5th gen Rega Elicit
Tuesday, April 26, 2022

The all new Elicit Mk5 stereo integrated amplifier is designed and built to the highest standard. Housed in Rega’s latest custom case to match the rest of the range, the Mk5 builds on previous Rega designs by using their Class A/B power amplifier circuit to deliver 105 Watts per channel into eight Ohm loads (127W into six Ohms). The new Elicit incorporates a high-quality MM phono stage and the headphone socket has been integrated such that the speaker switching is performed by the output mute relay so as not to obstruct the signal path. Rega have also incorporated a new DAC design offering digital connectivity albeit without USB. 

The Elicit Mk5 now shares design features taken directly from the highly acclaimed Aethos amplifier. It has the same discrete FET based preamplifier circuit, plus an Alps volume potentiometer has been introduced to further improve sonic and technical performance. As you would expect, special attention has been paid to the selection of key audio components. Discrete circuitry, high-quality relays, polypropylene capacitors, and Sanken output transistors are used throughout the amplifier. The Elicit Mk5 retails for £2,000.
