Bottom Line:   
In a small to medium size the Creek gets the job done. Give
it a efficient mini-monitor and a top quality CD player
such as Rega Planet,Linn Genki or a Marantz or NAD budget
player and you have the makings of a very good High-End
system.

It may not have the slam of a Krell KAV 300i. But it makes up for it when it comes to harmonics and overall sound quality.

Bottom Line:   
Sound. That's what the 4330SE is all about. It has simple looks, few controls, no bells, no whistles. The remote is ugly and doesn't do much (mute, vol up, vol down - that's it). Break it in, warm it up, and send the signal over good cable to relatively sensitive speakers. Immediately you're in awe. Crank up the volume and you're in heaven. No, you won't fill a cathedral with the volume. But you'll make your living room (or whatever room in the house you place this gem) fill with a richness you won't believe possible for under a grand. Not all watts are created equal, and this 50 watt amp definitely was at the front of the quality line. I've got it powering a set of Gallo Acoustics Micros: not recognized as "audiophile quality" but definitely top-notch in their intended role. The soundstage is a mile wide, and the detail is awesome. 'Nuff said.

Bottom Line:   
I recently own a 4330se. Haven't listened to it yet but if it's slightly better than the 4330R it'll sound excellent.
I'd like to read your reviews on this specific Integrated. My system will focus around the 4330se and your input will help me creat something which is all about the music. Mostly Jazz, Classical & Classic Rock Music. The budget rig will sit in my NYC apartment's Dinning/Living Room (size in feet is 19Lx14Wx8H). As a starting point: I'm thinking of Arcam-8se, Meadowlark Audio-Kestrel& Kimber Cables 8TC/Hero.
Your reviews will be a great help. I'll return with a more substantive review once it's all playing together. Yes, I do have a "bias" for the Creek, but for the money & small size the others (listed above) just aren't reasonable.
