off topic, but this is your 'home thread' I thought I'd post it here Cno:
I saw you recommended the Creek 5350 evo in another thread. A couple of questions:
- do you know how it compares to the Destiny 2?
- how would you describe the Creek sound (esp compared to Electrocompaniet, MF and Sugden)?
I am not familiar enough with the Creek range to give a meaningful answer, though I would expect the Destiny to be that much better in all departments....maybe some owners or Creek experts will be along to help (Audio Maniac / Floyd Droid / Nogsk etc).
At a guess, I would expect the MF M series to be a touch less laid back than the Destiny. IMO.The Sugden Class A amps are richer, with the Electro (especially the older models) being one of the more natural/organic brands that (with some models) have more ooomph than Sugden.
These are all amp that fall into the less forward and analytical catagory.
Not sure how much that helps

Cno, have you heard the Pass Labs Int-30A?
Sorry, I haven't....where's Thaiman when you need him!
I have read good things about the brand though.
NI has a limited selection, unfortunately!
I spent ten minutes typing and lost it all. Here is the brief version:
friend is about to embark on an exciting journey ininvolving the pass labs, two Accuphase, the Sugden mono blocks and pre, several McIntoshs, Plinius SA103
speakers will be SF Cremona M, PB1is, 803 Diamonds, Dyno Focus 380, Proac D40R and K6
What a great journey.
He should also include Mastersound 845, Icon Audio MB 845 Sigs and Kef Refs (of course!).
We want updates!
That is an impressive list of some wonderful equipment and speakers that your friend will be listening to but he really should add an Electrocompaniet pre - power to the list of amplifiers for audition
Electrocompaniet EMC1UP Cd player , EC 4.7 pre , AW120 DMB power amp , PMC PB1i speakers . Isotek Titan / Nova , Nordost SPM speaker cable , Kimber KCAG balanced interconnects .
Linn LP12 Lingo , Ittok lv3 , Lyra Lydian , EAR834P .

I knew you would like to add that for yourself, so I left it out!
The ProAc K 6 sounds exquisite with pure class A amplification, so with Accuphase and Sugden on the cards, he can't go wrong.
Any chance you can encourage your friend on to the forum to keep us informed? failing that we're relying on you.
BTW, I echo Cno, Electro and Singslinger.
Accuphase E350 amp, Electrocompaniet EMC1UP CDP, Siltech 25th Classic anniversary 330I XLR Harbeth Super HL5 on Sound Anchor Quod ELS63 stands, Chord Odessey2 speaker cable. Grado SR60 headphones.
Your wish is my command. AW180 mono blocks and possibly Nemos have been added. Words cannot even begin to describe how excited I am
To be, or not to be.........Perchance to dream!
Have you heard any of the Chapman Audio T series speakers?
