The Creek 5350SE is the only model in your list, I think, that has separate preamp out and amp in jacks. That would make the decision for me, because I would add a subwoofer to the system and I wouldn't want to run the Harbeth's full range. There is a very good review with measurements in the Stereophile archives of the 5350. It's a killer value.

While the Evo and the Destiny are multvoltage (115/230), I am positive the 5350 SE Classic is not (at lest not in the USA), unless there has been a recent change in production. Unfortunately I cannot help you with your question; while I have heard both the Classic and the Evo and liked what I heard, they were not paired with Harbeths at the time.
I've had a Creek amp in the past. I think they're one of the great performance/value products in high end.
There is a review of the Evo in the current issue of UHF magazine. A portion of the review can be viewed for free online at:
The review is on page 42 of the pdf version.
I own a Creek Evo (with Quad 11L2 speakers), and have also heard it paired with the bookshelf Harbeths. MAN! What a combo! Both are amazing components, and they sound fantastic together! I really love my Creek Evo and would recommend it to anyone, especially for the price.
I am told the Creek Destiny is much better, but its a bit pricey for me.
