RE: Rega Elicit R - worthwhile upgrade?

Yes it is - to great sonic improvement.

Damn Elicit just this second tripped out again! This time after 2 hours listening. Looks like this one is heading back to Rega!!!

RE: Rega Elicit R - worthwhile upgrade?

Update on my overheating Rega Elicit R. My dealer, Sound Organisation in York rang Rega first thing this morning.

Rega accept that something is amiss with my amp and have dispatched a replacement to arrive tomorrow.

First class response all round and fingers crossed the next Elicit is trouble free!

Glad to hear it, I have been thinking about one of these amps, had a brief listen recently along with a Linn Majik and PMC speakers.

I did, but need to have a proper listen with some of my music as well.

I might give it a demo when I try out some turntables as my dealer has Rega.

RE: Rega Elicit R - worthwhile upgrade?

Replacement Elicit R received last week and running in. No problems so far and I am especially pleased with the phono stage on this amp. My RP3 is absolutely flying and I have been rummaging through the old vinyl collection and rediscovering all manner of wonders!

Absolutely love this amp!
