Creek EVOLUTION EVO 50CD overview

  • 1Description

The silver Evolution 50CD from Creek is a high resolution Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) with an integrated slot-loading CD player and wireless IR remote. The unit features a total of 6 digital inputs (including the CD player), 2 digital outputs, and a remote control (RC) bus for connecting to other EVO 50 products. The DAC features two top-grade Wolfson 24-bit 192 kHz ICs, running in double differential mode to extract the maximum performance possible.  The two SPDIF and two TOSLINK digital inputs are capable of reading digital signal resolutions up to 24-bit 192 kHz, while the USB input is capable of 24-bit 96 kHz and is Mac/PC compatible without the need for additional drivers.

The over-specified toroidal mains transformer used by the EVO 50CD features separate windings for analogue and digital circuitry and low magnetic field for excellent noise rejection, while multiple low-impedance power supply capacitors and voltage regulators optimize performance.  The use of organic polymer capacitors in key digital and analog circuitry provide smooth sonic performance, while high-grade WIMA polypropylene capacitors are employed in the output filters to provide the best possible sound. Future expansion options include a Bluetooth module for wireless streaming of audio content. The EVO 50CD ships with a wireless IR remote and an IEC power cord.

  • Organic LED display (OLED) for high resolution graphic symbols
  • DAC: 2x Wolfson 24-bit 192 kHz ICs
  • Balanced and unbalanced analog outputs
  • Digital outputs via SPDIF and TOSLINK
  • Five digital filter options for ultrasonic frequencies
  • Optimized power supply for high performance and low noise
  • Wireless Remote: 50' range
  • Optional Bluetooth Module Available for wireless streaming
