries). Both components were released in honor of Rotel's 60+ years of sonic innovation and excellence. And, of course, both components come with the 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.

"Showcasing Rotel at its best, and launched to celebrate the Japanese brand's 60th anniversary, the Diamond Series partners an integrated amplifier with a CD player/DAC. The first of those, the RA-6000, incorporates technology from Rotel's high-end Michi models, and offers a thrilling blend of power, authority and clarity. Meanwhile, the matching DT-6000 doesn't just bring refined CD playback—it's named a DAC Transport for a reason, and features a superior 384kHz/32-bit conversion stage that can be used with other digital sources to great effect. Put together, Rotel's Diamond Series duo becomes an insightful, dynamic music system that will excite and delight."
