Conventional MC cartridges utilize a steel suspension system (tie wire) which creates a high amplitude H.F resonance (normally around 8-12Khz). Such resonance is unacceptable and is usually damped by a rudimentary piece of foam rubber. However the foam rubber deteriorates with age and cannot prevent the complete structure from vibrating and "ringing". The specifics and adjustment of the tie wire and damping determine whether the cartridge is under damped (bright) or over damped (warm and bass heavy). A happy medium is rarely achieved.
This encouraged Rega to pursue a new direction inspired by modern materials and the basic laws of magnetism. The Rega Apheta 2 contains neither a tie wire nor a foam damper. Although outwardly the "2" looks almost identical to the original pretty much the only component carried over is the stylus tip! It took 4 years and many hundreds of experiments to complete the innovative design of the Apheta. This model takes that vision even further and reduces high end "fizz" and reduces surface noise.
Moving coil aficionados will all recognise the long search for super clear high frequency combined with firm tight bass.

This is because some items require more setting up than others (e.g. multi room systems) or have advanced settings.
To ensure you get the most from your equipment we need to take you through the process of setting it up correctly.
Sometimes the equipment is simply not suitable for shipping (e.g. glass stands that have been built up).
Simply reserve your product today and then arrange to pick it up from your nearest Audio-T store.
Items showing as "In Stock" are within the Audio T group and we may need additional time to transfer to your selected branch.
