The Elicit-R has been designed and engineered to the highest
standard. The Elicit-R will deliver the best possible audio performance whilst
remaining simple to use and easy to setup. Our recent development work in
amplifier design circuitry has allowed us to further advance the Elicit-R
performance by using new and improved power amplifier circuits.
The Elicit-R held the title of What Hi-Fi? Best
Stereo amplifier for three years in a row.
The Perfect Blend of Power and Control
Combined with FET discrete line level pre-amplifiers and a
programmable stepped attenuator volume control, the Elicit-R promises greater
levels of performance and control over the delivery of power. The Elicit-R is
supplied with the new Solaris system remote handset offering full control over
this and all of the current range of electronics.

The output amplifier used in the Elicit-R was
born after extensive research by our engineers to develop a low source Class A
driver stage, based around a complementary pair of Darlington output
transistors, forming an emulated Class A driver stage.
The Elicit-R includes a high quality, built in,
moving magnet phono stage designed to maximize the potential of your vinyl
system. A simple switch on the rear panel allows the same input to be switched
to a secondary set at line level. This input is specially configured to offer
further isolation and reduce noise. This makes it ideally suited for connection
of more sensitive products such as an external MM or MC phono stage.
If your system is not vinyl based, the same socket allows
this line input to be used with any line level product (such as a CD player or
DAC), ensuring maximized connectivity via the back panel. These features,
coupled with Polypropylene capacitors throughout the signal path, improved
power supplies and increased output power to 105 watts per channel, all housed
in a brand new custom designed case, combine to give the best performance
Elicit to date.
