In Stock An In Stock item is available to ship normally within 24 business hours.
Preorder A Preorder is an item that has not yet been released. Typically the label will set a projected release date (that is subject to change). If a projected release date is known, we will include this in the description in red. Other Preorders are set to release "TBA." This means that release date is yet "To Be Announced". The Preorder can be released anywhere between weeks, months or years from its initial announcement.
Backordered An Out Of Stock item is an item that we normally have available to ship but we are temporarily out of. We do not have a specific date when it will be coming.
Awaiting Repress Awaiting repress titles are in the process of being repressed by the label. No ETA is available at this time.
Expected On When an item is Out Of Stock and we have an estimated date when our stock should arrive, we list that date on our website in the part's description. It is not guaranteed.
Special Order A Special Order item is an item that we do not stock but can order from the manufacturer. Typical order times are located within the product description.

The Creek Evolution 100CD is one of the most well equipped and seriously high-end DAC products on the market, despite its competitive price!

Switchable from 115 Volt 60Hz to 230 Volt 50Hz Operation.

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 Creek Evolution 100CD 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 Creek Evolution 100CD is one of the most well equipped and seriously high-end DAC products on the market, despite its competitive price.

The Creek Evolution 100CD 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 Bluetooth. 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 24/192 music files from a computer, asynchronous USB 2 support is vital. The Creek Evolution 100CD circuitry works with various computer platforms but requires a custom ASIO driver to enable it to work with PCs. The ASIO and USB 2 driver can both be downloaded from this webpage.

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. Un-balanced outputs are via heavy duty gold plated, solid RCA sockets.

If discreet headphone listening is required, there is a built-in high performance headphone amplifier capable of driving most types of headphones, (8 to 2k Ohms recommended range). Volume is adjustable from the front panel or by remote control.

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.

The Creek Evolution 100CD uses a powerful 30 Watt toroidal mains transformer to maintain a low magnetic field and excellent noise performance. It features three separate windings, to power its analogue and digital circuitry and custom CD transport. Multiple low-impedance power supply capacitors and voltage regulators are used to optimise the power supplies’ performance. Organic polymer capacitors are used to decouple critical analogue and digital circuits and high-grade WIMA polypropylene capacitors are used in the output filters.

To optimise its performance, the Creek Evolution 100CD uses two top-of-the-range 24 Bit 192 kHz stereo DACs, running in double differential mode, to improve the cancellation of distortion and noise. A multiple frequency, low-jitter, clock optimises the performance of the DAC at all sample rates. A completely independent clock maintains bit-perfect performance for Compact Disc.

Cosmetically the Creek Evolution 100CD is similar to the Evolution 50A and Evolution 100A integrated amplifiers; 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 Creek Evolution 100CD’s soft touch push buttons have excellent tactile feel. Each button is backlit to clearly display usable functions, for optimum user-friendliness.

All Creek Evolution products now feature large OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) displays, providing higher clarity and resolution than other technologies. Display and button brightness levels can be adjusted or turned-off, via the remote handset.

The EVO system remote handset controls all the functions of the Evolution range, including the Amp, CD/DAC, Ambit Tuner and Ruby DAC.
