We have one brand new model of these at this super clearance price from our Camp Hill Brisbane Store. The design of Rega's Apheta eliminates excessive high frequency resonance excited by conventional tie wire designs. Apheta's natural high frequency resonance is subtle and low in amplitude, therefore eliminating the need for insensitive damping designs. The Apheta is completely manufactured by hand by Rega's highly skilled in-house production team. Rega values musicality and natural tonality over sterile, hyper-detailed presentation. Unlike 99% of existing Moving Coil Phono Cartridges available today that are all still based on 50 year old technology, the Apheta contains neither a steel suspension tie wire system nor a foam damper. After 4 years and many hundreds of experiments the innovative design of the Apheta was complete: one inspired by modern materials and the basic laws of magnetism. The body is a solid alloy with a transparent, acrylic housing; the stylus is a Rega Vital Profile, a nude elliptical stylus on a tapered aluminium cantilever. The result is super clear high frequency combined with firm tight bass.
