Creek Evolution 2 – test review


Richard Black (HiFi Choice magazine) writes as follows: "If there’s one area where we feel the Evo 2 advances significantly over the original, it’s detail. This has improved from decent to really rather good, with lovely resolution of those little bits of inside information that can make a recording come to life. Alongside this, as one would expect, is very good stereo imaging, with precise and consistent lateral placement of instruments and good depth too. Overall, we found the combination of excitement and insight very convincing in this amplifier. There’s some worthy competition around at a similar price, but we feel few amps can measure up sonically and the upmarket looks and build certainly add appeal.

  • LIKE: Plenty of energy, with very confident dynamics; smart, too!
  • DISLIKE: Not many inputs and frequency extremes could be more neutral
  • WE SAY: An attractive option if you want an amp with performance that’s a cut above the average"
