Rega Aphelion 2 - Reference level moving coil cartridge

The ultimate in micro engineering, precision, innovation and craftsmanship.

'One of the first notes I made after installing the Aphelion 2 in a Rega P10 was: it’s not going to do anyone’s vinyl habit any good. Three months and several hundred tracks later I realise that not only does this cartridge make you want to listen to more vinyl but if that vinyl is of approximately the same vintage as the recording you won’t want to do anything else. In other words, remasters won’t do, not even audiophile ones in most cases. But to get back to the beginning the Aphelion 2 might look very much like any of Rega’s metal bodied moving coil cartridges but there are small but significant differences that put it in a 'completely different league.'
 
JASON KENNEDY, THE EAR

Aphelion 2 is the 4th generation of Rega's unique handmade moving coil cartridges.Taking the technology developed from the original Aphelion and the latest Apheta 3 to the next level, our engineers have now fine-tuned every aspect of the original designs.

Aphelion 2 features a boron rod cantilever now fitted with our 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 us 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, aluminium black anodised body and protected by a CAD designed, clear rigid cover to protect the internal fine wires, making handling whilst fitting, safe and risk free.

The Aphelion 2 is the perfect partner for the multi-award winning Planar 10 turntable and can be supplied factory fitted as a discounted package
