I am sorry to curb the enthusiasm but I owned the 1993 Elicit and it was one of the worst amplifiers I have ever auditioned. The sound was compressed, grey, severely lacking in macro dynamics, and, to boot, the input switching circuit had a bug - when selecting CD, the phono stage was not disconnected and the hiss from the phono stage was mixed with the CD input (of course, if was set to MC, the problem was worse).
The odd thing is that it did sound very good with Vinyl, and it had a really good phono stage. If you listen exclusively to analog, then it's worth seeking. I would even suggest to buy one and use it as a phono stage, although I admit I am not sure it had a tape output or pre-amp output - you will have to check this out. But for CD or any line level source, it sounded awful. Even the old Brio (which was much, much cheaper) sounded better than the Elicit.
