Creek Evo 100 CD - CD Player/DAC, Black


The EVOLUTION 100CD is a high-end DAC with built-in CD transport, not just a CD Player. It can accept seven digital sources, including Bluetooth. It also has two digital outputs and a custom Creek RC bus to extend or synchronise the infrared sensor 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 EVOLUTION 100CD circuitry works with various computer platforms but requires a custom ASIO driver to work with PCs. The ASIO and USB 2 drivers can both be downloaded from this webpage.

For maximum flexibility, the highest-quality audio output is available via balanced or unbalanced sockets. 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. Unbalanced outputs are via heavy-duty gold-plated, solid RCA sockets.

If discreet headphone listening is required, a built-in high-performance headphone amplifier can drive most types of headphones (8 to 2k Ohms is the 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 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 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 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 DAC's performance at all sample rates. A completely independent clock maintains a bit-perfect performance for Compact Disc.

Cosmetically the 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 EVOLUTION 100CD’s soft-touch push buttons have an 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, which provide 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.
