Creek Destiny 2 vs Anthem 225 vs Simaudio 250i

Hi everyone,

Any thoughts on the above Integrated amps? If I'm getting them used for about the same price which one is the best bet?

The Anthem has the most power and comes with a built in phono stage. That is a plus as I plan on using a turn table source (VPI Traveller or Rega P6). The Creek and Simaudio have excellent reviews and some suggest have the better sound than the Anthem.

Any experience with above amps... your thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
The Creek Destiny 2 or the Anthem would be my pick based upon my listening recollections. They were paired with Dynaudio and Sonus Faber speakers. YMMV.
All 3 are very good, but I would pick the Creek.
Thanks for your response. Have either of you used their phono stages?
No, sorry.
On the Creek I have. I used both MM and MC and got good sound. Of course you can buy a better external phono stage, but the Creek will definitely hold you over until you decide to upgrade.
I have demoed the Anthem, but, not the Creek.
The Anthem is certainly more robust and powerful.
