Creek Audio Evolution 50 CD Player
If you wish to stream music from the Internet, listen to high-resolution music from a computer, satellite receiver or TV, or play CDs at the highest quality, the EVOLUTION 50CD is the product for you. Its, highly flexible, digital pre-amplifier easily switches between any of these sources and can remotely control the output volume, in the digital domain.
With multiple digital inputs and outputs, the EVOLUTION 50CD is one of the most well equipped and seriously high-end DAC products on the market, despite its competitive price.
The Evolution 50CD Player will work very well in the following system. Please note the speakers should be selected to match the size of your listening room.
The EVOLUTION 50CD is a high-end DAC, with built-in CD transport and not just a CD Player. It can accept a total of seven digital sources, including an optional “Comet” BT module. It also has two digital outputs and a custom Creek RC bus to extend the Infra Red Sensor or synchronise it with its matching amplifier.
To fully realise the potential sonic benefits of streaming hi-resolution music files from a computer, asynchronous USB support is vital. The Evolution 50’s Class 1 asynchronous USB circuit works on different computer platforms without drivers. It is modular, so it can be upgraded to Class 2 USB if necessary.
The highest quality audio output is available via balanced or un-balanced sockets for maximum flexibility. Balanced outputs are recommended if long interconnects are needed. After extensive listening tests, Creek Audio’s staff selected the best sounding output circuitry before finalising the design.
To maintain top performance, the custom CDM-1 slot-drive CD transport is clocked by a separate, extremely accurate ultra-low jitter, master-clock, situated right next to the DAC for bit-perfect performance.
From the moment it was slotted into my system straight out of the box without burn-in, it was clear that this player is excellent. Tonally very articulate and transparent, it maintains a grip on bass frequencies and has a delicate airy midband when played through my Harbeth HLP3ES ‘speakers.It not only sounds good but it’s stylish too, nicely built, and functions well thanks to a sleek slot-loading CD drive, backlit buttons and OLED display. Thank you Peter – I did enjoy our chats!
