Creek Evolution 100CD


The Creek Evolution 100CD player: While it seems a bit pricey at the 2G point for a CD player, this is not a plain old CD player. If you wish to stream music from the Internet, listen to high-resolution music from a computer, satellite receiver or TV, or play CDs at the highest quality and if these things were your main source then the EVOLUTION 100CD price may be justifiable. Its highly flexible, digital pre-amplifier easily switches between any of these sources and can remotely control the output volume, in the digital domain.
