I hope you all are having a good one. I am posting to ask for peoples opinion on creek integrated amplifiers. I have had a creek 4330 and 4140, both of which exceeded my expectations by a long shot. Their ability to play the music was truly impressive. I have heard their latest offering is now made in china and not quite as good, is this true? Also I was just wondering in general what everyone's favorite budget Creek amplifier is? I think I would have to vote for the 4140, I like the size, sound and the simple design, I found the DIN connections to a nice esoteric touch.
