Rega have just launched two new models, the Bias 2 and the Elys 2. These are improved models of the classic cartridges and feature new parallel wound coils, which use 33% less wire for claimed improved detail retrieval.The new Rega Bias 2 cartridge offer outstanding sound quality and value for money. Proprietary designs use new parallel wound coils and pivot pads for improved detail and accuracy The Rega Bias has a conventional 0.5" centre distance and two hole mounting and will therefore fit all standard tone arms. The overall design makes it a perfect match for the P2.Rega entered the cartridge market in the early 80's . All cartridges are hand made by Rega utilizing custom coil winding techniques and ultra high precision moulded bodies. The Rega cartridge is a one piece moulding made of Pocan, a polymer with hardness greater than industrial aluminium.
Most cartridges loose high frequency energy by the movements generated in many joints created in conventional manufacturing. Most cartridges have five or six joints between the stylus mounting and the cartridge/head shell face. Rega cartridges have none! Most cartridges have to allow for large tolerances when manufacturing automatically with a reasonable gap of 0.7mm between the moving magnet and the pole pieces. This gap on Rega cartridges is only 0.25mm, much lower than any moving magnet cartridge we have tested.
Offers a refinement over the AT95E, itself a fine budget model. I have used all of the Rega MMs over the years. The MkII versions are better than the originals. Highly recommended for use in Rega arms. Easy to fit. Great value.
