High-Precision CD Player

For accurate signal reading from discs, the TEAC PD-H600 High-Resolution CD Player features a high-precision CD mechanism incorporated into a rigid body construction. The CD tray is made of one of the strongest synthetic materials available, contributing to the PD-H600's anti-vibration qualities and ensuring rigidity throughout.

In addition, the CD mechanism is positioned in the center of the unit, optimizing its balance-to-weight ratio. A built-in Burr-Brown digital-to-analog (D/A) converter delivers exceptional sound to satisfy discerning audiophiles.

Advanced Power System for Optimal Audio

TEAC's experienced engineers have outfitted the PD-H600 with ELNA electrolytic capacitors and resistors designed exclusively for high-fidelity products. A shunt regulator maintains the same level of output current by adjusting the value of the resistors, which are connected in parallel within the unit's in-flow current section.

Solid, Stylish Construction

The CD player features a robust chassis and thick aluminum panels on the front, top, and sides to help eliminate vibration. The PD-H600's design concept has been applied to the remote control as well, which is finished with aluminum fascia and an engraved logo.

Product Description

When you listen to music on TEAC's PD-H600 CD player, you will hear subtle details that you never knew existed, breathing new life into even the most familiar recordings. The Compact Disc is still the most popular and widely used digital music source in the world, and its potential is huge and indispensable. For accurate signal reading from discs, TEAC's Reference 600 CD Player employs an ultra high precision CD mechanism incorporated into a rigid body construction, skilfully created, and machined by craftsmen. For Massive Sound with Great Subtlety For Massive Sound with Great Subtlety A closer look at the electronics reveals that Burr-Brown's 24-bit/192kHz Delta-sigma D/A Converters maximize the potential of the latest compact-disc recordings. In addition, as you would expect from TEAC, every component - including the ELNA electrolytic capacitors and resistors - are exclusively chosen by experienced engineers for true audiophiles. A shunt regulator maintains the same level of output current by adjusting the value of the resistors, which are connected in parallel in the in-flow current section. Flawless Current to Every Single Section In addition, a Toroidal-core power transformer is incorporated into the CD player, to supply a stable current to the unit, while the thick film resistors used in the signal input section also contribute to the player's natural, free-flowing sound. In order to avoid jitter noise, a master clock generator, operated with a finite low-noise current, is located independently on the circuit adjacent to the D/A converter. Fully Armoured The CD tray itself is constructed using one of the strongest synthetic materials available, contributing to the anti-vibration qualities when the disc is rapidly rotating and ensuring rigidity throughout. In addition, the CD mechanism is positioned at the precise centre of the unit, thus optimising the balance-to-weight ratio.

I am glad these units, along with a host of others, are gone.

Jason suggested that we compare an NAD CD player that he thought was better than the Marantz with the TEAC H600.
Adirondax
The trio's sound is extraordinarily clear, and the soundstage is grandly precise.

This player has for the most part flown under the radar. Minimalist design-no huge selling 'banners'-but when they describe huge sound with delicate subtlety-the aren't a kiddin'.
Was the first buyer of this player @ Onecall (Hupners).
This is what digital should sound like- huge sound with no artifacts. Attack and decay properly proportioned-with out drawing attention to it's self, as it's about the music. I won't call the sound analog, as digital has no business sounding like analog-listen to a LP or tape if you want analog. Tube in the outputs aren't going to make your cd's L/P's-they just muddy the waters, and are really a joke IMHO-as they kill the positives of digital-attack and decay, and just haze over the sound in their attempt to remove digital artifacts.
This should be accomplished through careful design, parts selection and circuit and filter selections and layout.
This player will get you as close to a perfectly musical cd playback experience for under $1500 IMHO, at least with the players-$1700 and under I demoed.
Shipping carton and packaging very impressive- inner and outer box made of double wall cardboard-solid foam tray supports.
Solid design, well constructed with quality parts. Front panel buttons solid and positive. Impressive tray-very smooth-sounds sorta like a vault clanking open and shut when it fully opens and closes. Nice solid remote, quality 10a power cord. Takes a few cues from Teac's Esoteric line.
$699 ain't cheap-but how far above it performs from say a Marantz CD5004 (very nice player) @$349-IMHO it's well worth the additional money.
It really shows your ears the reason many invest in several thousand dollar cd players-because the good ones disappear and let the music take over.

Verified Purchase
Years ago, I had the pleasure of presenting David Grisman and his band at a local theater. The sound rider for this artist's contract was extremely specific. In essence it said no house sound would be used. We had to provide - or contract with the band's own sound engineer for the use of - some very specific equipment. I watched during the load in, as an eclectic potpourri of speakers, horns, and god knows what else was assembled in towers on the stage. During the sound check, boxes were pivoted, turned, and adjusted. The end result was the amplification of acoustic instruments so that they were heard - as acoustic instruments - in a theater seating around 800 people. It was magnificent.

Similarly, at home I have heard that sound in my mind - acoustic instruments in a (not overly) warm acoustic. Not "electrified", not over amplified, no digital glare, no harshness, well balanced, in "real space". My CD player always seemed to be the weakest link in my system. I simply couldn't afford multi thousand dollar players, and managed to convince myself that after a certain point, the "price:performance" ratio offered minimal return in the bang for the buck.

While that is probably true, I was never really in the position to test that hypothesis. When my favorite player, an Arcam DV88 died, I began researching newer players. Early research suggested that the Marantz 5004 provided the essence of the high-end audiophile experience at a fraction of audiophile prices. As my review for that product says: I bought it, and returned it. Vocals had a horrible glare. The bass was unfocussed and boomy. Some suggested I should have allowed the player to break in a bit longer - but past experience suggested otherwise.

I bought this unit based upon my own evaluation of it "on paper," and on the two very detailed reviews that have been provided here on Amazon. For the past ten years or so, this is the manner in which I have purchased virtually all of my audio components--my evaluation of the specifications, parts quality, and design, combined with some customer opinions. Overall, I find this is the best route to good sound. I tend to avoid editorial reviews, as they tend to overstate the level of performance, or ignore "minor" details that may be important to certain end-users (such as the assembly quality, display, and overall operational performance). I have owned some reasonably good sounding players that have had certain quirks that, for me, were simply not worth tolerating. I can remember one player that had a noisy transport, and another expensive unit that had an odd (and annoying) green light shining through the tray opening...strange.

I am glad these units, along with a host of others, are gone. In the 20 years I have been an audiophile, I have not owned a player as good as the Teac PD-H600. It is simply the best performer--period--with no issues or quirks. The display could be larger and more visible, but that is about all I could criticize. All that the previous two reviewers have indicated is absolutely accurate. It is hard to believe that a sub-$1,000 unit could have such a life-like, dynamic, natural, uncolored sound. Prior to owning the Teac, I had the Marantz SA-15S2 ($1,999) in my system. Indeed, it is a nice player, but the Teac is better. The Teac is more natural, more communicative. The Teac is also more revealing, as it seems to reveal everything in the recording, both bad and good.
