Good Condition
$750 slightly negotiable

The CD-S6 CD player, which features three 12AX7 tubes and one 12AU7 tube in a true class-A output stage. The player sports a hefty but smooth Philips VAM 1202 transport mechanism and Burr-Brown PCM-1732 24-bit/96kHz DACs paired with a Pacific Microsonics DM-100 HDCD decoder. On its rear the CD-S6 includes one pair of unbalanced RCA outputs and one digital coaxial output. The included IEC power cord is removable.

Weighing a substantial 20 pounds, the CD-S6 is a solid hunk of CD player. Nothing here feels cheap — and it isn’t. At 17” wide, 5” high and 13” deep, the player is slightly thicker than most. The thick faceplate features a round center window through which the tubes appear to glow. In fact, the orange glow produced is not from the tubes themselves, but illumination in the window that mimics a warm glow. The “glow” can be dimmed or turned off entirely with a switch on the rear of the unit. Black and silver are the finish options.

At the lower left on the faceplate is the power button, the remote sensor, and a warm-up LED. When the player is powered on, the LED flashes for several seconds, signaling that the tubes are reaching operating status. To the right are stop, play/pause, open/close, back/next buttons, an HDCD indicator LED, a 1/4” headphone jack, and rotary headphone level control.

Like the unit itself, the CD-S6’s remote is a solid chunk of metal. All player functions are available from the full-featured remote, including a dimmer button that can lower the display to dark, a feature only accessible through the remote. The remote can also enable program, repeat or shuffle play modes, as well as control the player’s output level. Thus, you can use the CD-S6 without a preamp.
