I recently heard one of Creek's older 55WPC integrated amps w/ a NAD cd player and Thiel CS2.4 loudspeakers. While a little under-powered for Thiels, the sound was quite nice, musically pleasing.

I'm a very happy owner of their briefly released A50i integrated, purchased used from Echo Audio in Portland, Oregon.  (Kurt!)

Opening her up and by-passing the switching and volume controls, and going direct into the amp section (using 18 db of Harrison Labs attenuators) from my Lavry DA11 (digitally fed by an MF V-link 192 via XLR) creates a very natural, clear, wide open, soundstage for miles, anything-but-electronic sound.

just watched his Youtube vid for setting up the MMF 5.1; he is cool. He says something like "Im the president or whatever", Really down to earth! Roy being stoked about 50A makes me want to audition it! Slave that sucker!
