Item: NEW Rega Elicit - R Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: AMP SOLD ELSEWHERE Item Condition: Brand new, unopened box, delivered yesterday Reason for selling: Buying a Naim all in one. This is a new replacement item. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: In December 2018 I bought a Rega Elicit-R for my use in my living area. I soon realised that I would be better served having an all in one unit that included a DAC and Streamer. I was able to buy the initial Rega Elicit - R as an open box special and got a great price. The amp looked new and worked perfectly. However, after advertising it here on Stereonet I was packing it up and found the box contained a manual - that indicated it had been sold before!! The local retailer has been terrific with support and has delivered me a brand new unopened replacement Elicit -R yesterday. I am going to pass this new item on at the price the first amp cost me. (I would appreciate it if it was bought for personal use not flipping). I would much prefer local pick up in Melbourne. Nice performance summary by CAV; Rating at a very understated 105W RMS into 8 ohms, Rega's in-house designed power amp stage is set to pull the carpet out from under your speakers and make them do things you never thought possible. This has two Sanken Darlington Bipolar Transistors in the output stage which are rated at 150 watts each ... if this were a Japanese amplifier it would be rated at 300RMS as that is what these are capable of. Our local Audio Designer Gary Cawsey points out that these are the best output devices in the world ... none of those cheap Hitachis or Toshibas that proliferate elsewhere. With the Elicit-R playing Keith Jarrett this amplifier immediately sounds far more expensive than it is. There is that solid spatial portrayal and sense of the presence of the instruments that we are accustomed to with amplifiers with an extra decimal place. Still a definable Brio-R character though with a fullness and solidity that takes the edge away, but matured without the rough parts that tell us that a Brio R is still less than two thousand dollars. The Elicit-R is a very grown up amplifier. Good balanced review in plain language, http://www.audiophilia.com/reviews/2016/9/24/j027nrfz2howy3zvaklg5heqh9io1l Pictures:
Item: Rega Elcit-R Integrated stereo amplifier Location: Brisbane QLD Price: $old Item Condition: Used / Great Reason for selling: Trying something different Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+3%), Bank Transfer Extra Info: Most thought the day would never come, yet here I am, selling my beloved Rega Elicit-R. I had the Brio, then the Elex-R, then finally, The Elicit-R. Most know I'm a 'Rega Guy' and this is the core of everything in my system, so this is risky move for me, yet I think the time is right. 1 owner (me), purchased from Living Sound & Vision in Fortitude Valley in Dec 2016 Tech Specs: 105 Watts per channel into 8 127 Watts per channel into 6 162 Watts per channel into 4 Input sensitivity for 105 Watts into 8 Line inputs (input 1 switch set to line) 1-5 and record - 196mV load 10K Phono (input 1 switch set to phono) - 2mV Load 47K in parallel with 220pF Direct input - 760mV Load 50K Power amplifier gain - 31.6dB Record output - 196mV for rated inputs Pre-amplifier output - 760mV for rated inputs Dimensions: W 432mm x D 325mm x H 82mm Weight - 13kg Comes with the fancy Rega remote and the standard kettle cord and original packaging I'll give preference to local buyer/pick-up, but but could post at buyers cost (it's heavier than it looks!)
