I have no experience or opinion on the Creek but I do own the Pulsus. The excellent reviews are very well deserved.
Strong bass with excellent control, balanced by an extemely extended (but never harsh) top end. Midband is wide open with a touch of warmth. There is not a lean bone to be found in its body. Soundstaging is very 3D and instrument separation is superb.
I'm using it with a LOMC Ortofon cart but it should work great with MM or HOMC carts as well. It is a very flexible unit with easy to use controls which are located along the underbody.
I haven't heard all the phono stages at this price point (new) but have a very hard time believing that any of them could compare.
