Rega Elys 2 Cartridge - Ex Demonstration
Excellent condition, approx 20 hours use.
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 Rega Elys 2 was specifically designed with the RB300 tone arm in mind and has a three point mounting system. The sound quality over the Bias is most apparent with the dynamics and separation between various musical instruments. The overall design makes it a perfect match for all Rega Turntables.
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.
