Experience and passion combine to make a truly unique moving coil cartridge
Rega have pioneered undamped micro mass generation systems coupled with high integrity jointless bodies. In recent times, they have achieved new levels of power from rare earth magnets. This 15 year evolution using the latest technological manufacturing process and recognised laws (Flemings) bought Rega the hugely successful Apheta 2.
With the Apheta 3 Rega have pushed another boundary. For several years they’ve been developing state of the the art diamond profiles of a “Fine Line “design mounted through 90 degrees (the same technique used in the Aphelion reference model). This work has resulted in Apheta 3 extracting even more detail from the record groove which of course translates into more music.
Apheta 3 features a super high-powered, neodymium magnet and a coil meticulously hand wound on an iron cross that is fifty percent smaller than the MK1 model. This weight reduction allows the cartridge greater freedom to track the vinyl groove. The manual process is extremely specialised, with only a handful of people in the UK able to carry out the precise work involved.
The Apheta 3 is housed within a completely redesigned, single piece, aluminium anodised body and protected by a CAD designed, smoked rigid cover to protect the internal fine wires, making handling whilst fitting, safe and risk free.
The Apheta 3 is the perfect partner for the latest Planar 8 and Planar 10 turntables. The Apheta 3 can be supplied factory fitted at a discounted package rate. Please ask your retailer for details.
