The Creek Evolution 50A is a modern looking amplifier with contemporary flexibility and classic first class sound quality. Housed in a slim case with engraved front panel, it’s finished in either black or silver brushed aluminium. It is user friendly with backlit push buttons and obvious volume control. For visual feedback it features an OLED white on black display with adjustable brightness levels that can be turned off when not required.

The EVOLUTION 50A uses a massive 200 Watt toroidal mains transformer with a separate winding for high and low current circuitry. Creek use parallel low impedance capacitors for very smooth power to produce a very powerful and accurate sound from a relatively small amplifier. The Power Amplifier circuit can produce high output current providing exceptional speed and control with nearly all loudspeakers.

The pre-amp provides high levels of flexibility and control. It has multiple input options, unbalanced or balanced inputs switched electronically and electronic Volume, Balance and Tone controls for the shortest possible signal path. For Vinyl fans, a Sequel MK3 Phono pre-amp can be fitted internally to input 1 to work with either Moving Magnet or Moving Coil cartridges.

In addition, input 5 is located on a removable module so it can be easily changed for a Creek Ruby USB DAC module or a Creek AMBIT FM Tuner module. When the AMBIT is fitted, it turns the amp into a Receiver. The display shows all the tuner functions and the front panel controls have dual functions. The Ruby DAC module will add 2 x SPDIF, 2 x TOSLINK, USB and Bluetooth in place of the fifth line input for digital sources upto 24bit and 192kHz.
