Hello all (mates?). I just bought a clamshell version of the Rega Elicit amp and while I'm awaiting it's arrival, I have a few questions: 1) One of the RCA inputs in the back has lost its sleeves. Where can I find replacements for them? Anywhere or are these made of British unobtanium featuring the blood, sweat, and tears of Norton motorcycle owners? Also, do they just slide into place or is soldering into place needed? No problem if that's the case. 2) How does one open these clamshell units? Is this a process that is outlined in the manual (of which there is one that is coming with the amp, I believe)? I enjoy looking at the innards of electronic devices. 3) Right now, I am running a pair of Acoustic Research AR-2ax which are nice, but require a lot of juice from the amp to get them to their potential. Should I also start looking for some other speakers? Or should what I have be OK? I guess the real answer will be when I get the amp in place and just listen to some music. 4) This will be my first amp without tone controls. Oh man, what have I gotten myself into? I feel like I missed my opportunity for an "innit" and to proclaim my love for Crystal Palace football.
