The Sequel mk4 has been designed primarily to match the exacting requirements of the top-of-the-range Voyage i20 Integrated Amplifier, but it can also be fitted to most Creek amplifiers produced since 1993.

The Sequel mk4 is designed and assembled in Europe using a multi-layer* PCB fitted with high-quality mini-MELF** resistors, WIMA*** capacitors and low-noise active**** circuitry, ideally suited for Moving Magnet cartridge amplification. To maintain top-performance under all circumstances, a capacitance-multiplying filter circuitry is used to maintain ultra-low power supply power and stability.

The Sequel mk4 replaces the internal “LINK” PCB***** and its function is to boost the signal level and changes the frequency response according to the RIAA****** standard. It has been developed to simplify the user experience and provide flexibility to match most types of popular cartridges.

Cartridge compatibility recommendation is just a rough guide to allow the average modulation of a vinyl disc to drive the amplifier to maximum rated power. Creek amplifiers range in power from 40 to 120 Watts into 8 Ohms, depending on the model.

Not only can it be switched for 40dB or 50dB gain, the user can also select 100pF or 200pF input capacitance and IEC low frequency roll-off, with a simple piano key switch. It is flexible enough to match a wide-range of MM and high-output MC cartridges. It is not suitable for medium to low output MC cartridges, which require lower matching impedance and higher gain.

Sequel mk4 is suitable for use with the following Creek Integrated amps and pre-amps from 1993 onwards. To make sure the Sequel mk4 suits your Creek amplifier, please read the definitive list below: Evolution 100A and Evolution 50A, Destiny 2, Evolution 2, Evolution 5350, Classic 5350 SE, 5350 SE, 5350 R and 5350, 5250, 5250 R and 5250 SE, 4330, 4330 R and 4330 SE, 4240 and 4240 SE. P42 Pre-amp.
