The Aphelion is the third generation of Rega's
unique moving coil cartridges. Taking the technology
developed from the latest Apheta 2 to the next
level, our engineers have fine tuned every aspect of the original design.
Aphelion features a new boron cantilever and super
high-powered, neodymium magnet and a coil meticulously hand wound
on an iron micro cross that is fifty percent smaller than the original.
The weight reduction of the generator allows us greater freedom
to track the vinyl groove accurately ensuring even more detail is
extracted from the vinyl.
The Aphelion is housed within a completely redesigned,
single piece, aluminium black anodised body and
protected by a CAD designed, clear rigid cover to protect the internal
fine wires, making handling whilst fitting, safe and risk free.
The Aphelion is the perfect partner for the RP10 turntable
and RB2000 tonearm
The hand built Aphelion Moving Coil cartridge is the
ultimate in micro engineering and design.Taking two years to develop
this ground breaking new cartridge is guaranteed to retrieve more music
from your vinyl than ever before.
To improve stiffness we have introduced a boron rod
cantilever to increases tracking accuracy and performance. The stylus
is a diamond 'Vital' profile rotated through 90 degrees to improve rigidity of
the diamond mount.
