With the Evolution 50 CD, Creek have really produced a high quality digital decoding centre with a good CD transport bolted on. You may ask, why you should pay the extra for a CD transport when the future appears to be download / streaming? Well the answer is, this CD playing system still sounds better than the vast majority of dedicated streaming devices, and any ‘laptop’ solution we have heard – and after all, that’s, theoretically, why we are bothering with Hi-Fi, isn’t it?

The EVOLUTION 50CD DAC and CD Player is part of a new generation of Creek products, designed for digital connectivity and uncompromised flexibility.

Cosmetically the EVOLUTION 50CD is similar to the EVOLUTION 50A integrated amplifier; its slim case and luxurious front panel is finished in either black or silver brushed aluminium and deeply engraved. Also like the matching amp, the EVOLUTION 50CD uses a custom soft push button arrangement that offers excellent tactile feel. Each button is backlit with a white LED to clearly display usable functions, for optimum user-friendliness.
