The Rega Apheta 3
For over 15 years, Rega has perfected its unique designs of moving coil cartridges. Pioneering undamped micro mass generation systems coupled with high integrity jointless bodies has been a hallmark. In recent times, new levels of power have been achieved from rare earth magnets. This 15-year evolution, employing the latest technological manufacturing process and recognized laws, led to the hugely successful Apheta 2.
With Apheta 3, Rega has pushed another boundary. For several years, the development of state-of-the-art diamond profiles of a “Fine Line” design mounted through 90 degrees (the same technique used in Rega’s Aphelion 2 reference model) has been underway. This effort has resulted in Apheta 3 extracting even more detail from the record groove, translating into more music.
A unique design
Apheta 3 showcases a super high-powered neodymium magnet and a coil meticulously hand-wound on an iron cross, now fifty percent smaller than the MK1 model. This weight reduction provides greater freedom to track the vinyl groove. The Apheta 3 resides in a completely redesigned, single-piece, aluminum anodized body and is safeguarded by a CAD-designed, smoked rigid cover to protect the internal fine wires, ensuring safe and risk-free handling during fitting.
The Apheta 3 stands as the perfect partner for the latest Planar 8 and Planar 10 turntables. It can be supplied factory-fitted at a discounted package rate. For details, please consult your retailer.
