The Rega Apheta 3 Moving Coil Cartridge is the perfect partner for the latest Rega Planar 8 and Rega Planar 10 turntables. The Apheta 3 can be purchased individually or supplied factory fitted to a Rega turntable at a discounted package rate.
For more than 15 years Rega has been perfecting its unique designs of moving coil cartridges and have pioneered undamped micro mass generation systems coupled with high integrity jointless bodies. In recent times Rega have achieved new levels of power from rare earth magnets.
Rega have the boundaries with the Apheta 3 moving coil cartridge and for several years have been developing state of the the art diamond profiles of a “Fine Line “design, mounted through 90 degrees. This work has resulted in the Rega Apheta 3 extracting even more detail from the record groove which of course translates into more music. The same technique is used with the Rega Aphelion 2 reference model.
The Rega Apheta 3 features a super high-powered, neodymium magnet and a coil that has been meticulously wound by hand on an iron cross, that is 50% smaller than the MK1 Rega Apheta. This weight reduction allows Rega greater freedom to track the vinyl groove.
The Rega Apheta 3 is housed within a completely redesigned aluminium single piece 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.
