SOLD: FS: Rega Elicit R Amplifier - SOLD ELSEWHERE THANKS

Recommended Posts

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

Just a matter of interest, which Naim all in one did you go for.  I just took delivery of the uniti Star.  Just a stunning piece of equipment

Thanks Nick.

 

You could sell the car and catch the train - it's only 15 kgs to get home

I have just bought the baby of the range - The Atom.  

 

Liked the look of the Star and the increase in power - but it came down to $.

Thanks Paranoy

 

The Elicit-R is a good buy at RRP, ..... getting the brand new one for a B stock price is going to be super lucky for the new owner.

Tentatively spoken for - but as usual ... things can change.

 

I will update status at 1000 tomorrow.

 

Thanks to all who enquired.

      Price: $2200 Item Condition: Immaculate Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Glen Waverley State: Victoria Payment Method: Cash on pick up Reason for selling: NLR Further information: Selling a few items on behalf of my friend as his personal circumstance have changed.  
       
      Items are pretty much new with as little as 50 hours of use on them. 
       
      Preference to sell them all to the one person, however happy to break up if there are buyers for all of the items. Items are based in the south East  of Melbourne and could possibly be dropped off as well as they need to be gone ASAP. Keen to see how low some of the prices go, however please don’t be offended if I don’t responded for ridiculous offers. 
       
      Looking for someone locally, however have the boxes for the TT and therefor can ship if no local buyers are found.

      Extra Info:
       
      This is a complete custom build from the ground up based on a Rega P series design. Raw cost of materials and items was over $6000.
       
      Plynth milled from single block of billet alloy on CNC router (around 15kg) Finished in red automotive paint Followed same dimmensions as a Rega P3 plynth. 5x Maglev feet (tried with 3, 4 and 5 configurations and 5 was the best) IsoKinetic IsoDrive Power Supply with 33/45 speed selection IsoKinetic 25mm Acrylic Platter IsoKinetic IsoSub Groovetracer Machined Subplatter IsoKinetic Phosphor Bronze Bearing Sleeve IsoKinetic Ruby Bearing + Spindle Oil (lifetime supply left in bottle) IsoKinetic Puck/Stabiliser IsoKinetic Red Thing Silicone Belt + Spare New One in Packet IsoKinetic MTB-D Motor Thrust Bearing + Motor Isolation Mod for Premotec Motor Premotec 50hz Synchronous Motor Audiomods Series 4 Tonearm with Series 5 bearing, lift and arm hold.

      *I have covered the hole bottom left corner where a power button would have gone if I didnt use the external motor PSU and controller with a samurai silver coin from WA mint. So the turntable is dubbed "The Samurai"
       
      For interstate buyers, it will be professionally crated and foam lined for shipping with tonearm back in original transport box. Shipping Australia wide with insurance included.
       
      For those that want to know where to from here - my next build will be in the similar vein...but using the MK6 Audiomods tonearm for primary, 200mm monster delrin platter,  ceramic bearing sleeve, larger billet plynth with 2 armboards for future arm addition and external motor and controller.
