I think the amp will be released this month.
Good question: feel a call to Creek coming on...

Another amp to add to my shortlist alongside Rega, Marantz KI lite.

Is this a direct replacement for the Evo range?

Before Xmas I contacted Creek about the new Evolution 50D CD player/DAC, as this was originally due out last summer along with the 50A amp. They informed me that if everything goes according to plan the 50D will be available from the end of February.
Amplification: Creek Evolution 5350 with Creek Sequel 40 plug in phono stage
Speakers: Epos Elan 30
Sources: Squeezebox Touch - TEAC PD-H300C CDP - PC with Foobar 2000
DAC: Arcam rDAC kw
Turntable: Rega Planar P3 with Ortofon 2M Blue cart on RB300 tonearm
Various bits of wire supplied by Mark Grant and Van Damme
According to another forum where the designer of the Evolution 50D mentioned, the products are in the production line now, waiting for the firmware to be ready.
So the products should be available soon.
Thanks. Don't think they'll be at the Bristol show though as they never seem to appear there.
My Hi fi Choice magazine has just arrived and they are doing a review of the Evolution 50A amp to appear in next months magazine available from 7th Feb

Good news. I love the design of the amp.
The new website is online. Lots of info about the new products.
Find the new website really tricky to use. The top of the home page is missing. Anyone else having this problem?
" new Evolution 50A has won a Diapason d’or award for the best sounding amplifier at its level".
When will WHF review it? HiFi Choice already have a cliff hanger about really good sound.
Did WHF even review the original Evolution or the Evolution 2? I don't think they did and I wouldn't hold my breath about them getting a review sample of the Evolution 50. But it will be really cool if they surprise me.
