Heard the Elicit R last week with an RP6 & RS3 speakers - in one word stunning!
Im saving up for one!
Re: Jamoli - Rega have acknowledged he has a faulty amp and Rega are selling a replacemnt!
Demoed against a Naim Nait XS and the Rega Elicit R had it beaten all ends up.
Having got it home and running, the first thing you notice is how hot this thing gets. Given the warm summer we are currently enjoying, it was like having a two bar radiator going full belt in the corner of my lounge with the only alternative to open windows.
Listening to various things from my collection confirms what a revealing, muscular and engaging amp this is.
It is not without problems though. The thermal protection circuitry seems very keen. I've had it cut out on me and reset itself many times, with the volume dial at little past half way.
I'm mentioning this to my dealer and it will be interesting to see if this is an issue others are experiencing whilst running this fabulous amp in real life environments.
We didn't have any issues with our review sample when running at high levels, and it didn't run massively hot either. I wonder if you've left enough space for ventilation? I'm curious about the speakers you're using too.

A great amp with some notable musical skills, but it loses a star compared with its better-performing, better-specified rivals
Another admirable and attractive soundbar from LG, pipped to that fifth star by fierce competition
The large screen and punchy picture are highly attractive for this price, but you’ll have to forego the smart features and Full HD resolution
