The Aphelion 2 is the 4th generation of Rega’s moving coil cartridges, it takes the technology developed from the latest Apheta 3 to “the highest level”.

Rega Aphelion 2

Aphelion 2 features an ultra-rigid boron rod cantilever fitted with our most advanced “fine line type” nude diamond profile. Aphelion 2 uses a super high-powered neodymium magnet and a coil hand wound on an iron micro cross. The weight reduction of the generator allows greater freedom to track the vinyl groove. The Aphelion 2 is housed within a single piece, aluminium black anodised body and protected by a CAD designed, distinctive yellow rigid cover to protect the internal fine wires, making handling whilst fitting, safe and risk free.

Rega says the Aphelion 2 is the perfect partner for the Planar 10 turntable and will be supplied as standard on the ultimate Rega turntable the Naiad.
