The Rega Ania moving coil cartridge was inspired by the success of the Apheta 2 and Aphelion MC cartridges. Using the same exceptionally complex hand wound micro coil found in the rest of the range, the Ania is housed in a unique PPS highly rigid body, ensuring accurate construction and Rega’s three-point fixing method ensuring optimum connection to the headshell and automatic setting for overhang.

Welcome to the world of moving coils
Rega’s Moving Coil cartridge design is unique in its approach to achieving an ultra-low mass generator that is undamped (no tie wire) using a unique rhomboid pivot for the cantilever powered by a purpose-designed, exclusive to Rega, Neodymium magnet system. This type of design requires a zero-tolerance engineered cartridge body which is Rega’s area of expertise and with the Apheta 3 and Aphelion 2 products, these bodies are machined from one piece of the highest quality aluminium. This is a difficult and expensive process requiring all of Rega’s years of experience to achieve. In particular, the “zero” tolerancing of the body is required in the alignment and dimension of the pivot pad mounting hole and the magnet mechanism mounting hole relationship.
