The Evolution 50A is a slim profile design (that stands just 7cm tall) from Creek Audio. It is both very well featured and excellent sounding. On the features front it’s difficult to know where to start, the clear OLED display and interface are a joy to use, there’s a headphone socket, remote control and even fully bypassable tone controls.
All of this flexibility doesn’t seem to have detracted from the sound quality one bit, it’s a very entertaining amplifier to listen to and one with remarkably little obvious character. The music flows nicely, with good timing and involvement, the treble is pleasingly grain free and the whole sound displays a level of refinement that is really quite unusual at this price level.
Above: The above pictures shows the various connections possible, there are 4 line level inputs on RCA sockets (one of which becomes the phono input if the module is in place) , the 4th input also allows the use of balanced XLR connections.
Additional cards can be fitted internally to add extra functionality , please see list below for pricing, there’s a DAC, FM tuner module and a variety of phono stages that can be fitted, please enquire for details about availability of these options.
