    I know Paul. I was wondering if this is a problem. But i think the people at rega know their stuff. Years ago when an amp got hot it was usually a bad sign, but now i read this isn’t an issue anymore. And class a always gets hot i believe.

    Still i think they could have done better to reduce the heat as this is a class a/b amplifier. It’s the only thing that puts a little doubt in my mind.

    Best regards
