Creek Sequel 3 MK3 Adjustable Phono Board

Creek Audio has always been a fan of the vinyl disc. For those consumers who have an interest in enjoying this alternative source of high quality music, there are few amplifiers available today equipped to deal with this as standard. All Creek integrated amplifiers, from 1993 have been designed to accept plug-in Phono modules, to enable vinyl disc reproduction.

The module must be fitted inside the amp, in a slot that will change the Auxiliary Line input into a Phono input, so either the supplying dealer, or the user, must fit the Phono pre-amp before it can be used.

The new generation Sequel mk3 circuitry has been developed to simplify the user experience and provide flexibility to match various types of cartridge in one module.  Not only can it be switched for 40dB or 50dB gain, the user can select 100pF or 200pF input capacitance and IEC low frequency roll-off, with a simple piano key switch on the PCB. The EVOLUTION amp’s display will automatically show Phono, when the amp is fitted with the Plug-in module and selected for that input.

Exact matching of cartridge gain is not necessary, as the amplifier’s pre-amp volume control can always be used to increase or decrease the sensitivity. The main issue is to avoid input overload.

The Sequel Phono modules can also be used to enable vinyl input on current and older Creek amplifiers including the following:

Destiny 2 integrated amplifier, Evolution 2 integrated amplifier, Evolution 5350 integrated amplifier,

Classic 5350SE Integrated amp, 5350SE, 5350R and 5350 Integrated amps, 5250, 5250R and 5250SE integrated amps, 4330 and 4330SE Integrated amps, but not mk2 versions, 4240 and 4240SE Integrated amps.

P42, A50i, A50iR, 4330mk2 and 4330SE mk2 can only use the single supply EVOLUTION MM and MC Phono, which is now out of production. Creek and its distributors still have some stocks available.

easy to fit/good sounding
Thursday, 6 September 2018  | 

just bought this piece of equipment for my creek 5052 se to replace the mc board fitted to get it ready for my sumiko bluepoint special evo mk III high output.
rather easy to fit. took me about 5 min. it's a little bigger than the old phonoboard so getting the cover back on is rather tight. not much pkay there.
it sounds really nice and works well with my sytem. setting the sequel mk3 is a bit of work figuring out. the manual provided lacks detailed information how to exactly.
still not a hundred percent sure if i got iec setting right...
but if you're just a bit cleverer than me should be no problem. as mentioned before... ...sounds very good to me and definitely improved my sytem by a lot...

A nice improvement
Wednesday, 25 January 2017  | 

Previously, I had the Sequel 48 MK II
phono board. It wasn't bad but did not
have a great soundstage plus you
could not change the input impedance.
This new board has an expanded soundstage and the ability to adjust
the input impedance and gain. I'm very glad I bought this.
