Product Description

Creek Evolution 50CD DAC/CD Player is designed for digital connectivity and flexibility.

Great Design

Visually similar to the Evolution 50A integrated amplifier; the slim case and elegant front panel is available in either black or silver brushed aluminium with an engraved logo. It also uses a custom push button array that deals a brilliant tactile feel. Each user-friendly button is backlit with a white LED to plainly show functions.

OLED Display

Evo 50CD is the second Creek model to profit from an Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) display. The contrasting display provides higher clarity and resolution than a conventional display. Brightness level for the display and buttons is adjustable via the remote handset.

USB Class 2

Asynchronous USB Class 2 audio support is crucial to wholly appreciate the prospective aural benefits of streaming music files from PC. The USB circuit is modular enabling future upgrades.

DAC Converter

Not just a CD player, Evolution 50CD is essentially a high-end DAC with integrated CD transport. Capable of handling six digital sources including CD, it has two digital outputs plus a Creek RC bus. Matching the integrated amplifier, both balanced and unbalanced analogue outputs are available for optimum flexibility. This is the first Creek digital product to feature two top-of-the-range Wolfson 24 Bit 192 kHz DAC ICs, running in double differential mode, to extract the maximum possible performance. The Evolution 50CD uses custom, low jitter, clocks for top performance at all sample rates.


Like previous Creek products, Evolution 50CD incorporates an over-specified toroidal mains transformer, with isolated windings for analogue and digital circuitry and low magnetic field for exceptional noise elimination. Several low-impedance power supply capacitors and voltage regulators work to enhance the presentation.


Key analogue and digital circuitry feature organic polymer capacitors while the output filters use premium WIMA polypropylene capacitors. Generous inputs and outputs equip this unit for current and truly top-end DAC products notwithstanding its modest price.

Remote Handset

The Evo system remote handset fully controls the Evo 50 range, including the Amp, CD/DAC, Ambit Tuner and Ruby DAC. As an optional extra, the range also has an IR extender allowing the products to be concealed while still remote control operable.
