Pretty lights whats that?
Mens amps , they have valves in em
On a serious note ,for a change, re the Elicit.
It could quite easily be a bad batch of thermal sensors , or an over sensitive sensor . With ten a penny componants , be it resistors / sensors etc. You will always get a bad boy in the batch one day.
... Or maybe it just needs a pink mankini.

More likely that people have poked the thing into a rack shelf with a couple of inches of headroom or stacked their CD player on top of it.
People are far more unreliable than electrical components.
I would confidently estimate that 80 percent of Elicit-R instruction manuals hit the recycling bin with their plastic covers still sealed.

Blimey as low as 80% .

Maybe Gandy should sell mankinis to match the colour of his TTs and those lurid felt mats that are out there.
Colour co-ordinated vinyl spinnin , it could catch on ya know.
I have it on a Target stand and have even moved it one shelf down and removed the shelf above in order to allow the hot air rising to escape more easily.
It seems to be behaving today. I've had it running for two hours at half volume and no cut out yet. Hope I've not jinxed it by saying that! Will contact Sound Organisation tomorrow to log the problem though to ensure I'm covered for replacement/ refund purposes.
Fingers crossed I won't need it.
Yip , contact them. You shouldnt be sitting there fingers crossed. Wick it up to see what happens , if it shuts down then you have a duffer imo.
whats the rest of you kit? Have you got a vinyl front end?
ATV3 > Rega DAC > Rega Elicit R > Rega RS3
Rega RP6 / 10x5 / MP-110
Rega Planar 3, Naim CD5XS, Flatcap XS and B&W 685s.
It all sounds amazing (when it's not cutting out!).
What did the dealer say?
Dealer is shut today but sent them an e mail to put them on notice. Will ring first thing!
is the flatcap XS powering your CDP?
