Rega Aphelion 2 Cartridge

Presenting the Aphelion 2, the culmination of four generations of our meticulously crafted handmade moving coil cartridges. Building upon the groundbreaking technology of the original Aphelion and the latest Apheta 3, our engineers have taken every aspect of the design to new heights, fine-tuning each detail for unparalleled performance.

At the forefront of micro engineering and design, the Aphelion 2 boasts a unique hand-wound micro cross and coil assembly directly mounted onto a Boron rod cantilever. The advanced 'fine line' profile nude diamond stylus, mounted through 90 degrees, offers exceptional stiffness and control over the stylus, requiring a 'zero tolerance' approach to engineering to achieve the highest level of performance to date from a Rega cartridge. Designed to complement Rega's reference range of turntables, including the prestigious Naiad.

Key Features:

  • Graded zero tolerance black anodized aluminum body
  • Boron rod cantilever
  • 'Fine line' profile, nude diamond stylus
  • Iron micro cross and coil assembly, creating one of the world's smallest MC generators
  • World's most powerful miniaturized neodymium magnet
  • High specification fine wire 0.018 mm

Rega's Moving Coil cartridge design is distinguished by its approach to achieving an ultra-low mass generator, undamped and utilizing a unique rhomboid pivot for the cantilever powered by an exclusive Neodymium magnet system. This design necessitates a meticulously engineered cartridge body, machined from a single piece of high-quality aluminum, requiring Rega's years of expertise to achieve. The Aphelion 2 eschews the conventional tie wire suspension system, eliminating high-frequency resonance and the need for damping materials.

Technical Specifications:

  • Tracking Pressure: 1.9 g
  • Input Load Impedance: 100 ohms
  • Output Impedance: 10 ohms
  • Nominal Output Voltage: 350μV
  • Channel Balance: ≥ 10 μV
  • Separation: ≥ -29 dB
  • Mass: 6 g
  • Load Setting For Adjustable MC Stages:
    • Impedance: 100 ohms
    • Capacitance: 1000pF
    • Gain Setting: High ("On" position for Rega phono stages")
