Had the chance yesterday to listen to the following:
RP6 with Dynvector 10x5
Very nice open, transparent sound - I could quite easily live with it full time!
2nd listen of the Elicit R - it just plays music beautifully, this really is a lovely amp, it weighs an absolute tonne but havent worked how the volume control works! Doh!
Before I get shot down in flames, while I was there had a listen to an expensice Bryston Pre/Power with Focal speakers RP8 and Dynavector cart (2 up from the 10x5) - this was staggering - very controlled at high volume but you know what the Rega system wasnt far behind you knpw.
Seems once you start getting into mid range area you have to spends large amounts to get small improvements!
Elicit R - Ordered!
