Old Creek DAC-60 ??
 
My friend got one and asks if this is still of any value. I said that only , possibly on DIY market but what do I know. Any thoughts?

I have never seen a Creek product that was remotely decently built, but, according to the chips it is said to use, it certainly has the potential to be extremely good. It's roughly equivalent to an Adcom GDA600, so should be worth around $200 usd.

Sad to say, I too am not as impressed with Creek as their reputation. I bought an older integrated amp that was a hallmark for musicality. Nope. Not bad mind you, but not special either.

Looking for a CD player right now, I noticed as good as some were for the time, the chips have gotten a lot better. Yesterday's $1220 CD is about today's $400 CD. You never know what e-bay will bring. I paid too much for my Creek.

I need some parts for mine. Is it still around?

I agree with Steve S about the quality; in fact, I find him to be one of (or the) most knowledgable people on CD players and related gear on this or any other forum.

Despite the disappointing quality, this CD-60 was a gift and I'd like to keep it functioning for sentimental reasons.
