Details

Rega have worked hard on extracting even more performance from the new range of cartridges - generating superior sound and dynamic quality at no extra cost over their predecessors. Rega have improved production methods utilising new technology which has become available. All you have to do is listen! The RB78 is a general purpose mono cartridge designed to play most 78 rpm records. Design – No Energy Sapping Joints The Exact shares the same body molding as the rest of the new Rega cartridge range. The body molding is a one-piece body and has no energy sapping joints between the stylus mounting and headshell contact face. The headshell face is machined perfectly flat to ensure maximum contact between the cartridge and headshell. Coil Winding – One-Third Less Wire Rega has designed and developed its own coil-winding machine allowing them to manufacture coils in a completely new and innovative way. This means approximately one third less wire is used than in Rega’s previous cartridges producing a more efficient and reduced mass cartridge. Packing – More for the Cartridge Rega has not tried to create a false impression of product expense by using elaborate packaging. By using the simplest and inexpensive cartridge carton possible, yet still avoiding transit damage, Rega spends more on the cartridge itself - ensuring better value. Assembly – Hand Crafted Due to the design and extremely high tolerances of Rega cartridges, the assembly methods are more akin to watch making than to a mass production assembly line. Every cartridge is hand built. The highly skilled operatives use little more than tweezers and microscopes. Each cartridge is then adjusted and tested twice during a 24-hour period. Such methods are expensive and time consuming but Rega feels the result is worth it. We know you will too! Rega 78-2 Cartridge Specifications: Output: 6.2 - 6.8mV
