Hi all - recently got given a faulty Creek SR4040 but managed to get it repaired for £40 (dunno whether this is a good deal, therefore). It sounds pretty good to my ears - but the speaker input socket efforts on the amp are a bit whacky. Anyone know what they're called? They're nowt like the screw on ones on my Rotel RA921. Incidentally, I do think the Creek sounds like a step up from the Rotel - the phono stage seems better for one thing. Thanks everyone.
