Rega Aphelion Reference Phono Cartridge
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. 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. The Aphelion is the perfect partner for the RP10 turntable and RB2000 tonear.
