I don't subscribe to hifilover's claim that the Creek struggles. Sure it won't have the bass weight of the Nad (not many do), but the 85 watts really punches out and is well balanced. As I've said before, the Creek Evo2 is one of the best sub-£1000 integrateds I've heard.
Yes, it should be a good match with Audiolab. That said you need to hear it for yourself first, and don't just buy on reviews, even if it is tricky to dem - there are always ways of getting around the situation.
As I mentioned in your previous thread, the Leema gives you so much more than any sub£1000 integrated, and £699 can't be ignored.
