Rega Aphelion 2 Moving Coil Cartridge

 

The Aphelion 2 on the P10 makes for an astonishingly exciting and engaging musical experience, one that had me using expletives in an attempt to get my enthusiasm down in the notes. It does wide bandwidth with meaty, weighty bass that is incredibly nimble but powerful too. It does image scale, depth and three dimensionality with ease when the requisite information is in the groove, and it does tonal finesse that will keep a tube lover’s head in the clouds.

The Aphelion 2 is the fourth generation of Rega's unique moving coil cartridges.Taking the technology developed from the original Aphelion and the latest Apheta 3 to the next level, Rega's engineers have fine-tuned every aspect of the original design.

Aphelion 2 features a boron rod cantilever now fitted with Rega's most advanced "fine line type" nude diamond profile, combined with a super high-powered neodymium magnet and a coil meticulously hand wound on an iron micro cross. The weight reduction of the generator allows greater freedom to track the vinyl groove ensuring even more detail is extracted from the vinyl. The Aphelion 2 is housed within a single-piece black anodized aluminum body, and protected by a CAD-designed, clear rigid cover to protect the internal fine wires, making for safer handling whilst fitting.

The Aphelion 2 is the perfect partner for the Rega Planar 10 turntable.
