The Rega Nd3 Moving Magnet Cartridge was developed over 10 years and promises to deliver ‘next level’ performance from moving magnet technology.

The Nd range (patent pending) we believe is a world first to use ultra-high powered Neodymium magnets which allow us to create this totally unique design.

Description

Rega Nd3 Moving Magnet Cartridge

Each Rega Nd3 Moving Magnet Cartridge is meticulously hand-made by the Rega highly skilled technicians.

The design uses brand new generator geometry with perfect symmetry to achieve accurate channel balance.

The Nd3 also has an optimised pole gap for superior linearity and cross talk characteristics. This provides a far wider soundstage than the previous models.

This new cartridge is created with miniaturised parallel coils. These are wound in house utilising 38-micron wire with just 1275 turns. This produces a low inductance, low impedance generator giving vastly improved high frequency response.

In keeping with their commitment to sustainability, the Nd range is supplied in 100% recyclable packaging.

Review

“It is a very sophisticated cartridge for the price, one that is capable of delivering the fine detail of vocal effects, and give those vocals a degree of expression rarely heard in relatively affordable cartridges. Depth of image is particularly good too as is bass, both are a reflection of the increased resolution in the highs that the Nd3 delivers.” JASON KENNEDY – EDITOR OF THEEAR.NET

Nd Magnet technology

Often used in Moving Coil designs (including Rega’s own) they believe the Nd3 is the first moving magnet to utilise a Neodymium (Nd) N55 magnet. This is the world’s most powerful commercially available magnet. It is a crucial component that makes this unique design possible by delivering extra power than standard bar magnet designs.

Glass filled PPS body

The complete assembly is housed in their zero tolerance Injection molded glass filled polyphenylene sulphide body (PPS). This is a lightweight and highly rigid material. A low mass body reduces stress on the tonearm bearings, which then aids free movement which is critical in accurate vinyl replay. This new body design was inspired by the hugely successful MC range.

Cantilever & stylus profile

The Nd3 aluminium cantilever is fitted with a precision elliptical stylus. This profile provides exceptional tracking accuracy and extracts great levels of detail from the vinyl surface.

Factory Fitted options

The Nd3 cartridge will be offered as a factory fitted option on the Planar 2 and Planar 3 turntables offering exceptional performance and value for these models. The factory fitted package is offered at a discounted rate compared to when purchased separately, ask our team for details.

Rega rebuild scheme

The unique pivot pad design of Rega cartridges improves performance by eliminating the mechanical joint between the stylus housing and the main body. This vastly improves tracking ability and stability of the stylus.

If you should damage or wear out your Rega cartridge, simply return it to Rapallo (if you brought it from us) and we will supply you with a rebuild cartridge fitted with a new cantilever, stylus and pivot pad.

Each rebuild is fully tested as a new cartridge would be.

The rebuild is sold at a reduced price once you trade in your worn or damaged cartridge that is equivalent to a replacement stylus offered by other manufacturers.
