    Rega Upgrade

    I don't think there is any upgrades required for your RP10. You've now got the top of the line Rega turntable. If I were you, and had money burning a hole in my pocket, I'd be looking at what shortcomings do I have in my other gear that could help me get the most out of my RP10 (e.g: phono, rack, isolation, amp, speakers, record cleaning products, etc etc). Enjoy, it's a great TT
  2. I was waiting for you to chime in about the Saturn! You never know mate...
  3. I DID, but long story short: I only have the smaller Rega remote to bundle with the Elicit-R (which covers all functions)

  7. Hi All, Wanted to share an experience I recently went through with my Rega Elicit-R integrated amp. Official site: http://www.rega.co.uk/elicit-r.html I've had my Elict-R for a couple of years, purchased brand new locally, and always really really enjoy the amp. Sounds fantastic, and great synergy with my other Rega gear. I previously had the Elex-R, and the Brio-R. I find that the Elicit was a satisfying upgrade, well worth moving up from the other models. My listening habits are usually having a good sit down listen for an hour or two on a Friday night or weekend (with a drink or two), usually spinning my favourite records (using an external MC phono). Will also sometimes come home of a weeknight and power-up and have a listen to digital sources at low/moderate volumes while I cook and do the daily evening routine. Anyways, I recently splurged and purchased a new/different integrated amp. After enjoying the new purchase for a little while, decided I no longer needed the ol' Elicit-R So I put the Elicit-R up for sale here on Stereonet classifieds. It was soon sold here on Stereonet to a fellow locally in Brisbane QLD. Very soon after sale, the buyer complained to me that the amp was apparently switching itself off after a couple hours of listening. I had experienced something like this myself in the past. Sometimes the Elicit would switch itself into 'protection' mode when it would get too hot. Yet this happened only very rarely to me, only on a couple of occasions, on very hot days and extended listening at high volumes. I'm not sure why this issue wasn't more apparent to me? Maybe due to my usual listening habits, of only listening/using in short bursts? The buyer mentioned that he usually runs his hifi for extended periods (5hrs+). He was running some very neat floorstanding KEFs (possibly 4ohms). I did some searching online, and found some similar reports/issues (only with the Elicit-R, not Elex-R, or Brio), all the reported issues of overheating/switching into protection mode were fixed by simply returning the Elicit-R to Rega for warranty repair. Anyways, so I quickly refunded the buyer and collected the amp and sent it off for warranty repair (Rega has 3yr warranty in Australia). A couple of weeks later I have it back, and have run it for some long extended listening over the weekend just gone (was over 30' all weekend here in QLD too) and is now running without interruption. Although the top left of the case still does get very warm, it doesn't get hot enough to switch into protection mode. The warranty repair report notes: " Dismantled & adjusted bias both channels. Reassembled & tested. " I don't have much understanding of amp Bias adjustment, yet assume it was up too high/hot from initial build? Thankfully the protection circuit is there and no damage done. FYI: The Elex and Brio have no protection circuit/mode. I know the Rega Elicit-Rs aren't very common here in Australia, yet wanted share, and hear if anyone else has had the same or similar issues with their Elicit-R Also, my Elicit-R will likely be available for sale again soon

    Cheers Spider, I agree with every word. It's truly worth upgrading from the Elex to Elicit for those very reasons. PS: I said I'd never sell the Elicit-R, so you never know with the Saturn-R

  13. In regards to the remote, I don't use the NVIDIA remote, I use a Logitech Harmony remote (which I use for all my hi-fi, TV and AV gear). Maybe the wife would give it another go with a 'familiar' remote like this? It's a shame as it's a great unit, as you noted: "...highest performance, most flexible media player..." either way, you should have no trouble selling this, GLWS 👍
  14. I downloaded and installed last night. Pretty major change to the home screen, not sure I love the new layout. Had a bit of a play late last night, without issues. I mainly use Kodi (which still works as it should after upgrade). So far So Good 👍
  15. I can confirm the fantastic sound and physical quality of these too, as I've also experienced these very speakers in the flesh. I liked 'em so much that I went out and bought a pair for myself 👍
