Rega Elicit Mark II integrated with remote control and manual. MSRP $2,995
In perfect working and cosmetic condition, from the smoke-free
house. Comes with the manual and remote control that does basic functions: volume up and down, source switch 2 and 3, mute.
This was Rega’s flagship integrated few years ago and generated rave reviews in many audiophile
Optional MM phono stage was removed by the
original owner so Input 1 is still reserved for
the phono card. These cards show up from time to time on the internet and ebay for around $100. All other inputs work as designed.
Price is fair and firm. Priced to sell.

With Rega's Elicit, anyone who fancies a powerful and fleshy
sound with an ultra robust bass foundation and goes after rather a tad more
bass than treble will find true happiness. This doesn't default into something
muscle-boundedly grotesque or tied up. Au contraire, this amp operates with an
elegantly round, finely nuanced flow which initially can appear rather
harmless. The danger in such understatement is to be overlooked in the hasty
audition. The Elicit rather aims long term. If curious, you should plan on a
more extended audition and bring a broader range of test CDs. This machine
The Absolute Sound:
The Elicit did a fine job of conjuring an image of a small,
appreciative audience listening to one man making music with his electric
guitar, which has that rich, ringing twang one gets with a Fender
Telecaster/Twin Reverb setup. Tonally, the amplifier was quite neutral, but
showed a slight lightness of being in the Fender’s lower octaves and in Buckley’s
wide-ranging vocals, which weren’t quite as rich as what I’m used to hearing.
