Rega Bias 2 Cartridge
The new Rega Bias 2 cartridge offer outstanding sound quality and value for money. Proprietary designs use new parallel wound coils and pivot pads for improved detail and accuracy The Rega Bias has a conventional 0.5″ centre distance and two hole mounting and will therefore fit all standard tone arms.
The overall design makes it a perfect match for the P2. Rega entered the cartridge market in the early 80’s and now has six moving-magnet designs. All cartridges are hand made by Rega utilizing custom coil winding techniques and ultra high precision moulded bodies. The Rega cartridge is a one piece moulding made of Pocan, a polymer with hardness greater than industrial aluminium. Most cartridges loose high frequency energy by the movements generated in many joints created in conventional manufacturing. Most cartridges have five or six joints between the stylus mounting and the cartridge/head shell face. Rega cartridges have none! Most cartridges have to allow for large tolerances when manufacturing automatically with a reasonable gap of 0.7mm between the moving magnet and the pole pieces.
This gap on Rega cartridges is only 0.25mm, much lower than any moving magnet cartridge we have tested
