Rega RP10/Aphelion demoed once, dream turntable with REGA's best cartridge ever [Expired]

    NO RESERVE! FLASH AUCTION DUE TO REMODELLING!


The all new RP10 utilises a unique new stressed skin structure produced from thin phenolic skins sandwiching a featherweight nitrogen expanded, closed cell, polyolefin foam core first seen on the RP8. This then has a structural brace applied either side between the main bearing and tonearm mountings. On the RP10 these are made from both Magnesium and phenolic resin, differing materials to reduce unwanted resonance to a minimum.

Aphelion moving coil

The Aphelion is the third generation of Rega's unique moving coil cartridges.Taking the technology developed from the latest Apheta 2 to the next level, our engineers have fine tuned every aspect of the original design.

Aphelion features a new boron cantilever and super high-powered, neodymium magnet and a coil meticulously hand wound on an iron micro cross that is fifty percent smaller than the original. The weight reduction of the generator allows us greater freedom to track the vinyl groove accurately ensuring even more detail is extracted from the vinyl.The Aphelion is housed within a completely redesigned, 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 is the perfect partner for the RP10 turntable and RB2000 tonearm - see complementary components. The power supply is housed in a custom built Rega housing and features a crystal controlled Digital Signal Processing unit that is factory tuned to each individual motor.  This again reduces vibration and guarantees near perfection in terms of speed stability from the motor. The motor in turn then drives the ceramic platter via a CNC machined pulley and sub-platter running in a similarly machined bearing housing.

The package is rounded off with the hand assembled RB2000 tonearm using hand paired interference fit bearings and general tolerences so fine that no adhesive is required or used during construction. The tonearm is very light and rigid with minimal mechanical joints ensuring fantastic detail retrieval especially when partnered with one of the Rega moving coil cartridges.

In short: this is an Analog dream machine. Demoed once, tested with Deviale, Technics, Linn and other amps, and worked amazing but due to Rega's grounding scheme not compatible with our client's AAVIK amplifiers.

His loss is your gain, Table and cartridge carefullly tested less than 2 hours.
